Discipline - That article was great. What's weird is that it's a joke, but it's exactly what's being done with ID. There is no exaggeration, just parallel. I propose, as other's have on this site before, that every time we get any kind of ID argument we just say, "Gravity," and leave it at that.

Vecingetorix - I'm a Columbia grad who grew up in urban Indiana (there is such a thing) and has lived in Oregon, Arizona, New York, Turkey, and Malawi: and you are right. There are negative attitudes and assumptions between urbanites and ruralites, Easterners and Westerners, coastal folks and midwesterners, southerners and just about everybody. Much of this is small minded bullshit, meant only to boost the ego of those uncomfortable with living anywhere but where they are from. I personally find no place to be overall superior or inferior to any other, but each has its own qualities, good and bad. However, there is a distribution of qualities that does correspond to geography, and that plays a part as well. Does that help?
