i was thinking something very much along those lines. The closest to the 60s generation I have ever seen in Fayetteville might be some that hang out at the farmers markets on Sat mornings in the late spring and summer. Fayetteville certainly isn't Berkeley by any stretch of the imagination.

To the OP, NWA is closer to middle income, almost as close the typical suburbs you can get in AR. Suburbs of what? Nothing, just suburbs. You would expect almost to see that big city somewhere in the area. Ft Smith as mentioned is more blue collar, closer to the Bible Belt mentality (this isn't meant to be a negative statement) and seems to be having trouble improving its image as a place to be proud to call home.

Between the University and several companies calling NWA home, the area is very contemporary with a conservataive flare.
