But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

Have you ever lived in Appalachia?

Use the definition below, taken from the website of the Appalachian Regional Commission.

By that broad definition I myself have been lived there 2 and a half years and live there now. There are more prosperous areas in the region.

"In 1960, 219 counties in the 13-state Appalachian Region were considered economically distressed. Now that list has been cut in half, to 108 counties, but these are "hard-core" pockets of poverty, seemingly impervious to all efforts at improving their lot."

I got the definition I posted from the ARC site today, not in 1960.

You're mixing things up. We were discussing the region and poverty and you just defined the region prehaps giving some the impression that all the counties you listed as being poverty stricken. The site odesn't have the most up to date info anyway.

"The 1990 Census data show that metropolitan counties in northern and southern Appalachia had poverty rates slightly below the national average of 13.1 percent. In rural areas of northern and southern Appalachia, the poverty rate was 16 percent. In central rural Appalachia the poverty rate was nearly 27 percent. New poverty rate data from the 2000 census has just been released by the U.S. Census Bureau for the nation, states, and counties; more complete data is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2002, which will permit a regionwide analysis of changes in poverty rates."

"Employment Trends

Appalachia's civilian labor force grew to more than 12.2 million in 2001, with increases registered in most counties, including the most economically distressed. The Region's three-year unemployment rate fell from 5.3 percent in the 1996–98 period to 4.6 percent in the 1998–2000 period but is still high compared with the national 1998–2000 rate of 4.2 percent. In addition, the Region's unemployment rate understates the lack of job availability because of the high number of discouraged workers who are not counted in the labor force. Labor force participation rates in Appalachia for 1998 were 61.6 percent, compared with 67.7 percent for the nation as a whole, and estimates of underemployment stood at 10 percent for Appalachia, compared with 8.6 percent for the nation.

Educational Trends

The Region's educational attainment levels have improved sharply since 1960. In 1990, for the first time, the share of people aged 18 to 24 with 12 or more years of schooling was slightly higher in Appalachia (77 percent) than in the U.S. (76 percent). However, considerable educational deficits remain, particularly in central Appalachia, where the average high school completion rate for this age group is only 68 percent. Reflecting the educational shortcomings of past decades, only 68.4 percent of Appalachian adults aged 25 years and older are high school graduates, compared with 75.2 percent for the United States. New educational attainment data from the 2000 census has just been released by the U.S. Census Bureau for the nation, states, and counties; more complete data is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2002, which will permit a region-wide analysis of changes in educational attainment."

Actually, Alienlovechild, I think the point AJ is trying to make is according to that list there are many more VJ'ers from the Appalachian area than we thought. Something you stated in the other thread regarding this topic was there weren't any people from that area here on VJ. When in all reality, there are plenty of us on here.

Wood County, West Virginia.

Mountaineers, ftw. Even though I'm not in the same area as you we're called Mountaineers as well. Whoop, whoop!!! :D

Before I raised the issue, no one from the region claimed they were from the area nor commented as "insiders". I was trying to get a somebody to counter the ABC show from their own perspective. I wasn't born here but now live in the piedmont and I was trying to clarify that entire region isn't as bad as the TV show (which I didn't see) probably makes it out to be.
