The Post had a piece reporting on a Gallup survey showing the location of government employees (all levels). As you'd expect, DC, MD, VA are at the top. What's surprising is, they aren't at the very top; Alaska and Hawaii are. Yes, that's right. Sarah Palin was once the governor of the state with the most government employees (percentage of total).
And states like SC, WY, NM, WV, and MS rounded out the top ten. What it is, is a reminder of how big DOD is and the difference it makes in some states.
