Map of American Human Development Index ratings within the United States, 2010-2011 report.

This article presents a sortable table of U.S. states sorted by their American Human Development Index, according to the American Human Development Project. The data were taken from the American Human Development Report.

The editors of Wikipedia, in their infinite wisdom, decided that this completely-nonsensical table of "values" should replace the actually-useful ranking of U.S. states by normal HDI. Considering that the American Human Development Project is an activist organization with an agenda to promote, it is completely absurd that their pointless "data" should be used to vandalize a page containing actual information.

In other words, this current page is foolish, and if Wikipedia editors have even a shred of dignity, they will revert it to its original form. Whatever drunken chimpanzee actually let this travesty occur should be tossed off the Golden Gate Bridge.
