31. that is awful
Just awful.

I have spent a lot of time over the years working with the people you are discarding and condemning here.

"A bus ticket to the bog city" would "cure" them, eh? But I thought you said that they "cannot be changed?"

And we wonder why people resent big city liberals.

Remind me again - just who is it that is prejudiced and ignorant?
