For whatever it's worth, it's a well known fact that Southern accents vary from region to region state to state within the South. There is no one Southern accent. The accent of parts of Alabama is not the same accent used in coastal North Carolina. Loretta Lynn does not have the same accent as someone from Mississippi, yet she certainly has a Southern accent.

No professional sports teams, no critically acclaimed orchestras, zoos, or museums, all it has is the Kentucky Derby, and college and minor league sports. I'm not at all jealous of Louisville and would never want to live there EVER.
But it DOES have critically acclaimed orchestras, zoos, arts, museums, food and drink (which CRUSHES that in your city) etc. Its all in your head that it doesn't. No one wants you to live in Louisville.

You cannot argue nor reason with this guy. It's like nothing I have ever seen.

The same could be set about you. You not only are uncompromising in your stance but you drag down other cities and make up facts.

Lmao no it doesn't. Louisvilles orchestra isn't in the top twenty in the country. It's museums and botanical gardens aren't listed in any top thirty list I've ever seen.Neither is its zoo. Dining I don't know about so I won't comment. You are living in a delusional world.

I've never met anyone in person who cared about the quality of an orchestra in a city. Or a zoo. Or botanical gardens.

Most lower class and uncultured individuals usually don't.

Ammenities are irrelevant in a discussion of being more Southern or Midwestern. Both regions have exciting and boring cities. For this discussion we're comparing Louisville to larger metros like Indy or Cincinnati in terms of accents etc, not orchestras or zoos.

Hey U, you with the ever changing name, pretty sure we've been down this same road before, but some of us who have been in the south longer than you've been alive do see some southern traits in St Louis. Crazee Cat Lady hit the nail on the head in noting that it too is a mix of midwestern and southern, just as Louisville is. It's made this thread quite interesting to see two of you fighting the same argument from opposite sides. Kinda like watching somebody argue with themselves in a mirror, lmao.

I do. As do many of my friends and acquaintances. Evidently you've never met any of us!
