In its June issue, Down East magazine has an article entitled, "Choosing Maine: Town-by-Town Tour of Maine." Though it is more accurately a county-by-county tour of Maine, eh, so far, so good. That is, until I scanned down to Cumberland County.
Expecting at least a mention of how Westbrook don't stink no more, I was a little surprised the city garnered little more than a mention as part of the cluster that constitutes Maine's "most populous county." Hell, even Standish got a little shout out as a town to investigate if one is planning a move to Maine.
Ah, the irony of an ultra-provincial blogger criticizing an ultra-provincial mag for not being, well, provincial enough.
