Despite years of Washington swallowing up our fair state, Northern Virginia is NOT Northeastern.

Its Southern lite. But its a very transient area that has people from all over. Thats why its not likely to be included as typically "southern". Same can be said for Hampton Roads area and many parts of North Carolina.

40 years ago, it was no different than the rest of Virginia.

And as for the grits, go to any Waffle House and you can get as much grits as you want. Maybe you should know a little more about what your talking about before you post it...
Oh and as far as grits you can get them almost any sit down restaurant that serves breakfast.... at least in my part of town. Oh, and don't forget the biscuits and gravy!!!!

I had never had it anywhere else. So after reading all these posts on this and similar threads, I'm confused. How could she give us sweet tea when she couldn't possibly be a Southerner since she was a) Catholic; b) German extraction; c) a native of Maryland? (She also made the greatest fried chicken I've ever had. She firied it in bacon grease!)

I too have exercised restraint with the sweet tea thing. I think sweet tea is being given to much leverage as a distinctive southern beverage. For goodness sakes, you can get sweet tea damn near anywhere! And if you cant, just go to wal mart and buy some.

Check Louisville slugger on page 52, can't argue with the stats he put up. My common knowledge agrees with the data links he found. Just because you don't want to be considered part of the south doesn't mean you're not part of it. You can twist things and make caveats all you want. The DFW area is at least 50% non southern, but it's base heritage still has to be considered southern. Migration patterns have lended a more Midwestern feel to the city in the modern age, and it's always had a more western bent, Texas has always kind of been it's own creation. But saying Kentucky, Texas or West Virginia isn't southern just isn't right.

And where is austin listed as the 16th largest metro? It's 37th by the lastest census estimates and the 8th largest city in the south.

agree with all, rep point coming your way.

while southern florida has been invaded by old northerners the north part of florida is still the old south

northern virginia has still got it's parts but slowly losing out there
