Maybe you associate with a different type of people than I do. Your time in WVa is like an instant compared with the many years I have lived here, and I have never yet seen a woman covering up black eyes with sun glasses. I don’t go to bars, etc.
Have you ever taken a look at the slums of any major city in the USA? Evidently not, or you would not be making an issue of the small number of, admittedly tragic, poverty stricken people of WVa. But neighbors care for each other here, and that is not so common in other places.
Watch that popcorn, you might drop some leftover venom in it.
Precisely my point and why I said you need to get out more. In my travels with my work I have visited 49 states and over 20 countries. I've worked in south central LA, the south side of Chicago, Queens, the south side of Miami, and many other blighted places. Cell carriers rarely put cell sites in ritzy neighborhoods. I've also worked in many 3rd world countries, like Nicaragua, Brazil and several countries in eastern Europe, just to name a few. West Virginia, especially the coal field in the SW part of the state, is the closest thing to third world I've experienced in the USA. If you think West Virginia is so great you REALLY need to get out and see how the rest of the world lives. I've seen your state from one end to the other. I've met the people and I know what I've experienced. Again, before you shoot the messenger you should broaden your own horizons a wee bit.....
