Yeah. I agree with you on the fact that people are so different between relatively little area between their regions of living. I've lived all over this country and even outside of this country. Funnily enough, I find LA the most to my liking than anywhere else that I have lived. I loved Oregon too. I would live there again without hesitation. So, I've been able to state without problem that I could live on the west coast. I do not *ever* want to live on the south east part of the country again (although, I do like Tennessee :). I can't really say if I'd like to live in the northeast. I have visited twice. I drove up to NY for 9/11. I also did some training in DC. I liked DC. But I can hardly make a decent decision on staying in a place for a short amount of time.

Your comments are very well understood by me, however, in regard to what you are saying about the differences of people in areas with little difference of area between them -- It cracks me up how true this is. I have to say, however, I find that drivers in Los Angeles are *the best* drivers per capita than anywhere else I've lived. North Carolina drivers are the worst. And Utah drivers are in the middle. These are just my findings based on where I've lived. I've lived in about 8 or 9 states and about eight or ten (averaged) places in each of those states and have spent significant amount of driving time in at least half of the country as a whole including several cross-country trips.

I love LA for its diversity and the friendship of strangers. A lot of folks in NC will stab you in the back (in my experience more than those in Los Angeles) without hesitation and without any reason. I found they were the most politically driven people I've ever had the experience to live around. I absolutely hate North Carolina and its weather and animal-sized bugs (I must say that there are some nice people in the smaller nether-regions of that state but I still prefer the concrete jungle -- but I hated Charlotte). Anyhoo, I need to get home now. :)

I do find our perspectives on this issue stimulating and interesting, though.
