Sounds like there is or was one American way and tens or even hundreds of millions of un-American Americans have deviated from that over time

To be "All-American", one simply has to enjoy apple pie? Or is there something else to it?

There are plenty of deliciously depraved folks in all these apple pie-lovin' locales. They just have their benders & sex parties on the low (see: Ted Haggard), while still keeping up appearances on Sunday morning.

However, all states have a certain percentage of the population that is foreign born. Some states have a higher percentage than others. The states that have a very low percentage generally have little job growth, isolation, etc.

I view Utah/Salt Lake City more in this light, perhaps less sex parties. But it's all about keeping up appearances and being there Sunday morning.

Sorry getting off subject

LOL...not so much, though people are friendlier here. The, ahem, "lower classes" tend to be pretty much the same in everything but physical appearance.
