My girlfriend just moved to South Cackalack, and she is alternately horrified and overjoyed by some of the stranger customs here. For example: the booze laws mystify her. She will call me and ask how to purchase alcohol. The fried food, the sweet tea, the barbecue all are enchanting to her. I've lived here for a good portion of my life, so I'm immune to some of the utter insanity that goes on here. Focus: the South. Likes, dislikes, fascinations. Alt. Focus: What is the craziest state in the Union? I have long suspected that SC is the home to more lunacy than many other states. You may remember our Representative calling the President of the United States a liar, much like you would if he denied stealing your cookies at snack time. <a class="postlink" href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/09/09/gop-rep-wilson-yells-out_n_281480.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/09/0 ... 81480.html</a> You may also recall the man who was charged with fucking a horse: <a class="postlink" href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/07/29/rodell-vereen-sc-man-char_n_247245.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/07/2 ... 47245.html</a> A brief glance at Wikipedia points out SC was the first to secede in the Civil War, implemented women's suffrage in 1979, and is home to the infamous Bob Jones University. Finally, our admired state governor lied to his staff about having an affair with an Argentinian...reporter. If you are a public official and you are doing something you need to be kept a secret, shouldn't you do it with someone....NOT A REPORTER? I don't know many reporters, but I do not think they would be good at keeping secrets.
