we southerners tend to get pretty touchy whenever someone from up north presents an inaccurate or degrading stereotype of the south.
that’s why i found this quote in an ajc article about a potential development project in dekalb county a bit ironic:
“Mr. Garvin is a very smooth New York talker,” said Paul Jennings, a former state legislator. “Think what it’ll be like 10 years from now if Sembler builds what it wants to build. It’ll be like the Bronx.”
