But IS it? Historically, from the Spanish-American War through today's 'war on terror', MORE young men....and women...FROM THE SOUTH die in combat than all other areas of the USA combined. Businesses in the South historically reveive FEWER incentives, tax breaks, etc than businesses in other parts of the USA. Levels of poverty are HIGHER in the South than in other parts of the USA...IF you don't count the various Indian reservations. Do I need to go on? Sure...the SHOOTING has stopped, but the death of our citizens and businesses continues.......

I agree, dog. It was especially bad when my parents were growing up. Athens had been ravaged and it took over 100 years to even half-way recover.
