Nobody will pay attention to your comment... but you're absolutely right. Now, stand back and listen to the muffled dialogues of those whose heads are buried in the sand.

Community colleges are not quite as bad. Nowhere near as liberal as universities.

You may be right about the Ozarks, and southern Missouri in general. But everything north of the Missouri river is really indistiguishable from Iowa.

Rural areas of northern Missouri are worse in terms of poverty issues, educational attainment, and median household income compared to southern areas of Iowa.

Depends on the college and the degree. REALLY nutjob attitudes and classes of course get lots of press so you really only hear the worst stuff and it's disproportionately magnified in the media.
