As I drove back from a softball game Monday night in McBee, I entered the community of Primus, which introduces itself to you with a simple road sign bearing the name. It may as well have said, “Welcome to Stankville USA, pinch your nose closed.”

For some reason, my senses were not assaulted when I drove through the area going to McBee, but I got a double-barreled blast of it coming back.
