  1. Improbable Joe

    Yeah, because we’re all terrible south of where you live.

  2. I know, Joe, that this is broad-brush offensive, and I know that there are a LOT of progressives struggling to get their voices heard in places where they are a decided and unwelcomed minority, but after what happened in North Carolina yesterday, this struck a chord with me.

    When I was in Florida in February, I listened to ten minutes of a man trying to convince our party that Japanese people were okay being called “Nips” because, you know, “Japan” in Japanese is “Nippon.” Honest to God; he truly believed that. I was dumbfounded, and it was then that I realized that my husband is right when he tells me that I would have a very hard time living in places where thinking like that is still the norm.
