Gee, nobody ever told me *any* good stories like this when I lived there.

Never heard of it. Whenever I asked anyone there about entertainment
possibilites, they tried to get me to join their church. Evidently, I was
asking the wrong people. Or they have gotten *very* good over the years
at maintaining their cover...
Say, where did all the black people live? I was shocked when I discovered
that Floyd County was 40 % black because I never *saw* them. I thought it
was creepy that they could stay so well hidden, and even creepier that
they would find it...convenient.
