Apparently, on Prairie Home Companion, the host said something to the effect of: People from states that have no business being states — states like Kansas, Colorado, …, Montana — are everything that’s wrong with this country.
This, naturally, caught my interest. I tried to chase down what exactly was said because it fits in with some things I have been talking about here. I couldn’t find it, but by putting that quote into Google minus the listing of the states, brought up Burt’s Real State post on the first page.
Anyhow, I can’t verify the quote. It was mentioned on Facebook by a friend who heard it first-hand and said that the guy actually went on and on about it. Any further information on this would be appreciated.
