26. You can get as much out of a trip to Western Kansas as Laos. If you try.

Jun 22nd 2009 11:42AM Nice one, Darren. By the way, what's up with the image compression? It looks like you took this with some kind of special lens...

Where else can you do that?

Jun 8th 2009 4:37PM Hey Jeff, thanks for the comment, I definitely appreciate the feedback. I do have to disagree with your explanation regarding the origin of the phrase "second city." As I understand it, the phrase was coined in an article written by New York writer A.J. Liebling:
