    When I move, it's going to be either South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, or Mississippi. I HATE winter!

    I am often asked Why do Southerners still care about the Civil War? Because it is unique in the American experience. Defeat was total, surrender unconditional and the land still occupied.

    That part of Metry used to be a big hog farm at one time, so it's only fitting that you sweat like a pig there in the summertime.
    Its still known as Hogs Alley

    I worked the '96 Olympics in Atlanta.
    I congratulate the Organizing Committee for convincing the IOC to hold the Olympics in Atlanta in spite of the unbearable sweaty, humid conditions.

    How is living where you can pass a good time suicidal?

    Come on cher! Laissez les bon temps roulez!

    Besides, no one else knows how to fix gator properly.

    My dad was stationed in Louisiana when he was in the airforce. He says that hell has nothing on Louisiana, lol!

    (WARNING! Tongue planted firmly in cheek!)

    Hot just like that in any part of the south.

    Mississippi. Thank goodness for Mississippi! Keeps the rest of the south from being worst on a lot of lists.

    Bama's the worst though, and not just because it's hotter than a habanero pepper in the summertime. If you've ever been through eastern Georgia, the reason all the trees lean to the west is simple: Alabama sucks. I mean, really, they named their football team after a nasty algal bloom, but they use a white elephant as their mascot?

    Georgia isn't much better, Atlanta is home to the Failclowns football franchise. Who else could turn a 28-3 lead in the third quarter of the Superbowl . . . into a 34 - 28 loss in just 15 minutes? Now THAT IS efficiency! Also, there is good reason that the truck drivers all call it "Hot Lanta". Got nothing to do with southern belles.

    Florida has the Gulf of Mexico on the western shore and the Atlantic on the east . . . kinda like broiling instead of baking.

    The Carolinas get pretty hot too. Haven't spent much time there, but my dad's people all came to this country through the Carolinas. They left to move to Mississippi. What does that say?

    Texas has hot, scorpions, tarantulas, armadillos, and (not sure which is worse) both Lonestar Beer Commercials and the Dallas Cowgirls football franchise . . . owned by an Arkie named Jerry Jones.

    Did I insult everyone yet

    Hey, it's all in good fun. Not even close to some of the things I've heard about Louisiana. Maybe it says something that this half-bleed cajun doesn't go back no more. Now, where's my paper bag with the eye holes cut out?
