This is an old clipping from the hometown newspaper in the Southern Indiana town where I was born and raised.  I found this clipping in my mother's recipe box after her death.  Talk about being politically incorrect!  Poor Farm Road was the official name of a street (it has since been changed).  I remember going to the Poor Farm, the actual name of the place, to visit someone my dad knew.  It was a big old house and had people sitting on the porch and in the yard in chairs.  No one looked down on the people or made disparaging remarks about them.

Can you imagine naming an institution or a road that now?
