DURST: Go Packers!

The Green Bay Packers are our new America's Team. Part of the reason is because the former holders of that title, the Dallas Cowboys, have morphed before our very eyes into South America's team. These guys are such thugs, junkie bikers are reluctant to party with them."Who's in charge of security?" The other part of the reason is the Packers are literally owned by the small Wisconsin town and this has woven a whole 1930's fairy tale quality around it. We're talking Civic Pride so far off the Richter scale it threatens sensitive seismological readings in subterranean Japanese caves.If Jimmy Stewart isn't mayor, he should be, and married to June Allyson to boot. So what does Hollywood try to do in the face of such unspoiled innocence? You got it; they are engaging in chiropractic nightmares attempting to figure out a way to market this midwestern purity to make a buck off of it. "I got it, Vince Lombardi goes to Vegas with a briefcase full of heroin!"Don't let them fool you: when you visit, not everything will be in sepia tones. They have bars and gangs and the normal American share of the byproducts of capitalism, just on a smaller scale. And yes, they have the Packers, and that's about it, buddy. Of course they're all Packer fans. It's either that or smelt fishing. In December. Think about it.Will Durst is all in favor of unsophisticated guilelessness.
