"National" weather report on any news channel -
I'm sure glad to know how normal the rest of the country is ... and that I live in a part of the country that ... well, just really doesn't count. I think raving fanatics on the right - Palin, Tea Partiers, black helicopter guys - may see the country in the opposite way to the East Coast elites: the East Coast consists only of D.C. and NYC, and is occupied by latte-drinkers, abortion-seekers and gays. Apparently, they know of no union members or tradesmen there.
How limited we are in our perspectives.
