There is no one in my family who doesn't like sweet tea! I also grew up on it and still drink it all day long

I guess if I try hard enough I can imagine someone not liking good sweet tea...Nahhh!!!, I just can't picture it. Not liking sweet tea to me is like someone who hates being given large amounts of money or having good luck. It doesn't make sense. But to each his own!!

I feel the same way about black licorice. But have enough sense to realize that lots of people don't like it.

That is an excellent point. The homogenization of America has brought Northern influences to the South and vice versa.

A mall in suburban Syracuse has pretty much the same stores as a mall in suburban Nashville, and exits along interstates up North have pretty much the same fast food joints as exits along interstates in the South. Our radio stations play pretty much the same music, we watch the same TV shows and see the same movies.

Southern-bred NASCAR is taking over the rest of the country in much the same way that Southerners embraced Northern-bred baseball, basketball and goodness knows football.

So if a Yankee is tired of seeing Southern cultural influences up North, well, get over it. It's happened before (Coke, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, and Dr. Pepper all came from the South, for example) and will happen again.

It would appear that this author believes that the North superior to the South. Do you agree that he is correct?
It would also appear that this author is an arrogant, elitist, crybaby who is just so sure that he knows more than everyone else and cannot get over the fact that most AMERICANS reject Northeastern Marxism and cultural relativism and wants to silence and marginalize those who don't see things his way - as a true leftist always does.

Marxism isn't all that popular in the northeast either. Sounds like you've got your own misperceptions of what goes on up there.

What do you mean? My entire family of middle-class New Yorkers are Marxists. If we weren't, they'd have run us out of town! Back in grammar school, they had us memorize The Communist Manifesto deface American flags! There's actually a statue of Lenin right on the spot in Lower Manhattan where George Washington was sworn in as the first President. Ah, home....

Sweet tea is good, but I thought the Euros put milk in their tea. To me the idea of mixing a dairy product with tea is digusting, it's like putting strawberry jam on a suasage biscut. Disgusting! Oh yeah, the article was funny.

Nice one. I always get a kick out of the misperceptions of new yorkers, some of the most conservative curmudgeons in my family were from the Bronx.
