I remember a placed called "Onion Town" from when I was growing up in Dutchess County. I thought my parents made it up, I guess not. I do not think I have ever seen it but when I recall my parents' description, I cannot help but think of the movie Deliverance. Sounds like that might not be far off.

Why would a person or persons think they could go into a community with a video camera and think they could ridicule the local population without repercussions? If you're looking for trouble, you will find it and they consequences may be more than you thought about.
