Substandard snark or patent parochialism?

Sometimes I think Narcissus and I are one and the same person.  Anyway, because this blogging exercise is new to me, I have taken to following what others write about this blog.  I recently authored a short post entitled “May the Fourth be with you.”  The ABA Journal picked it up, and wrote favorably about it. In response, “Pushkin” wrote: “Did Star Wars just get to Nebraska?”

If Pushkin intended his remark to be snark, it was a C- effort.  If, on the other hand, Pushkin intended to make clear that judges and lawyers from out this way are rubes, well, then, Pushkin is a parochial little prick.  Have I been plain enough?
