Flyover Country- Who Knew?

Reading the WSJ, I was startled to encounter two old friends in an unusual context. The relevant passage:

 I called Russsell, who is in California and recovering from a shoulder operation ( casting lead- core steelhead lines in deep water for 60 years has got  to have SOME effect!) and he was as bemused as I was.

  1. Willard Garvey was a businessman and philanthropist from Wichita, Kansas. He was pretty well known throughout the midwest but not so much elsewhere. He once was asked why he chose to stay in Wichita, and he reportedly said, "Well, I've been to New York and I've been to Los Angeles, and Wichita is as far away as I could get from both of them."
