I saw where the folks in Logan pretty much ran the WestBoro Baptist Church off. And all i can say about that is. Hats off to the folks in Logan. Those Westbrook idiots needed to be run off.<quoted text>
I would take a trip to Sarah Ann if you get the chance. OK...Logan isn't that bad, but it isn't that good either. It made the Drudge Report several times for being bad azz, and I noticed it was the one the Westboro Baptist Church (you know...the guys that said all miners are F ags?) decided not to go to for their own safety! They would have gotten their azzez kicked and handed to them on a silver platter. I lived there and know the place. They would be in the heart of Hatfield country. The church made a wise choice. HA HA!
But the Hatfield Cemetery is something to look at. Logan has lots of things going for it. I don't think it is much worse than parts of Eastern Kentucky (Harlan) for nuts. However, if you have a gun, it might be good to take it.
But as for Logan, Harlan, or any other Southeastern Ky, West Virginia, Virginia small town, they're all pretty much the same. Harlan got its bad rep becuase of all the labor feuds from back in the day. And it has never been able to shed its bad reputation when actually its no worse than any other small Appalachian town.
Just like the Hatfield's/McCoys they may have lived across the river from each other and in different states. But they were basically the same type of people...... "Hillbillies"
I'll tell you one thing I admire about West Virginia. They support their COAL MINERS. Nearly the entire state has come together to fight for their miners. Here in Ky much of our state (Frankfort, Louisville, Lexington) is dead set against coal miners. Its a shame too. They think that all they are doing is shutting down coal miners. But when they lose all of that coal severance tax money their going to regret it. I would bet that coal severance tax money pays for more bridges, roads, pubic parks, libraries, schools in places like Lexington and Louisville than their own tax money does. The idiots just dont realize how much coal does pay for.
