Everybody in Louisiana knows how to play the trumpet, wrestle alligators, and cook gumbo and beignets. And they love LSU and the Saints.

Serious meth problems and drug trafficking perpetuated by Breaking Bad stereotypes. Yeah, it's true.

Middle aged divorced woman burnt out on her career in New York, LA, or Dallas moves to Santa Fe, changes her name to Willow, takes up yoga, Buddhist meditation classes, opens her own pottery studio, and adorns herself in turquoise jewelry. Yeah, that's the Land of Enchantment alright .

Uptight, pretentious businessmen and women, people who work in the government, CIA, wealthy black communities, and the ghetto side.

The nerdy stereotypes is more what I hear about Silicon Valley.

I had a high school ceramics who used to live out in New Mexico for a while, and she made pottery out there. She was a genuine hippie, though.

Damn right we do my business would struggle if this was not the case!

Honestly I can't think of another stereotype of Zonies off the top of my head. Hopefully Trump's speech did not make any more negative stereotypes of us Zonies. Someone can bounce a Zonie stereotype off of me, and I'll say if it's true or not!

Wait, are you talking about Tucson?

If it helps, Santa Fe sounds like Sedona...

Hmmm... all those things are true too!

It's a different kind of nerdiness from Silicon Valley... more like political nerds, or what we in DC call wonks!
