Kathryn Jean Lopez seems slightly offended that she can’t take the train to Alabama, at least not easily. Well… I guess it would be nice if we had transit options other than planes and Greyhound, but life is tough all over and most of the country isn’t in easy reach of passenger rail. Nothing special about Alabama — the same would be true of the vast majority of the country outside the northeast. Real America, conservatives!
And, yes, a lot of Alabamians like it that Yankees might have trouble getting here. You guys are nothing but trouble, really.
