    You could probably say similar things about California, although it tips deeper blue on the whole than Texas does toward the red, there is still a major division between how the coastal cities tilt versus the inland agricultural areas.
    Yeah, I don't see a secession scenario as likely, or a civil war. I would have said impossible a few years ago. I think we keep living in a divided country where we are encouraged to hate each other to distract from our government disfunction/servitude of the rich and powerful. As Sour Masher noted it's much easier to complain and demonize the opponent than it is to actually take action

    I guess I incorrectly thought he had moved to Atlanta. Agreed that KS > Ken any day of the week.

    Ah, one of my best theories. Don’t remember what thread that was in but it was one of my finer moments, if I may say so myself.

    I am a remote worker, at least the majority of the time. Which happened to work out well in a global pandemic.

    That's gotta be true at least half the time.
