60 Percent Dixie -- Ridiculous
By Mike Rappaport

I took the word usage quiz, and it turned out I am 60 percent Dixie. Sorry, that is absurd. I spent 26 years in the New York area, then lived 5 years around DC, and have spent the last 13 in California. Now, my father did go to college in Alabama (travelling there from his home on the Lower East Side), but you would have never known it, except when college football was on.
