    Sometimes you don't know how perfect a place is... until you've left it. That’s what Chuck Palahniuk discovered. He grew up in a part of southeastern Washington, called the Tri-Cities—after the trio of cities clustered along the Columbia River: Richland, Pasco and Kennewick. It's in this area that, in the 1940s, the federal government bought up a huge piece of land to make plutonium for nuclear bombs. And the Tri-Cities are still shaped by the odd hybrid of farming the soils of the region-- and plutonium production. Every episode of State of the Re:Union, we ask residents to write a letter to the place they live. Chuck, who’s the author of Fight Club, and several other books, writes that, with time even things you never appreciated become oddly… perfect.
