You thought I was joking when I said that I live in Outer Podunk. Au contraire. There really is -- or was -- a Podunk, Michigan. This is the old Podunk School, the last intact building. Once upon a time Podunk also had a Free Methodist church and a dancehall. The dancehall was quite the hot time in the old town, I've been told -- a 35-cent cover charge; hamburgers for a dime; BYOB moonshine; knife fights; the occasional airborne body flung out the door. As you can see from this photo, the neighborhood has calmed down quite a bit.
