    Howard doesn't often talk about the South or Southerners, but when he does, it is mostly negative stuff.

    As far as family goes, I'm half Southern and half Northern. My mom is from Minnesota and my dad is from Texas (where people, particularly from the eastern part, identify more with Dixie than the West). I've lived up up north and I've lived down south and, for the most part, the Northerners had very negative feelings towards the South.

    Backward, bigoted, dumb, etc.

    The ironic part for me is my Northern side of the family had a member who'd joined the Klan whereas the Texas side (they were Catholic, so that may have been part of it) was pro-Civil Rights though they weren't particularly fond of the blacks, they thought less of Kluxers.

    What are some of your perceptions?

    Here is what I think most of you think of Southerners:

    One of the most passive-aggressive things to say. . . . . ooof, when I hear that, my hands fistulate.

    You been looking at my family photo album again? Top photo is me when I still had all my teeth. Middle photo is of my two brothers "Junior" and "Cooter" fixing up our new chicken coop. Last photo is of my parents just before they passed away. I told them to put better straps on that single wide, damn tornado took them both and their dogs too. Found 2 of the dogs wandering over in the next county and pa's hat was high up in the muscadine vine.

    To be fair, we've got plenty of rednecks & hillbillies up here too. There's a town in the northwest corner of CT called Winsted which is also known as "Winbred". Oh, and there's northern VT/NH and most of Maine too. :ujj:
