Where Is Appalachia?

I like it overall, I’d quibble a little in PA at the borders. Adams and York County should be included, imo. Not only did both vote 2–1 for Trump, but my Dad is from York and he’s Papaw to my kids. Lehigh county is borderline, while physically its Appalachia, its part of the NY-NJ metro statistical area due to heavy commuting patterns and has four 4yr colleges and 4 2yr colleges and Clinton narrowly carried the county.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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