    Tyler Hansbrough's hometown. That's all I know about this place.
  2. Once spent the night there on a cross-country move a few years back. It was at night during a huge storm with a series of tornadoes hitting all around. When I got to the hotel (either a Super 8 or Motel 6 -- trying to keep expenses down), the woman at the desk said a tornado had touched down not too far from the highway I had been on.
    When I was first driving into the area and heard about the storm I started looking for a place to take cover. I saw a concrete bunker of a bar off to the side of the highway and pulled into the lot, which was filled with pickup trucks, many with gun racks. A huge Confederate flag hung above the door to the windowless bar. Despite the weather, I pulled back onto the road and took my chances elsewhere.
    That's all I got.

    That's interesting, considering everyone I grew up with considered Missouri to be "up north."

    KC and StL are part of Missouri. The rest, for the most part, is in Missourah.

    Due South of St. Louis, near that little appendage that hangs down into Arkansas.

    West-northwest of New Madrid, so if that fault zone finally lets go you'll be among the first to know about it.

    Are there any more Hansbrough brothers/sisters?

    The best part of living in Poplar Bluff: You're not too far from Lambert's Cafe, home of throwed rolls.
