Across the pond for a look at the American South

How Barack Obama can win over poor whites provides a taste into how a Brit views the American South's poorest of the poor as relates to our odd politics. With the reporter relying on help from Joe Bageant, author of Deer Hunting with Jesus: Dispatches from America's Class War and native of Winchester, Virgina, an entertaining and yet depressing piece is delivered. There's a nice photo essay as well from Nina Berman provided with the article. A new book goes on the Amazon Wish List! I really, really want this one. John Gunn
