The same group of elderly white men meet every morning at 6 a.m. at Fubbler’s Cove diner on Front Street in Orrick, Missouri. And pretty much every day they discuss the usual stuff: the weather, the crops, etc.
On a recent warm spring day, I dropped in to ask for their opinions on how they think national politics affects them.
“You probably don’t want to hear,” said one, who asked that I not use his name.
These guys disagree all the time – about everything from the new mayor to the food. But it doesn’t get in the way of their daily coffee and conversation.
