It should be stated right up front that the Midwest, with its rich culture, stark natural beauty and superlative decency, quickly defies stereotypes. Living in the middle of the country is very different from living in the middle of nowhere.Seriously, do rich New Yorkers send their kids to schools that have special classes to teach tone-deaf condescension? I didn't make it much further than that, because reading further would clearly have been the time-management equivalent of throwing good money after bad.
(1) Why is there no noun for this? Nepot seems to mean just "descendant," from the Latin for "nephew."
