Harper’s published three letters to the editor in response to Wallace’s State Fair piece: the aforementioned Midwestern apologia; a note on the hypocrisy of the magazine which, like the vendors in the Expo. Building, also hocked “chintzola” like rotary nose hair clippers; and a corrective on the origins and joys of clogging from a 70-year-old woman in Port Townsend, Washington.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
