    are the prime causes of the South's problem attitudes. But things change.
    In 1933, the KKK openly took over the legislature of Oregon.
    And in 2008, it was Obama's win over Clinton in Mississippi's primary that made his nomination inevitable.
    One thing will never change, however, and that is that the ideas of those at the bottom aren't as 'enlightened' as those of more comfortable parts of society. (Anybody want to fight about it?)
