My Thoughts Upon Driving to Mississippi

At least once, everyone should be driving backroads to Mississippi, listening to the blues. If there is anything more satisfying than tooling around old town squares and then crossing into ancient swamps. What's funny about Oxford is that even though it posits itself as unique among towns because it gave the world Faulkner, it couldn't be any more like any other small town in the middle of nowhere. There's a McDonald's and a bustling town square with a courthouse in the middle. How an we be so different when we all tool around the same town square? Oh, rural folks, you are all my neighbors!
