@KingCombaticus not hard to believe, the borders are still open. Just made the trip again yesterday, was interesting seeing Boston and Maine. People are just getting out of lockdown, the south handled this so much better.
@maxburn Every time I come back to NY after a visit to the south, I'm struck by how unhappy everyone seems, especially the last couple years. It's funny, but when you cross into NY from PA the first thing you're treated with is a sign telling you that you'll be prosecuted for not paying road tolls ... go figure. Some people don't realize how much oppression they're living under. Even so, I know that no state/city/place is perfect.
