Thread Name: Folklore: Where is Dixie
Subject: RE: Folklore: Where is Dixie
Aside from it's geographic boundaries, Dixie is in the heart.
To most who feel that way it's not about racism or bigotry, it's about simpler times in the way that "Happy Days" was also about simpler times. There is always nostalgia for people to look back in trying times (like these) to yesteryear and forget that those times had trials and tribulations of their own.
