To appear normal, coming from a place like Westport, you truly have to watch your words and you have to be on guard, because the producers are looking to promote that story. An offhand comment is way too easily twisted. And sometimes it's hard to see the town promoted in that way. An outsider's view inevitably misses some of the little things that make the place what it is.
I know that it was a wakeup call for me when I ended up on the receiving end of some of the stereotypes, especially when they seemed so inaccurate.
