There is a funky new blog called Newburyport According to X, by “Mr. X nbpt.” Mr. X appears to be a no-nonsense, long time resident of Newburyport, Massachusetts. Very refreshing.
And “Mr. X nbpt” has a blog entry called Karp-etbaggers. Mr. X quotes the Wikipedia definition of carpetbagger: “Since 1900 the term has also been used to describe outsiders attempting to gain political office or economic advantage, especially in areas (thematically or geographically) to which they previously had no connection.”
Take a gander.
