And Your CRAZY AS HELL if you think for a minute that Maryland is not a Southern State and it further proves the point of non-Southerners viewing most southerners as uneducated especially when it comes to history, geography, and race/culture relations.........

Colorado here. Technically you could split Colorado between the West and the Midwest. The mountains are in the West and the farmland plains are in the Midwest. Technically speaking, one could say that Denver lies in the Midwest, because Denver lies on the Great Plains. However, Denver is always placed in the West because of the mountain views.

I've also wondered why Oklahoma and Texas are placed as Southwestern states. The Southwest should be Arizona, New Mexico, Southern Nevada, Southern Utah, Southwestern Colorado, Southern California, and Southwestern Texas. I suppose the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma could be in the Southwest too, but honestly, I think most of Texas and Oklahoma is way too green to be "Southwestern."

Of course, my opinion on regions is ENTIRELY geographical, as you can tell.

How right you are on the above bolded part! My fiance is also a Colorado native and she thinks exactly like you do as concerns Colorado. And Texas too. That is, it is bascially Southern and very definitely NOT part of the West she knows! LOL I agree.

Baltimore was once southern, but since the Great Migration from the south, it is less southern??

I would think Baltimore should be more southern now than it was than, right?? We are NOT southern.
