Nah and again no thanks... plenty of DC residents on here have already noted that they dont identify as Southerners and over the years that we've had this discussion not one has agreed with you. Why dont you stick to the Baltimoreans being a southern thing and let DC folks decide for DC.

NC is definitely not Mid-Atlantic....nothing of the sort and why I like living here. No rat race or pretentious sense of importance.

Geographically and history already decided for DC. Since DC is south of Baltimore, then you don't have an argument.

Well said, thanks Mutiny. Perhaps I am a bit more invested in the topic than what's considered normal, but that's only because it's a subject that I care about and want to discuss.

No one's forcing you to respond, let alone care at all. If you are so bothered by it, maybe find something else to do with your time? Or another topic?

The lines straddles somewhere in VA... I notice traceable differences once I pass Woodbridge and definitely think I'm in the South once I hit Lynchburg/Roanoke/Petersburg...

That's merely a statement of fact. The implications of the question I asked go a bit deeper though.

And that's why this message board exists. You don't have to explain yourself at all.
