travel could be tough in the nineteenth century, this account from 1886:
And, to deal with all of the horrible things at once, it was in Clarksville that we heard of a gentle Athenian, who was boarding in the north-eastern section of the State, and being called by a coloured servant early in the morning, she ventured to lie a little longer; whereupon she received a peremptory order to get up, as "the missis wants one of the sheets for a tablecloth."
and politics can be tough in the twenty-first century ---
