Atlanta. If you take the whole population of Georgia, many live near Atlanta. It also has more Midwestern and Eastern transplants. Parts of it are Deep South, but not most like the others.

And, as always, he'll reappear in a couple of months with a different screenname and it'll start all over again.

I didn't read the responses - but what the hell??

I feel like every other thread now is some south/north debate. What's with the sudden obsession? The war ended almost 150 years ago.

Deep South is more of a way of life than a geographic location. Some parts of VA are deep south, while some areas of LA are not.

Ever been to NC? Why Bojangles would collapse if there were no sweet tea in NC.

Most of South Carolina outside the vacation areas are very deep south.

i may consider south carolina, florida, south georgia, alabama, lousiana, and south texas to be deep south because of the proximity. the rest are just south. but south is south.
wouldn't southern new mexico, arizona and california also be deep south, even if its different flavors of traditions and ideals for the same reason? just curious.

Deep South is more cultural than geographical...it's seen as the 'most' Southern area culturally, more so the 'heart of Dixie' states; technically Louisiana, Miss, Ala and Georgia are the deep south states because they are most purely southern; without any Southwestern or Atlantic influence.
