. I enjoy Regions because it isn't just another blow-by-blow, politics by the minute blog but one that also takes it's time to examine aspects of the culture and history routinely ignored by the bicoastal big media. Aside from being informative, this kind of commentary is a useful corrective to the heavily upper-middle class, yuppie, urban perspective of the nation seen on television and cable news. There's a whole lot of country out there with distinctive subcultures and regional flavors that seldom get mentioned and their absence is a lacuna in the national mind.
