Yeah, but we are almost 200 miles from Scum hole City! Social distance is not a problem up here.

If we can just get our illustrious Governer to shut down NYC travel to up here and let the rest of us live we might get somewhere.

But he doesn't so they continue to flood up here to their summer homes....

They are seen by locals hitting our stores for supplies along the way. Rude, pushy, all about them. They stand out around here.

Upstate is a different world from what most folks see on the nightly news.

We are despised as deplorables by the City-ots, while they happily consume our agriculture, water, and other essentials. And most all of the State and Federal money too.

This area is a wasteland of abandoned farms and factories which are great to look at and photograph.

We don't matter to the political machine. Plain and simple. We are flyovers.

That's fine, just leave us alone as much as you ignore us and we're happy!

Illinois is the same way generally. Two different worlds.

Just heard hospital won the Quality Texas award for excellence from the Quality Texas Foundation. Being a state award winner qualifies us to go the next step in getting The Baldrige Award, which is about as big as it gets for us. Great birthday present.

The Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award (MBNQA) is an award established by the U.S. Congress in 1987 to raise awareness of quality management and recognize U.S. companies that have implemented successful quality management systems. The award is the nation's highest presidential honor for performance excellence.
