It’s Always Warmer in the South

During this Presidential election year, we are being bombarded with the results of polls, surveys, and group interviews.

So, in that spirit of questioning, I decided to find the answer to a question that is, at least to me, much more interesting than what stand should we take on relations with Liechtenstein. My query: Are people in the South really more friendly than those in the North?

We’ll begin by establishing my credentials to conduct such a survey. I feel I have much credence as a judge of things Northern since I lived for 55 years in New Jersey (albeit it was in the southern, not the northern, part of the state), 4 years just outside of Philadelphia while I attended Villanova University, and 4-and-a-half years in an extended staycation in Washington, D.C.

I haven’t lived as long in the South. In fact, as I write this article, I have only been a resident of the Atlanta Perimeter for 52 days, 11 hours, and 22 minutes (and 5 of those days were spent on a Rock Legends Cruise with Greg Allman in the Atlantic Ocean).
