Geography counts, too much

In Washington state politics, geography counts. For what exactly we aren’t sure, but our origins and current residence have meaning. Your home provides a snapshot of your experience, which affects your point of view and potentially your judgment, and provides others a means to judge you.

We all think this way, whether we admit it or not. We in Eastern Washington can sense it. There are times when our views and opinions have less weight in the statewide marketplace of ideas, we suspect because we have chosen to live beyond smelling distance of Puget Sound, or more important, Elliott Bay. It’s very subtle, usually, but we with the Eastern Washington chips on our shoulders sometimes get the feeling that those people over there look at us differently, as slightly less worthy.
