94. Can we put a stop the the Heartland crap?
I'm sick to death of the idea that the midwest has some monopoly on morality or values.

That's complete bunk.

The heartland mono as well is complete crap.

If you live in the US you are a US citizen-- no one group has a better claim to morality etc.

For those of you who might think this comes from someone who is tied to one locale in the US--

I'm a military brat-- lived in 15 different places around the country growing up-- met and dealt with folks from all over-- I'm not the expert--but know enough to know that headlines like Missouri focuses on values is crap!

*end of rant*
