Q: Dad, do you think people are different in the South?
A: Absolutely. I saw a story the other day that points out there is no such magazine as "Northern Living." Hopefully, you've been given a Southern perspective on things and have learned Southern manners. I don't care where you are in the world, remember those and you will do OK.
