While we are on the subject of Louisiana, Shreveport is often accused of "being in Texas". 10 miles from the border definitely makes Texas a big influence as the city looks to Texas for a lot of economic and entertainment ops. Dallas and Houston both influence Shreveport more so than New Orleans and Baton Rouge or Atlanta for that matter. We have always considered ourselves south central or southwest, not southeast. Only in the past few years have I really started hearing southeast and mainly I think the word has been used to replace "deep south" and the evil connotations it brings forth. That's good.

Whereas we don't fit the criteria of "southwest" today; we once were considered just that. The "old southwest"
is this part of the country. Before Texas, NM, Az, Cali were states. Matter of fact, until 1819 the western third of Louisiana was owned by Mexico. It was not part of the Lousiaina purchase.

Shreveport/NW Louisiana IMO is alot more like East Texas than it is Louisiana. Likewise IMO Houston and the Golden triangle are similar to Louisiana in some aspects.

That is a load of crap. Knoxville and Cincinnati are absolutely nothing alike, starting with the accent, culture, architecture, etc. Cincinnati is a Midwestern city. It may have a few Southern influences, but it has the most in common with Indianapolis and St. Louis. It is only like Louisville in that it is on the Ohio River.

I don't think Chicago is like either. It has its own identity. But I agree, the differences between Chicago and downstate are immense.

Vancouver, WA is more Oregon, but that is a border town. The larger picture is most of S.W. Washington is more like Oregon as well. Portland media can be seen and heard throughout this part of the State.
