Report Matt Gaetz...? in Tongue-Tied Lightning Posted April 22 1 hour ago, sonicshoulder said: As a proud Kentuckian I have to say I feel your pain. If we make the news it usually not flattering and we are popular punchlines for most jokes relating to illiteracy, obesity and incest. Being said I absolutely love my state and all of its unique areas. We have some of the best scenery in the world, its cheap and people for the most part really look out for each other. I've actually been asked numerous times by visitors or transplants "why is everyone so nice?"...like its offending them that everyone is so nice!!! I heartily concur. It helps that you and I live in the more populated / university-influenced / (dare I say) progressive areas of the state. There's definitely a lot of great folks all over, but the newsmakers you mentioned out in KY's rural maga-land are very much real. But we're getting there.
