“Welcome to Maine… Now Go Home!”
This is the bumper sticker I saw in Jefferson, Maine today. I’d seen it before. Today I started to think, “How insular and parochial of Maine!” — but then I stopped mid-thought. It could be that such sentiments are part of the scene in every part of the country, […]
