While one is constantly bombarded by the divisions and contempt felt by each side towards the other in this country, within a particular neighborhood or city, those divisions can be largely absent. I live in such a place. While I read about the great divide, I don’t feel it. My neighbors and I are in total agreement. There is of course the occasional naysayer, but they are so few in this sheltered world of mine that we just laugh them off. This, for better or for worse, is my America.
I live in the safe confines of a world where pretty much everyone with whom I come into contact is rooting against the Lakers.
