Hot Pink, Red and Blue
When we get to the trucking place, I notice immediately it is full of white males - one white female works behind the counter answering the phones, of course.
A very tall, big and kinda young white man approaches me, grinning, informing me that - he sweeps his hand horizontally from left to right across his forehead, indicating the part of Illinois that is "blue".
He wants me to know that those 5 inches of the top northern part of Illinois is blue - and the rest of us are red! Did I know I was in the red part? hmmmmm
Then he glances at the anti-monsanto mural, squints to his buddies who have joined him, and waves in a kinda southernly and easternly direction, telling me that monsanto is the largest employer in these parts here.
I am happy it only cost $90 to tow my truck and the tow truck is a bright neon pink with royal blue trim. hmmmm
