A commenter on this blog just sent me this article. It has an excellent description of small town America, and how it has been decimated by globalism. And it is right on target in its characterization of the attitudes of big city liberals toward people they regard as hicks.
The article gets a little farfetched towards the end, when it starts talking about civil war, and the farmers refusing to feed people from the cities. But, it's still a fun read.
