Is it the southern charm? The sophistication? The earthiness?

What makes your city/state unique, special, and desirable? Is it Dallas' glamour? Seattle's laid-back attitude? New York's fast pace?

Tell me how you are different than all the rest....

Kentucky has a general laid-back attitude and Kentuckians have a very strong sense of belonging and home. Sometimes, I think too much. But, I believe it gives us a strong cultural identity.

[quote=phillyhomelessguy;2963570] flick you off on a daily basis.

It's flip you off, not flick you off. What, are people on you so you start flicking them?

Kentucky is one of my favorite places. The people there are select.

I have to agree with Jcm. I also feel like alot of Kentuckians have a fierce loyalty to the state not to mention they tend to be friendly and generous.

I once read a kids' book about Kentucky that said just this. lol. I'm sure a lot of is comes from the fact that Kentuckians STAY in Kentucky and put down roots. There's a lot of proud heritage there. But then I look at my city of St. Louis and while people have those same roots...people are way more ashamed of their hometown. I wonder what it is that gives Kentuckians such pride.....

Here in Omaha, we have a sense of community, on a city-sized scale. If people need something done for the better of the city, we get the people, the money, and we get it done. And as with most mid-western cities, we have a large amount of kind people. It's like a little hometown on the prarie with skyscrapers and and a population of just under a million. Perfect in my opinion.

I think it is just engrained in us.
