I moved to Atlanta this May to spend the summer interning at the Georgia Innocence Project, and was surprised both at how much I loved living here, and at how shocked my friends and family were about how much I loved it. There is an idea, generally present in the North, that the South is ignorant, backwards, culturally (and sometimes literally) inbred, politically tyrannical, and just plain bad. If Northerners feel disturbed by the direction American government is taking, we will blame the way Southerners vote; if we are alarmed at the enduring presence of systemic racism in our country, we will blame the way Southerners think. It's very convenient.The Dukes of Hazzard follows the adventures of "The Duke Boys," cousins Bo Duke (John Schneider) and Luke Duke (Tom Wopat), who live on a family farm in fictional Hazzard County, Georgia, with their attractive female cousin Daisy (Catherine Bach) and their wise old Uncle Jesse (Denver Pyle). The Duke boys race around in their customized 1969 Dodge Charger stock car, dubbed (The) General Lee, evading crooked and corrupt county commissioner Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke)... Bo and Luke had previously been sentenced to probation for illegal transportation of moonshine; their Uncle Jesse made a plea bargain with the U.S. Government to refrain from distilling moonshine in exchange. As a result, Bo and Luke are on probation and not allowed to carry firearms — instead, they often use compound bows, sometimes with arrows tipped with dynamite — or to leave Hazzard County unless they get probation permission from their probation officer which is Boss Hogg, although the exact details of their probation terms vary from episode to episode. Sometimes it is implied that they would be jailed for merely crossing the county line; on other occasions, it is shown that they may leave Hazzard, as long as they are back within a certain time limit.
