    next to a UM-Rolla professor just before the 2004 election (Environmental Engineering, IIRC).

    We talked about the election, and it was telling that he said all the people he worked with were voting for Kerry, and practically everyone he knew in the greater Rolla area outside of his work was voting for Bush.

    I think there's a lot of resentment among the so-called "Townies" in these areas that drives the politics. Kirksville (home of Truman State) and Maryville (home of Northwest Mo State) are similar.

    Cutting off their noses to spite their faces.
