On the Road to Effington

Ben Folds
One of my students, Paul Durante, clued me in to the fact that there’s a song about my hometown of Effingham written by Ben Folds. Though vulgar, it’s not even particularly insulting, and quite pretty, I think.
There’s even a reference to “Normal,” as in the famous Illinois headline: “Normal Man Marries Oblong Woman.”
