John M. Ford is a genius.

Jessa Crispin is from Kansas. What's more, she mentions Salina, the town where I was born. The one with a giant elevator. For most of my life, I read the comics from every Sunday issue of the Salina Journal. They would be waiting in a pile every time I visited my Grandma's house.

There's an issue of Sandman where a character references Salina. I think Neil Gaiman looked at a map of the midwest and picked up some place names that sounded good for the line, but it sure did resonate.
