Mayberry Is A ‘Real’ Ideal | The American Conservative

Rod Drher, one of my favorite conservatives, has a few kind words for Mayberry. As you know, I have been a skeptic. Rod and I come from different worlds. He is from small town Louisiana and I am from Mobile, Ala. I came from a city. Both places were “Catholic friendly,” but if Rod or I traveled to Mississippi (or perhaps some places in Arkansas), we might be in danger. Merely living in a small town does not automatically endue one with the virtues of kindness and good manners. If idealizing Mayberry causes one to strive toward a more humane and peaceful world, I am all for it. Here is what Rod had to say.
