Nobody outside of the mid-atlantic area knows what any of this stuff is.

Most people down here don't even know what the MD flag looks like, that MD is known for crabs or even that MD has it's own type of crab that is different from the crab legs they get at the local buffet.

Coonism and Stephen fetchin' type behavior is a characteristic of Maryland.

Part I - California. Yeah, CA has that large varied Pacific Asia thing to all new levels. Nowhere in the western world can compete on that level. But for outside of CA, it seems that NY/NY and DC/MD/VA and Chicago could be closer 2nd tier leaving far behind everyone else after them though.

Part II - Maryland vs Pennsylvania. That's tough, sounds more like Baltimore vs Philadelphia that you are stressing. From what I know of PA as a state, they have the largest elderly population outside of FL...people just don't leave PA when they get old. Driving around PA, I also feel that there is step back in time of yesteryear throughout most of the State. Feels so different from the rest of the country. I'm a big fan of PA, but it seems that your experience in South Philly is what you are stressing, but speaking in terms of all of PA is mixed and groovy and all of MD isn't and stressed. Seems like should be Baltimore vs South Philly rather than 'Maryland' being the problem one. But, I would agree with you on the South Philly over Baltimore.

Part III - which brings me to Philly vs Baltimore. I recently spent some time in both cities trying to get a feel for them. I INSTANTLY loved Philadelphia and more I explored, the more impressed and just plain comfortable I felt with it. I really wanted to love Baltimore - both rowhome cities with character. I INSTANTLY did not like Baltimore at all. Absolutely hated it. I could go into more details...but they did have significantly different feels to them. I can completely understand your preference for Philly over Baltimore.

Part IV - Growing up experinces vs being adult. I think pretty much everyone everywhere has issues with where they grew up and 'racial issues'. I think teens and such are just that way...whereas adults really appreciate and admire the beauty that comes from mixed kids, adulthood, etc. Seems like often the beautiful people in high school become ugly in adulthood, and the uglies in high school become beautiful in adulthood. I also fondly recall moving to NYC as an adult and thinking that racially NYC was pretty damn cool and progressive and everything else. However, my NYC friends who were born and raised in NYC thought it was the most racist divided city they had ever known. I think it basically come down to adulthood impressions of a place versus teenager impressions of a place.


I'm in PA a bit , and don't see anything "groovy" about it, but depressing comes to mind. Crossing over from PA to MD out near DCL , and then I see signs again on the small roads; its much more posh and manicured then PA. I noticed too, that we have a lot of PA people in our state looking for something called jobs.

Maryland and Virginia have one of the best employment rates, one of the best minimum wage amounts, excellent scenery, very safe areas.

A lot of people move to Maryland from different states and countries.

Tiger Beer is on a spaceship. I can't figure out where he came up with the BS he came up with.
I'll bet he came down 95 from Philly, somehow amazingly didn't notice the difference, and road right into a meh area of Baltimore and made some bizarre assumption about the entire area. Lazy, some of us have discussed it on here before.
Let him drive up 83 from northern Baltimore county, and tell us how much nicer it is once in PA........
And he needs to look up more recent data. I guess to him states with high senior populations are nicer? Do you think well off seniors aren't paying for places in choice areas in California, or Florida. The not so well off may stay in PA......
Anyway a recent Map...



Pretty funny, I worked with a goofy (This guy was a goofball!) and he laughingly called Maryland a dump, but the moron came down here for not one, but two jobs.

Maryland is known for murder, rape, crime, drugs, gangstalking, and domestic terrorists.
Itís the worst freaking state in the us, and should be nuked with a zero tolerance policy; full collateral.

The people are the absolute lowest common donominater.

Eclectic, confusing, and sometimes hard to understand. Maryland is a whirlpool of 'types'.
