    (Actually, I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinions, eh?)

    because it's based on experience, facts, data, reality.  

    We are supposed to value that stuff here.

    But about a week ago, someone made a snotty comment about SD, ND, MT, AK and a couple of other states being "terrible states" (the context being that Romney would carry those states). And I just wondered, who in the world makes that kind of stupid statement?

    How in the world could someone call Alaska AND Montana AND South Dakota "terrible"?  They're entirely different places with really different types of citizens (if you can lump a whole state of people into an archtype or two).

    Ignorance. And, I'm afraid, the unfortunate habit of speaking from the culture of pseudo- elitism that often looks down on rural states (Which earns users nearly automatic recs here).

    I totally get where you're coming from, and I respect it. There are a couple places in the country that I have little inclination to return to, much less live. But that's based on experience.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
