: : : : This is a fun test. I was 73 percent Dixie. The score would have been higher but I've been corrupted by TV.

: : : : (Notice the test doesn't say Yankee or Reb. I guess Rebel is a bad word these days.)

: : : As a Brit, I scored 55% 'barely in the Dixie category'!!

: : 71 into the Yankee side.
: : Lets go Mets!

: Goofy test. Maybe I travel too much. But living two years in Atlanta in the early '70s could not possibly have had the impact to make me "58% Dixie." Y'all gotta know I was born in NY and live in Chicago, with stops in Pittsburgh and Boston. 99% Yankee by geography, honey chile.

It was probably all that "sweet tea" you drank in Atlanta.
