yeah, but let's not forget that the world is comprised of individuals 
possessed of freewill. just because one californian pisses on your rug 
doesn't mean all californians will do the same. before i came to live here, 
sixteen years ago, you were all just americans to me. it wasn't long before i 
realized that the america that's marketed where i grew up didn't do any 
justice to the americans i've met since being here. when balloo mentioned, in 
another post, that he preferred the overcast days, free of glare and heat, i 
knew, and know, exactly what he means, yet i am no oregonian, much less a 
californian. i think that, in a previous post, where i used the phrase 
'dotcom okies,' i should have said dotcom migrants. perhaps i encouraged 
interstate antipathy by that error. the point is that if i have a grievance 
with anybody, it has to do with their behavior as an individual, regardless 
of any collective association to which even they might willingly adhere.
