Rural America.

Kevin Kling's NPR piece entitled "Daddyland" is worth a listen. His impressionistic piece about farm life from the perspective of someone whose parents grew up on a farm, while he grew up in a city, nails a big piece of what is going on in rural America today.

His brief observation that the uncertainty of rural life is a big part of what drives the religious devotion of rural America is particularly apt.
