Eye of the Beholder

Why would someone equate long time residence in Ketchikan with living in a vacuum? There are people living in N.Y.C. and L.A. who never make it out of their 'hood'. There are people who travel extensively but remain provincial. Living on an island does not isolate us. It's only geography.
