    That Maine one makes me hungry.
    Somehow, I just saw this.

    Honestly, I mostly don't like Utah. I only agreed to live here when faced with the choice of that, or divorce. Now, I am going on 17 years here, and it's grown on me a little - but only a little. I love how my kids have 60 cousins to grow up with here (all pretty good kids). I love that it's a pretty good place to raise a family, if you steer clear of certain pitfalls. I find myself constantly driving home the concept of acceptance with my kids - especially as it involves skin color and sexual orientation. They need to understand that the world isn't just comprised of white, heterosexual Mormons with large families. And the specific neighborhood we live in is about as diverse as it gets here - probably only about 30% Mormon, in our LDS ward boundaries (a ward is the loose equivalent of a small Catholic parish).

    But I consider myself a Coloradan, through and through.

    South Dakota and North Dakota: Black Hills, Mt. Rushmore or Fargo.

    Sounds about right. The whole, "Oh ya, you betcha!" stuff isn't that true. Sure, some people -- but that is far more Northern Minnesotan than anything.

    Well obviously you should be associating meth with Missouri.

    My wife and I stayed at Hot Springs Village last week and they have seven absolutely beautiful golf courses there. The private club Diamante is rated as one of the best in the U.S. The Village has to be one of the best gated communities anywhere. I also play at the Texarkana Country Club where the main street is Texas on one side and Arkansas on the other .......... a liberal's worst nightmare.

    Haha. Yeah, Arkansas has a pretty bad rap.

    Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Kentucky seem to have somewhat unfair reputations as well.

    I swear, if you go to a Walmart in a small town anywhere in the USA, you'll see plenty of morbidly obese people on self-propelled shopping carts with missing teeth. They just have a unique kind of beligerence down south.

    That's insane. You guys get cross winds that are equivalent to tropical storm force winds on a daily basis.

    Nah, huge melting pot. Of course there are racists here, just like anywhere. But those old school days are gone.
