I’ve just got back from a road trip to Marrowbone, KY (!!). Mostly I was there for a friend’s wedding. Here’s the church where the wedding took place. Pretty, but truly in the middle of nowhere. And, yes, I did find time to pay another visit to the Creation Museum, even though it is in an entirely different part of the state. How could I not? They’ve opened the Dinosaur Den and the Petting Zoo since the last time I was there!
The largest towns near Marrowbone are Burkesville and Tompkinsville, which have a few thousand people between them. My motel room had the Burkesville/Tompkinsville yellow pages, which looked more like a magazine than any phone book I have ever seen. Just out of curiosity, I looked up “Churches.” Twenty-four options to choose from. Alas, I didn’t think to look for synagogues.
And under bookstores? One entry. And that was for the Verizon Directory Store. Somehow I don’t think you can pick up The Origin of Species there.
