Advantages of the Hudson Valley

As you may know, I live near a pretty rural town town in the Hudson Valley, and there are interesting advantages to this part of the country. To wit: this morning we ate breakfast in the local diner. The somewhat elderly couple at the next booth were reading the morning paper of a Sunday, and complaining about the political news with a “What’s the world coming to?” kind of tone. And the complaint I overheard was: “It’s terrible that John Kerry won’t just come out and unequivocally say he’ll support these gay marriages.”

How many rural areas of this country can offer that particular brand of outrage?
