This may seem a strange question to ask, but I've always been somewhat curious. What does everyone think of Kansas? What first comes to mind? What stereotypes are there in the rest of the US, the EU, and elsewhere in the world? Does everyone see Kansas as a place of backward hicks that should be nuked to oblivion? A place where the only recognized church is the Westboro Baptist Church? A somewhat magical place based on the "fairy tale" that involves Dorothy? (When I was in Russia 10 years ago I found that most Russians know of Kansas through the Wizard of Oz, which is told there as a fairy tale.)

Being from Kansas I would be interested to know what others think.

When I think of Kansas, at the moment, I think of Scott Roeder and his fans. I think of farming. I think of Republicans. Thats about it, though.

How is everyone (who still knows of our existence)?

I'm doing okay. It's been a trying winter and spring personally, but I'm okay.

i think that for a lot of us, the wonderful wizard of oz is what kansas is most famous for :D
other than that, i'd associate it with a lot of farming and flat land (i dont know why but i imagine it having very flat geography!).

This morning I went to one of the roughest funerals I've ever attended. My adopted brothers' godparents' daughter passed away last Saturday from a sudden heart attack. It was a shock to all who knew her, since she had no prior health problems. She left behind an eight year old daughter and (I believe) four year old son. I went with the rest of my family in support of her family; I never met her, but I know her parents somewhat.

I knew it would be unlike other funerals I've been to, since all others were for those who lived long and full lives. But I wasn't prepared for what the actual experience. Her daughter completely fell apart during the processional of the casket, bawling repeatedly "Mommy!" and "I can't do this!" as her father, who was also in complete tears, helped her out. Those who spoke during the service broke down momentarily as well, and during the recessional the entire family looked to be a wreck, especially her parents.

Seeing all that was extremely difficult and extremely moving. I'm still a good bit unsettled by it.
