25. love the Bourbon. and great tobacco. i like Kentucky overall.
Edited on Wed Feb-04-09 11:53 AM by NuttyFluffers
not too big on the horses, though. edit: the horse farms and horse research at UK are bar none, exquisite. but i'm not a horse fan. there's a reason why most of the world's royalty have at least some horses around there.

excellent fried chicken and biscuits and gravy. fantastic string beans, too. Cumberland Gap and Mammoth Caves are pretty. kinda surreal trip when you head into Appalachia, but overall not as hostile as popularly imagined, rather congenial.

nice state, even if some of the people have been misguided lately. even though they had Jim Crow laws (big minus) when Brown v. Board of Education said stop, Kentucky started bussing in the whole state ASAP and without nary a struggle. not as replete historically with Sundown Towns as other states, which is surprising considering region and history. also when Lincoln said, "you're mine, otherwise i can't fight the Civil War" Kentucky didn't split up or say no. brother v. brother did fight against each other, but they didn't break up the commonwealth or overtly break from the union. kinda weird in its go-along-get-along attitude, like "bad choices were made, now they are being corrected, go with the flow..." mind set.

surprisingly pragmatic state most of the time, and quite reserved and quiet about goings on.
