Perpetuating the Stereotype

I used to think that the typical Southern stereotype that pervades other parts of the country are unfounded and unfair.

Then I went to the Tennessee State Fair.

Good Lord.

If we, as a society, were to take just 10 - 15% of the money we spend on tatoos and Marlboros and put that money toward dental care, we would be much better off.

Try a small town in SC. I grew up nearby and everyonce in a while I want to shake someone and say, "Stop it, that's why they make fun of us."

I spent five years in Minnesota and I can happily report they have just as many bad examples; they just have more space to hide them.
