Stereotype

I taught high school English and journalism for one year on the Crow Indian reservation in Southeast Montana. Since the nearest apartment I could find was thirty-five miles away in Hardin, I joined a carpool with three other teachers, one a young woman from Idaho...

"Your father a potato farmer?" I joke.

Complete silence as she glances at me askance from behind the wheel.

I infer her father really is a potato farmer.
