Taking Exception

It looks like a lot of Pennsylvanians are rejecting James Carville’s old tome about Pennsylvania being Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Alabama in the middle.  Having visited pretty much the entirety of the state, rural Pennsylvania is pretty much like Pennsylvania.  Frankly, it’s always looked a lot more like upstate New York than any of the cotton states.  If Carville meant that culturally, well, there’s plenty of the supposed ignorance urban dwellers like to attribute to rural people right here in the Philadelphia area.  Bitter can attest to that.

    As a Philadelphia resident, I can confirm that. Hell, read my blog. I say ignorant things all the time!
