And, there are desert and mountain communities, too, that are not pretentious at all, even if they are filled with wealthy second home owners. Some people may be a little ostentatious, but certainly not all. Then, there are some superficial cities, but I agree that it's an unfair generalization to lump everything south of Santa Barbara as the land of plastic people and shallow values.

It's the same as people who generalize all New Yorkers to be rude and impatient, when that's actually a very small population who are that nasty. Just as the nasty New Yorker is not a proper characterization of all the people who live in NYC, the vapid beach bum/skate rat of SoCal is not indicative of everyone who lives there.
Hmmm I dont know, everytime I think of south California, Nancy Palocy comes to my mind.

Well that is a positive thought.

Some do find Nancy Pelosi to be a beautiful, well-mannered, intelligent, firm but yet sweet woman, if I may say so myself!

She originally hails from Baltimore, MD and now makes her home in the Bay Area, not SoCal. SoCal is Duncan Hunter territory.

New Yorkers: Direct - never passive-aggressive. They let you know where you stand and are willing to speak up/out. They've witnessed all kinds of life and are not naive. They have a big heart and are very loyal. They tend to be impatient because of the crowds who get in their way - they don't suffer fools well and will let you know it. They ridicule with affection. Their sense of humor is hyperbolic.

I speak for myself here as a native New Yorker.

Oh, I admire a lot of democrats.
But Nancy with her speech of unit and in the same sentence saying bad things about the other party...
Is like me saying lets all be friends, it doesnt matter that you guys are the evil of this country and the problem of this country. We still have to unit, even if your views are stupid or un-educated.
Oh, I am really happy you voted republican
