As the list's former redneck (well, on the surface...deeper down, once a
redneck, always a redneck...) I have to agree with Thomas here that the
only way you're going to have significant problems is if you act superior
to the Southerners. Oh. I *really* suggest you don't call anyone a
redneck while you still sound like a NH boy. Thom is right on the money
with that one.
