Starting by Thinking About Things Like That

"I grew up in a dirty little steel town called Steubenville, in Eastern Ohio. [...] Drinking was a hobby in that little town, and as in a lot of small towns, everyone new everyone else's business. Women had not quite yet been liberated. Husbands ruled the house, women cleaned it, and any strong female opinion was often rewarded with a fat lip. But no one thought much about that."
-- From Traci Lords: Underneath It All by Traci Lords, Harper Collins, New York, 2003, pg. 1.
