I realize this isn't your area of expertise, but I might as well try: I've been working on a script. A friend of mine is sure there are agencies out there hesitant to take on writers from rural, "unmarketable" areas such as Iowa, where we currently reside. So much so that he is sending his own script to a friend in another state, just to have an address from Colorado on the envelope. I find it hard to believe that any agency that wants to make money would throw out any good work, but then again, maybe I just have a rural way of thinking. And if having 'Colorado' would get my work opened, read and decided on faster, I'm all for it.
Your friend is a nitwit.
