Exactly! It rubs on me when people blame everyone of a state, not that they don't share some blame, but the fact in the belief that this is isolated and somehow deserving.That's the rub. Southern Illinois is very rural and full of mainly christian conservative farming folks. It's not a "third world shit hole" at all. The fact that they have to live under the Northern end of the states commie liberal rules is absurd. It's also a forewarning to places like Texas with huge liberal population centers like Austin and Houston.
