  • I happen to love the south - I think I was a southern belle in a past life. I think all of the issues you mentioned you stem from a higher density of lower income people. That said, I think southerners are the most charming people in our country!

  • TALuke really? I lived up north for a good 4 years and every time I turned around I was told I should feel guilty for being southern and I should apologize for my ancestors. If ya'll would stop trying to rewin it for the North then maybe we'd stop trying to refight it for the South.
