Okay, study this map (there will be no quiz later, but yes, it will come into play…)
Click to enlarge if needed, but the pink indicates places within the US I have lived for, oh, more than 6 months. You may, aside from one wayward state there, note a theme amid those places, and if you have ever lived in the state that seems wayward, you will know that, in fact, that wayward state is not so wayward. As an officer of the law from said state once said unto Ernest after a bar brawl “Well son, a bunch of people who really didn’t need a reason went and got drunk”… Oh, and America’s Wang there? I did not live in the Southern Half of it.
So yes, note the pink. Part II will come after I have stopped laughing and composed my thoughts a bit more on the matter. I do warn however that nasty sarcasm and such might be flowing like cheap whiskey at a Road House….
