It's good someone is realizing that Lebanon and the UV are so over themselves it is hilarious. This is a place in the middle of nowhere, and the town is basically a wanna be gentrified mill town. Lebanon is full of corrupt. money grubbing landlords that will jack your rent up to live in a slipping off its foundation apartment building from 1978 because it's..."Lebanon." There are so many poor and suffering people here but along with that comes the Puritan ethic of "we will help you but we will gossip about you behind your back" because there is a severe lack of jobs, affordable housing, and civility. There is a handful of wealthier transplants who spill over from the various "liberal" towns and they set themselves up as better than the locals or anyone not employed at Dartmouth College or Hospital. One snob said to me, "You know, those people who shop at...Walmart..." when insulting people because she had a rich husband working at Dartmouth. People go around here looking very busy and self satisfied as they brag about the exciting venues like the Opera House. There are definitely a lot of do gooders in this area, and you will be sure to hear about them while you go about your day trying to get a store job at Price Chopper or a maid job in a motel. There are too many educated people for the few jobs opening requiring a degree and you need to be "PC" or someone the politically correct set embraces to be successful here. Small town minds rule the UV outer towns.
