I didn't say it was southern through and through, but there could be a hint of southernness here and there.

Naw, I don't think there is even an incy wincy ounce of Southern Culture to be found in El Paso. Any Southern culture in El Paso, probably isn't Southern, and is more indicative of the rest of the Southwest and is mistaken for being "Southern". Or, whatevers Southern in El Paso, was probably imported.

The Rio Grande Valley? Brownsville? Laredo? Del Rio? Nothing Southern about those places other than they are in Southern Texas. That's me though. I will say this about El Paso. It is far more Southwestern than Southeastern or what we identify with as Southern.

No argument from me here. And I always forget about extreme South Texas.
