An airport is often your first impression of a foreign culture, and it can tell you a lot about this people's priorities. In this story the foreign place I visited was Springfield Missouri.

Hmmm, "visited" implies I had a choice. Let me rephrase that.

My work sent me to Springfield Missouri a while ago. It isn't as "southern" as I expected. Everyone was pretty nice and friendly, to top it off most had all their teeth, and claimed to have uncles that weren't their fathers. I didn't really have any lasting memories from the trip except for one. Just after getting off the plane I was greeted with this.

There are priorities for you.

That is 2 Ls
