Okay. So now that the native southern culture has been fully extinguished from every nook and cranny of Baltimore with no discernible traces whatsoever, the two cities are identical? Did Philadelphians replace the native Baltimoreans?

Depends if that is true or not.

Perhaps you will note that I was talking about the silly thing that someone made up about Amtrak making up the terms Northeast and Southeast. The fact that the census bureau has been using the term Northeast since 1880 simply proves that is wrong.
Well Ace, schools used to teach geography with the east coast divided into 3 distinct regions. No one thought that it was 2. Go talk to your grandparents.

They had road trips. It's been discussed openly about what happened when they played in Philadelphia for decades.

Thats nice.

So do you now agree that the comment that someone made up about Amtrak being responsible for the terms Northeast and Southeast is wrong?

I said that I never heard northeast applied as a region until after Amtrak slapped the term onto the rail corridor. I'm not going to say that that is wrong because what I said is the truth.
