By Iowa standards, Des Moines is a Mecca of cosmopolitanism, a dynamic hub of wealth and education, where people wear three-piece suits and dark socks, often simultaneously. I come from Des Moines. Somebody had to. Hardly anyone leaves. This is because Des Moines is the most powerful hypnotic known to man.

Mr Piper was the nearest possible human equivalent to Fred Flintstone, but less charming.
