    Try going to Google, and start entering your state's name into the search box. What options or popular related searches begin to pop-up underneath the search box? For me:

    Wisconsin Circuit Court
    Wisconsin Unemployment
    Edit: I'm adding the remaining 8 of the top 10 just for the heck of it:
    Wisconsin Dells
    Wisconsin DNR
    Wisconsin State Journal
    Wisconsin DMV
    Wisconsin Badgers
    Wisconsin Lottery
    Wisconsin Roard Conditions
    Wisconsin Department of Revenue

    Though it's not entirely surprising, it's really quite sad anyway. I wonder if it's the same for other states? (I know I could enter them myself, but I'm trying to elicit some participation here!)

    It's all the sadder when the reason I notice this is because I've been too lazy to bookmark my state's unemployment site, and I have to Google it every time I need to file a weekly claim for partial unemployment.

    Illinois Lottery
    Illinois Secretary of State (that would be due to the DMV being part of it)
    Illinois Department of Corrections :lol 

    In other words, people figuring out how they can get their driver's license to drive to the 7-11 to get a lottery ticket that they can use to bail out a relative.

    So I guess we can all agree that the three most important things to Americans are Money, Football, and Money.
