My family is all ex-redneck East Texans and going back there is like going to another planet.My kid is still in school and has lots of family here. My county is pretty blue, but I'm still in Georgia.When I'm out and about, I have no way of deciphering who is a violent MAGAt/ Nazi thug just waiting to take his/her frustrations out on me.

As we passed through East Texas (in a UT Austin van), we saw a pickup truck in the next lane over.
