And representatives of Georgia signed the Declaration of Independence. Guess what the Brits call Americans from Georgia?

I'm originally from California, rc. I consider Yankees to be northeasterners only. As a Californian, I certainly don't have the same atttitudes toward the South as the my Boston buddy does. He's pretty much denotes every Yankee stereotype, good and bad. People from the West Coast, Mid West, Upper Mid West, etc., have their own things going on.

California flirted with secession, but ultimately decided to stay in the Union. When the news of the secession hit my home town in southern California, they took down the US flag and burned it in the town square.

Yes they have helped, but I believe Atlanta is reaching a point where the city will be comfortable with its own identify. Why try to be another city when we have enough originality to be a city that haven't existed yet. In culture, style, food, etc.

I kind of like Decatur. It doesn't seem all that much different from the way I remember it growing up.
