Which job is number one, in your State?

  Each State has a distinctive occupation, it's listed for your state on the map.  In Maine the job that most identifies the State is Logger, or maybe more correctly Logging Equipment Operator, most of the work is done by machines (harvesters).
  It's a surprise that Farmer isn't more popular in states like Nebraska or North Dakota; isn't that where most of our food comes from?  But I guess Farmer isn't a distinctive occupation - but it should be.
  The article, in the Bangor Daily News also list on map of trees per person.  When you see that maybe it makes sense to list "logger".
