How would I write a for loop within a for loop and get this result?

Here's the tongue twister:

I'm doing a for loop and I get this result:

Florida
Louisiana
Texas
Kentucky

What I need to do is go through that for loop and WITHIN that same cycle do something like this:

First, here's my starting point:

foreach($page_display as $page)
{
//normal listing of results like what you see
}

Now, here's what I need to do:

foreach($page_display as $page)
{
   foreach($page_display as $page)
   {
   if($current_state <> $page['state']
      {
       //here I need to create a list of every state EXCEPT the one, so, in this scenario, I need four different recordsets:
       #1
       Louisiana
       Texas
       Kentucky
       #2
        Florida
        Texas
        Kentucky
       #3
       Florida
       Louisiana
       Kentucky
      #4
      Florida
      Louisiana
      Texas
      }
   }
}

How would I do this?
