Howdy from NoVA.

More on "what's the South," and the difference between NoVa and RoVa.

For once, the Washington Post is playing catch-up with me (!).  On Nov 9th I posted about the difference between NoVa and RoVA.  And today, Nov 16th, the paper ran a piece on the same topic.  You'd think the Second Civil War is about to break out.  This time, the paper talked to people in other parts of the state.  All I can say is, Richmond sure likes that tax revenue.  Here's the link.

There are lots of places I haven't visited yet, but I'm working on my list!

Haha, that is a very interesting post, Mr. Duncan.  I think that as a whole, Arkansas is more Southern in culture than Texas though, because Texas kind of has its own culture by itself.  Texas is pretty much independant culturally, with influences from the South, southwest, and even Mexico.  Fine state by the way, I have a lot of family down there.

Mr. Duncan, your family history sounds similar to mine.  My family came from North Carolina after the war to set up a missionary( my great, great, great grandfather became a preacher after he was surrendered by General Lee) and I believe other parts of my family came earlier from Mississippi and Tennessee, and if I am not mistaken Virginia.  But anyway, they came because they had lost everything in their native states after the War.

regards,

Casey
