I personally consider Maryland to be Mid-Atlantic and a diverse mixture of all regional cultures (as well as international cultures). Having said that, I personally identify myself as Northern as do most of my friends since childhood. I like the South and I always enjoy visiting it but I don't really have much of a concrete cultural or personality affiliation with the place. Which probably explains that if I were to move outside of the DMV (DC and the affiliated MD and VA suburbs), I would prefer to live in either Philly, Hoboken in NJ, New Haven in CT, NYC (either Queens or Brooklyn) or Providence in RI....Or go to the Midwest for Chicago or Minneapolis....Or head Out West to Seattle, Denver, San Diego, LA, Oakland, or Sacramento.

If I were to ever live in the South, I'd be cool with Charlottesville, Atlanta, Savannah, Durham, Chapel Hill, Macon, Athens, Tybee Island, or St. Simon's Island. Other than that, I'm sticking to the East Coast, Upper Midwest, or the West.

The only thing southern about Maryland are all the countless slave sounding boring idiots that repeat that numb brain sounding "ma'am and sir" all day and every day of their boring simple homely lives. They're southern wanna be's but actually Mid Atlantic-ers if you're keeping it regionally real.

Atleast real southerners (states in the actual southern part of the country) have a kind of sexy sounding accent when they say it. Even their creepy cheesy sounding accent is annoying. Good thing it's dying out like the rest of the american accents (another story)

They probably wish they were southern. Okie dokie or Homely is more the word.

They're stuck somewhere in between just like the state is..... on the eastside of the country.

Please explain (if you are able to):

Slave-sounding?

numb brain sounding?

boring simple homely lives?

Are these people employed in the hospitality
industry? It is part of their job if so.

Are you American? Your prose is rather stilted
as if it is a second language.

Except for the reference to the "Northern Scum" in the state song, I suppose.

I think the "Yankee" thing gets overblown on City-Data. The anecdote usually goes something like this.

I grew up in the wealthy suburbs of Connecticut (ed note: that really means he grew up barely middle class in suburban Knoxville or something) and ventured down to Alabama once for a research project on the South. After hearing my northern educated accent, one of the locals proceeded to call me a "Damn Yankee."

I've never heard anyone in the South call anyone else a "Yankee." But that's just my experience.

FWIW, when I went off to college, my family said I was going to be "on that True Blue Yankee tip."
