    Density is destiny. Cities provide diversity of people and experiences. The Greek historians and philosophers noticed this 2500 years ago, that's why they thought of their urban populations as the only fulfilled humans. The rural population, even if it spoke Greek, were considered farm animals.

    A resident of the largest city in a red state will almost certainly be more culturally and intellectually developed, more tolerant, kinder, more curious, and more interesting than her cousin in the rural part of a blue state. It's not that evil people live in rural America, it's that rural America makes people evil.

          A true divide is not possible unless state borders break down. We get it but in reality we aren't the ones talking about leaving in any real seriousness. Red States are saying it, and we are just saying we are happy to help them pack. The people of Austin or Birmingham can make their choice when their Red State leaders decide to go. And if the people of The Iron Range don't want to live in Minnesota they can make the choice to leave as well. Personal responsibility and that nonsense...

                          "Over 1 in 10 new Texans are from California, so everyone is leaving California for Texas."

                          The math: 13% of the non-Texas US population is in California, so that is actually slightly below random chance.

                            I don't envy your therapist having to help you with a Nodak experience that is plume in the sea of Minnesota trauma.

                              Beet farm stench during the thaw after processing is the most foul and violent experience my olfactory has lived through.

                              I've had several projects at beet plants up in MN and ND during processing

                                Having been past the paper mill in Albany, OR and through Arthur Kill (Brooklyn's garbage dump) on Staten Island, I beg to differ. Industrial chicken farms are right up there, too.
