    You drove in WV on July 4?

    You are a far braver man than I. We live about 10 miles from the WV border, and we cower in the basement until the day is over. The fireworks blend seamlessly into the celebratory gunfire which blends seamlessly into the domestic disturbance gunfire.

    I was going to say... when NYS still had their blue law about beer before noon, people went to Vermont to buy on Sunday morning.

    Someone has to make the cheese and ice cream.

    Perhaps I'm just spoiled, having grown up in SEC country and then living in Texas, LA, and Europe.

    Now you know why I want to be sent out to the St. Paul regional so bad

    Yes. You are spoiled. The year I spent in NC made me realize the, um, demographic limitations of most of the rest of the country.

    Hey, by unscientific sample I'd have put Kansas in particular and the Midwest in general near the top of the talent contest, though granted that sample is dominated by states east of the Mississippi and north of the Potomac -- America's Unattractiveness Belt.

    Is the statistic 30% who are explicitly opposed to alcohol, or 30% who choose not to partake themselves? I like to think there are still SOME people who don't believe that everybody ought to make exactly the same choices they do, but the evidence is pretty scant.

    I haven't really got anything to add. I'm just happy to see the thread on its 2nd page of comments.

    I am home. Nerds unite! (or something )
