Day after day I read y'alls posts bashing the South...and yet you accuse me of insensitivity? As Westerner alluded to, seems like the least is to refrain from biting the hand that feeds you, so to speak. Maybe that is too much to ask, I suppose...but Down Here we just call it Good Manners.

An analogy is that someone else takes you into their home when the chips are down, do all they can to help....yet all you can do is tell them how the traditions of the home and the decor, sucks...Geez.

I have NOTHING at all against northerners who move to the South for ANY reason. My own kids are "half-yankee" and one of my best friends is a flaming New York liberal, fer gawds sake. Some of the fiercest partisans of the Sunbelt/South I know are yankees who moved here and, even if not totally assimilating, at least do not make an every-day point to tell us how much better it was where they came from. They are some of the best neighbors and friends I have...

So, bottom line is, before you go calling someone "insensitive" maybe you oughta look in the metaphorical mirror...reckon..?
Ummm, you understand don't you that your beloved South will cease to exist if these yankees (who you like but who I can't stand) continue to come down here don't you?

This right here is what I am getting sick and tired of. You are a Northeasterner who is bashing the South, yet you live in Va Beach. Tell me why you aren't in the Northeast right now?

Actually, the ACC is the classier conference with nicer fans.
