Iowa Brilliance

Remember Gertrude Stein?  "a rose is a rose is a rose"?  Sure you do.  Here is what she had to say about Iowans:  "You are brilliant and subtle if you come from Iowa and really strange and you live as you live and you are always very well taken care of if you come from Iowa."  So there.  Although this may be a little difficult to remember as a comeback when anyone is dissing Iowa.  Somehow we'll make it work.
