It could also have to do with the How long have you lived in Alabama to only just now notice that Alabama is "more diverse than people would think." The county I was born and raised in has as many different dialects as it has gas stations, as many nationalities that you could possibly think of, and probably as many names for a "pile-on" as there are ethnic groups. And this all occurs in one county in a state of over 60 counties, so unless this is an isolated case, which I seriously doubt, please in the furture dont slam a state that, although far from perfect, is no worse than any other state in the union. Thanks, Todd N. Nims
