Columbus is about the nicest people I've been around


Look, no one is more surprised than I am to say this - but Columbus Georgia has about the nicest people I’ve ever met.  Everyone has smiled, been polite, offered advice when asked. Asked nicely about my husband. I expected a bunch of red-necks following women around to see if they’re pregnant - okay, not really, but I did expect overt conservatism and a lot of confederate flags.

But I have enjoyed myself tons. The people are great. The food is great (I would weigh a ton here in a matter of days). I don’t like the humidity, but that is about it. This city has been really trying to turn around the old buildings, rebuilt downtown.

They are lucky to have a good college and a big Army base nearby, but they have taken advantage of it all. I came down expecting to see a museum, teach and not leave the hotel much. But I am staying at a great place, eating lunch with charming people and tasting bar b que and bourbon at night.  Very nice.

What is too much Taylor Swift

 This much ... when the singer is used to send a message about POSSIBLE future problems?
