Re: Emily

Zem, it sometimes seems to me that among the Eastern  
establishment types the only politically correct jokes are
about rednecks and blondes.  You can't even hint at a
Polish, Italian, Jewish or Irish joke.  "Little moron" jokes -
are you old enough to remember those - are even more
incorrect.  I guess I admire Dolly Parton who says "I don't
mind dumb blonde jokes because I know I'm not dumb - 
and I'm not blonde, either." So even though certain people
who know I grew up in the area make a point of calling
Panama City, Florida, the redneck riviera, I just try to 
ignore it.

I agree with you entirely, Auralie.  It just seems that everybody in a group 
does get tarred with the same brush. Guess that's why I try to do everything 
I can to debunk the Southern redneck stereotype.
