USA.  North Carolina.  Not South Carolina.  Remember that.

Redhat is in North Carolina.  <joke> I always wonder if those 
mascara-wearing Cure-listening long-haired Linux skater punks ever get 
into trouble out in those Redneck bars.  There's poofter places around 
but it's kind of hard to avoid trouble indefinitely.

I learned you need to wear big shit-kicking boots and they ignore you.  
If you're openly "superior", trouble always follows.  You got klansmen, 
constructions, crackheads, iterant workers, and marines.

SC is worse.  Tennessee is worse still.  And North Florida they'll leave 
your ass in the swamp.

Yeah, it was purely a misreading on what he said, no need to pile on 
*that* guy.  But blame or not if a real showstopper gets out in future, 
it's not good!
