4. I grew up in Lincoln

Got my bachelor's degree from UNL and left the state at age 22 two work at a newspaper in South Florida. Lived there for six years, then Colorado for 27 before moving to Iowa three years ago.

Family in Richardson County (Falls City), and they baffle me, though I love them, aside from my one cousin, who's an actual Nazi. They have sent their children to fight and die for this country because of W's bullshit war in Iraq. At another cousin's funeral, one uncle came up to me and actually questioned whether the war was worth it. Yet I see them on facebook with their Trump campaign cookies and signs, and it's just too much for me to understand how otherwise good people can be taken in by such a con artist. And then I realize they're listening to Limbaugh in their tractors all day, and then they come home to Fox News. They are terrified of nonexistent boogiemen concocted by hate radio and Fox News. They're pretty much unreachable, and one of them is truly deplorable. (The Nazi, and that's what Hillary meant when she called THOSE Trump supporters "deplorables."
