Suburban Atlanta resident Conor Sen, writing in The Atlantic, neatly sums up the policy debate regarding Southern struggles with this week's snowstorm:

Which leads into the blame game. Republicans want to blame government (a Democrat thing) or Atlanta (definitely a Democrat thing). Democrats want to blame the region’s dependence on cars (a Republican thing), the state government (Republicans), and many of the transplants from more liberal, urban places feel the same way you might about white, rural, southern drivers. All of this is true to some extent but none of it is helpful.
