    Love the linkage posts.

    Reading the 40 things list, I felt a bit wistful for the innocence of the 1990s, when Jeff Foxworthy was making a very good living with observations along this line. It was all clean fun, and there was a lot of guffawing. I read this list in amusement, but with a growing kernel of rage that we are the only ones with the enough cultural confidence to laugh at ourselves in this way, and it is the mission of every mainstream institution to erode that confidence. And they’re doing a pretty good job.

    Foxworthy’s “You Might be a Redneck” thing did sort of go on and on, but he could sometimes hit the nail upon the head.

    “If you’ve ever brought a six-pack of beer to a job interview, you might be a redneck.”

    I grew up in Georgia, and have known a few people for whom that wasn’t an impossibility.
