you must forgive me for a moment, I shall drop my calm in relation to those who are generalizing about certain states:

Fuck Off!

There are crazily scary places in every region, especially in the US. In fact, the worst I have ever encountered have been in those enlightened states of Illinois, California, Arizona (especially northern Az, the state was settled by Mormons, after all), and New York. There are crazies all over. If you will pause to reflect, it took the Dover trial to overturn this effort in a state not named Louisiana. So, cease piling on.
It's funny, but I get the whole "backwards Louisianan/Southerner" thing a lot, and then the Columbia graduate from Connecticut who mostly plays that card has to leave class early on Wednesday to go to church. I'd say this is a little more widespread.


I apologize for the hasty, semi-retarded tone to this post, but I am fed up with this regional bigotry on a "clear thinking oasis". It makes me sick and embarrassed, thinking that I direct everyone I can to this site, only to have them point to threads like this that turn them off to an otherwise great experience. It is a mote in many of your eyes that you should look to.
