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.....

That is ridiculous. Neighbors, church groups, and of course the ever present Medicade, and other welfare groups make sure no one is hungry in WVa. Try finding all that assistance in Third World countries. And,yes, I do think WVa is great.
Also I can leave my doors unlocked and not worry. We have wonderful neighbors up and down the rural road where we live, and we know all of them.
Does it make you feel superior to put yourself so far above West Virginians? I, thankfully, don’t have your jaded attitude.
