    Meade County. Isn't that near Ft. Knox? We used to drive through there every summer since the better theaters (or any open theaters half the time) were always closer to Louisville.

    I did not know that about the commercials. I wonder if West Virginians had the same type of commercials. That probably explains why the association with coal seems to be strongest among the older folks I meet. The younger ones I know don't really care too much about coal at all since there's no coal plant near where they live that's hiring.

      About Fort Knox.

      And the coal companies may have run similar TV commercials in West Virginia.  I don't know.  But I do specifically remember the TV commercials in Kentucky, even after all these years.  So I guess they must have been effective with the older generation.
