Maryland we get inches of snow and don't go into a huge panic over an inch. Our cities resembles the northeast. Also, a lot of influence is mixed from the north and south.

I have spent most of my life living in the South - the Deep South in particular. I've lived in Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, NC, SC, VA, TN, AR and now Texas. So basically the only southern states I HAVEN'T live in are MS and FL and I've spent plenty of time in those as well.

Texas is not "deep south" but it is DEFINITELY southern.

You have to do a better job of keeping up; things are changing fast on this front.

Why do you say that? Is it the hispanics and other transplants making it less so? If so Atlanta is the same .Lots of transplants in Atlanta.

And like the other thread the south east part of Texas feel more southern.Where the west part of Texas and north part of Texas more mid west feel.

Fair enough. So what do -- other than the superficial physical terrain -- no different than Tennessee has more akin with southern Illinois, Indiana, etc, -- does north and west Texas have in common historically/culturally with Kansas and Nebraska, than with Tennessee and Arkansas, or even Mississippi?

In that same article it said 74% of Kentucky residents had voted for a gay marriage ban in 2004. Glad to hear change may be on the way soon anyways. I never claimed to be able to keep up with every news snippet from the South or any other region. I just share my opinion as I get the information.

Nonetheless, thanks for sharing this!

No one element is "making Texas less southern." And it's not "less southern" just because it's not "deep South." It's still southern as heck - just not mint juleps on the veranda southern. It's a Texas sort of southern.
