Indian food does rock, doesn't it! The Indian restaurants in Lincoln were not great, but for us they provided a nice break from Kearney fare--burgers, etc. The resistance to stop signs in Kearney ("we don't need the gov'ment intrudin' on our lives") would be funny if it were not so tragic: every year a bicyclist or two falls prey to the absence of traffic signs. Beth and I are now in central Pennsylvania; it's still a bit rural for my taste, but I love my job, and Selinsgrove is closer to my native city of New York than Kearney is. I need to run to a meeting now, but please do keep in touch!
Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 10,600+ good friends and discussion groups.
Among the groups, may I suggest you try the busy group “ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion.....” with its 160 commonsense topics whose discussions rebuff religious nonsense. You will be welcome.

Hi, Empathy--welcome to Atheist Nexus. I spent two years in Kearney, Nebraska, as a professor of English at UNK, so I'm familiar with your neck of the woods. My wife and I visited Lincoln frequently, as Lincoln has a quite a few things that Kearney does not: Indian restaurants, independent bookstores, an independent movie theater, stop signs, electricity--that sort of thing.
