This post reminded me of Gary, an alcoholic friend. Forced into rehab to save his job, Gary approached me to apologize for his alcohol-fueled workplace behavior. Gary was a talented guy, but I was having none of it. "Gary," I blurted, "This is the Mahoning Valley (a depressed area known for public corruption)! Who wants to stay sober?" He lost his "rehab face", and we both had a good laugh. (He moved on and did much better.) Jack/Youngstown
As a former resident of Minnesota, I have to say that if this were happening in winter, there would be an apocolypse in that state along with convoys to Wisconsin, Iowa, and the Dakotas!
