    "You might be from Marion County if..."

    I never imagined that simple phrase would spark so much interest, but it did last week when I started a group on Facebook called simply that, "You might be from Marion County if..." (Not to be confused with Jeff Foxworthy's "You might be a redneck if..." one-liners. Some might say those two phrases are one in the same, but I disagree... Somewhat.)
