How could the Pueblo Chieftain publish an upbeat article on the Arkansas Valley town of Swink without including the fact that people from there (some of them) refer to themselves as "Swinkies"?

Maybe you did not hang around the bar formerly called the Log Cabin (which was in a metal building) with the pheasant hunters.

I liked the Log Cabin because they didn't care if my dog came in.
