Are Small Towns Narrow Minded?

Most of the blogs I follow are text based, but there are a couple that regularly post images or cartoons, Gaping Void is one of my favourites, and this cartoon from today cracks me up. Click the link to see the image. Small town, usa – gapingvoid: “cartoons drawn on the back of business cards”.

Having moved from a City of 250,000 people on the Coast in Australia to a rural City of 7,500 people in the middle of BC, Canada, sometimes it feels like this. The cultural diversity in larger cities is evident, particularly when it comes to  food – but I say we can always visit those larger cities, and enjoy the countryside the rest of the time!
