So Many Studies, So Little Insight

Posted By on Fri, Oct 2, 2009 at 12:20 PM

My favorite kinds of studies are the ones that present findings everyone already knows. It seems rural Southern children are more likely to live below the poverty line than their urban counterparts. Whoa doctor science, slow down! Are you telling me that poverty spans generations? That neglecting the education systems, transportation infrastructure and incentives for industry causes people to be poor? Please tell me institutionalized racism plays a part in this as well. Indeed, we learn: ''In poor rural communities there still aren't strong schools and real opportunities, especially for African-Americans." You guys, I'm practically a genius. Next thing you know they'll be saying not every woman is the same or that people who make a living getting their heads smashed are at a higher risk for dementia. As for the poor Southern bumpkins? Only LeAnn Rimes and her playgrounds of contrition can save them.
