Poverty’s Boring.

February 24, 2009

The middle of the county is poor. Ashley and I spent the weekend with her side of the family because of the passing of her grandmother. We drove from Maryland to Illinois, an extremely lengthy drive, and most of that distance is in stupid, stupid poverty. Don’t get me wrong the drive is beautiful, all the trees, and fields, and intermittent snow; but I would not trade civilization for rolling hills any day. The novelty of being “way out there” loses its luster after a while.
