A Hilarious Survey of Just How Dumb People Can Be Robert E. Milliken is just your average American guy; who became sick and tired of so many stupid people in the world. You kw: the tailgaters, the public-doorway-blockers, the dramatically lacking in common sense. Stupid in Montana as America chronicles the infinite variety of modern-American absurdity, senselessness and idiocy. From his perch in rural Montana, Milliken observes the decline of above-average (and even just average) social intelligence with a sometimes wry, sometimes savage but always comical outlook, whether it's on the road, on the lake, or in the video store (stupid people, Milliken finds, are everywhere). But this field guide to dupes is more than just an expression of disgust; it also identifies in large part what's wrong with our society; t so much a lack of book learning as the weakening of reason as Americans pursue the rat race at any cost. Through it all, Milliken, a lifelong fisherman and outdoorsman, weaves a more hopeful narrative of the beauty and tranquility offered through nature; a kind of outdoor public education that's free for the taking, if we dare to pay attention to it.
