@trooper: I suppose there are some small hick towns with small populations but there's nothing wrong with that. It just always bothers me when i see something stupid like on 'family guy' even in the early episodes where they go into the deep south or any other similar group in a tv show goes into the deep south. Let me put it this way southerners as a whole aren't the most populous, cosmopolitan, snobby as hell group of people. Some like country music but not everybody down in the south has a southern accent and not everybody down there is a hick either. I've lived in many places in the south and besides education being worse, being a bit more rural and more on the republican side of things and not too happy about gays they never seemed to be overly ridiculous about it. I'd never see the hillbillies tv shows always exaggerate and i'm actually offended when most imply every southerner has a southern accent. Most don't as i remember it. I lived in south carolina for 5 years, was born in alabama and even lived from 4-6 or 7 (years old) in alabama. I know my memory of alabama is tenuous at best but there are smart people in every state. Trust me i know this and even know some online people that live in such states which are very intelligent. I am almost as offended by people's low opinions of southerners as i am of people's opinions of americans. It's still intolerance and it's still just as bad as saying ill of somebody for being black.
