First Eric Kreig described us as "failed northern cities," and now Wayne Slusser calls our homes a garbage dump. Looks like the love has gone out of our relationship, doesn't it?

Can't these guys find better things to do than launch mean-spirited attacks on their neighbors?

Go ahead and revel in your perceived superiority. We will manage without you, and cherish our homes in the north, and respect our neighbors in the south, because we believe no one is a minority.
