Hmm... I need to build on to my "southern charm statement" by somehow incorporating this...

Yup. Actually I believe I misquoted. Should have read what a "quarter of a million .. " and think it came from John Shelton Reed.

Isn't it funny that sometimes people worry about coming to the Atlanta area and finding a "Deliverance" type setting? If they had only watched the movie they'd realize how silly that whole notion is.

Here's a hint for those that didn't catch the above: The men being hunted were businessmen from Atlanta.

P.S.

You won't find anything remotely like Deliverance in the northern reaches of Georgia. It is actually quite nice and visually beautiful.

Exactly. It was a crucial detail of the whole story.

Think of it this way....those "Jersey Shore" people are a miniscule fraction of the population in NJ (unfortunately). A lot of people who have no experience with anyone from that area might have a jaded perception of what New Jersey people are like. So you can apply that to perceptions some people have of Southerners....Really this is a nice place with nice people, most of whom practice good oral hygeine and also there are plenty of good orthodontists.

Living in North Fulton county I find it to be very diverse where anyone can fit in.

Isn't that Milton county now? Or do you actually mean the current N. fulton, that used to be the northern middle half of Fulton?
