    Thanks for confirming my thoughts of you by responding with the typical fall back position of an uninformed Yankee liberal with apparently limited exposure to the world outside of Kansas.

    Name calling in an attempt to support an indefensible statement is the sign of a limited intellect so taught Mrs. Land (my fourth grade teacher in a small rural Kansas school) in 1957.

      I've traveled all over the world you fool. That is how I know how reprehensible Mississippi is.

    Have you driven through San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Trenton, Chicago, etc. lately? In 1982 I took my family to Philadelphia to see the liberty bell and other historical sites, we drove through an area of the city that was worse than anything I have seen in any city in the South.

    Poverty and "third world country" sites can be found in every State of the Union.

      Terrible areas of lots of places. I'm saying Mississippi casts a wider net than most.

      All I am saying is you need to "broaden the width of your net" before you post "I wouldn't voluntatily (sp) go back to Mississippi." Drawing such an opinion based on a 30 year old childhood memory is suspect at best.

    I have no desire to ever return to Patterson, NJ. Took a wrong exit off the parkway at about midnight in 2001. On the street were literal dumpster fires with people warming around them. Others were stealing stereos and TVs, or at least moving them in shopping carts. Someone threw a slurpy at our car as we drove through and got back on the parkway. I checked the news. No info, just a standard weeknight in Patterson.

          Try Scenic, South Dakota! Have you seen “The Hills Have Eyes”? Yeah! Same place except we didn’t see any mutants. We only saw one old lady in a rocking chair and someone had brought the road closed sign back to the dirt road next to the gas pump and trailer house. The road closed sign was literally laying on the ground in front of this and the three boarded up shops. No cars and no buildings for 30 miles on the way there.
