Darth Pariah

I was born and raised in Goshen. Schizophrenic city. Prides itself on its Mennonites and Amish, but if you get caught at night on the north side you'll likely get mugged. However, the city, just like the state as a whole, is about as right-wing Republican as the rest of the state.

My wife is from Brazil. Even worse, much smaller town where if you weren't born there you will never belong, period and it's close enough to Terre Haute that you can smell 'that smell' that the Haute is known for.
