Coffee Hour: The American South

Author:Author unknown, Issue: June 1998, Topic: Coffee hour

The monthly coffee hour at the Tsukuba Information Center will feature Mr. Stuart Albert, who originally hails from Robbins, North Carolina, a magical land where everybody and their dog has a gun, where iced tea comes in gallon jugs and is properly sweetened, and where biscuits and gravy are the staple carbohydrates. He now works for the Ibaraki International Association in Mito, a town noticebly lacking in all three of the previous mentioned items.

As such, Mr. Albert would like to talk a while about his rural homeland in the Southern Part of Heaven, what it's like when your closest neighbor lives a half-mile away, why Florida is technically part of the North, and why deer hunting season is often considered school holiday. We will explore the world of going mudding along the power lines in a Jeep, of Friday night football games, of the big-government-stay-out-of-my-business-and-hurry-up-with-my-farm-subsidy-check mindset, and we'll learn why Southerners on the whole are the most relaxed, friendliest and well-fed people in America.

Come and have a listen. Y'all might just learn something! The program begins at 2 pm on Wednesday, June 24 on the second floor of the Information Center (next to Nova Hall), and lasts until 4 pm. You are, of course, free to come and go as you please.
