      I spent three days in Bumfuck Egypt, Tennessee, last year, and another two days driving through other parts of the South. It didn't faze me.

          Heh. That's pretty cool.

          I have friends from Raleigh. It's fairly progressive out there. Sure, in TN and KY I saw people with more fingers than teeth who were very backward in their thinking, but then I can see those people in outer-ring suburbs of the Twin Cities, too. And let's not even get into the 6th district of MN (I live in the 2nd), whence Michele Bachmann comes.
