I am shocked there's actually a town in Mississippi called Sherman.

I had to re-read your post. I thought I had mis-read it.

Or, in special cases, he may just be a member of a baseball team.

But I would not use such a word to describe you. Someone who becomes "sad" or "discouraged" in this situation could be more accurately described as supercilious.
Nonsense

I am interested in the Deep South rural lifestyle.
There are many nice places in MS.

Rural, and warm weather, without high city costs, try George county.

So the Cafe du Monde moved from New Orleans?

The word Yankee ain't no mild insult, it's the worst thing you could ever, ever call someone (other than a lying yellow dog Yankee, which is reserved for the worst of the worst).

I've lived in Mississippi most of my life, so I've come to accept it for what it is. There are times when I get the itch to move elsewhere, but there's also things about the state that makes it hard to pull away from. The cost of living is low, the food is great, and the people are are very friendly. Some of the cons are being too hot in the summer, the job opportunities are not the greatest, and not progressive enough. Not necessarily progressive in a political ideology, but leadership tend not to want to move the state forward.

P.S. Football is a very big plus! You don't have to declare allegiance to Ole Miss or MSU like you do in Alabama with Alabama and Auburn, but it is intense. The UM/MSU rivalry doesn't do much for me since I'm a USM and Florida Gators fan, but I respect it for what it is.

I always love the DEEP South, I guess is in my DNA as my father's family on his mother's side had settled I the are of the Delta of the Mighty Mississippi when the French vessels landed in the area that is now New Orleans.

Dad LOVED ALABAMA, LOUISIANA and The Capitol City of Mississippi, I have there a couple of times and fell in LOVE with everything there including its very poor but LOVELY PEOPLE.

I even bought a Foreclosed house at Auction on the computer, I know that SOUTH JACKSON is CRIME RIDDEN but so was THE BRONX, HARLEM, BROOKLYN, HARRISBURG ( Philadelphia ) and CAMDEN NJ.


Bad places can improve, at least prices are the LOWEST ANYWHERE, I am a PONEER WOMAN, not afraid of abandoned homes. someone has to start going there and bring back the neighborhood !


I hope I can meet someone from Jackson as I know NOBODY THERE !

It's a great place. Has not been ruined yet, by "multiculturalism" or a complete yankee takeover.


The place still has a feeling and culture - at least for awhile.
