Jeez is right ...

... addressing the redneck problem.

I think reveals much about a certain kind of mindset.

    Marianne Moore on solitude, silence, and restraint

    Silence
    My father used to say,
    "Superior people never make long visits,
    have to be shown Longfellow's grave
    or the glass flowers at Harvard.
    Self-reliant like the cat -
    that takes its prey to privacy,
    the mouse's limp tail hanging like a shoelace from its mouth-
    they sometimes enjoy solitude,
    and can be robbed of speech
    by speech which has delighted them.
    The deepest feeling always shows itself in silence;
    not in silence, but restraint."
    Nor was he insincere in saying, "Make my house your inn."
    Inns are not residences.
