"Maybe it would be fun to hide out in Des Moines for a few years while the coasts get gutted, but it's hard to believe that ReadyMade, which grew up on Bay Area inspiration won't shrivel up and die out there."
A comment from AT co-founder Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan. Way to alienate a reader-base. Now, maybe living in Des Moines (practically), I take a extra offense to his statement. However, the midwest as a whole gets a bad rap as being a cultural wasteland, and those who live here and those who have taken the time here, know better. It would be nice if those coastal snobs would take the time to broader their horizons.
