    there's a great diary right now about how screwed up modern American children are now because they have antibacterial wipes and soaps for every event in the day, and aren't allowed to roam around outside.  That is true, unless you're rural.  And I don't mean living in a city of 5,000.  

    I mean living in the true boonies, you won't have the luxury of being so obsessively in denial about the real world.

    And to be honest I'm a city-dweller who tends not to care much for most cities. They're good for universities and their related doings for me, and buying decent clothes and food.  You can find some people who can stand you and you find some connection with, but you generally can in really, truly small communities, just because people realize that they have few options if they're not cooperative.
