Yeah, that's the skull-pounding-on-desk part; so, so many urbanites either came from rural areas or are the immediate descendants of people who did. I'm one; Dad grew up on a very rural farm and moved to the city as a young man the first chance he got.

-- Steve thinks this is part of a very old story of rural people claiming to be morally superior to urbanites, which dates back at least to the Roman Republic. It wasn't true then, and still isn't true now.

It dates back at least to the Biblical prophets.
