Robert Barnes ponders in the WaPo:
How would the Supreme Court play in Peoria? And would some of the justices need a map to find it?During oral argument in an international child custody case, Justice Sotomayor made a reference to Peoria as the prototypical small city far from urban centers such as her home of New York. Then she caught herself and noted she didn't mean to denigrate Peoria. Justice Breyer (of SF/Boston) took up Peoria and asked about custody being decided under Iowa law. Well, it's one of those corn-growing states that starts with "I." Maybe that counts as "close enough" for people who think the coasts are where it's at, and everything else is "flyover country."
