Tolbert came here partly because he likes the South better than California

My wife was born in Michigan and lived in MiAmi for 16 years. It took her awhile to get used to cashiers at the grocery store engaging her in polite conversation. I travel a sh*t ton and pretty much love every city and town I visit. My "north" smack talk is just smack talk. Even the people of Montreal blew away the stereotype of being assholes. I was born and raised in Wilmington and lived in Florida (northern and southern), I have no desire to live anywhere other than the Charlotte area.

Unless all these damned Yankees continue to swarm.

I have.

Not as bad as down here, but not exactly comfortable either. The temp gets fairly high.

Winter is the time you really don't want to be in Ohio though (yikes).

As to the prior discussions, I'll echo that you can find Saints* and jerks pretty much everywhere.

My experience spending a lot of time in Louisville is that I will take Summer in the South and not think twice about it. IMO it's not even close to the misery index of the midwest in the Summer.

I spent a year in the Middle East, a week in Guam, and some time in the philippines during the summer. After those places, summers just about anywhere in the US is easy to deal with.
