I heard some Bubbas bubbaling last night at an "American-style" restaurant called Kansas. They were complaining about the fact down here in the Austral World they are summarily considered "Yankees" along with everyone else, including Canadians. Such strong self-identification with all things "southern" always catches me off guard. After all, the United States of America is still the United States of America last I checked. Besides, I was born in what were the Western Territories during the American Civil war between the States of the Confederacy and The Union. Out in the wild and woolly west we rarely think about such differences. With such deep feelings still running under still waters what do you think? If the war between The Union and the States of the Confederacy were fought today, who would win or who would you like to see win between The Union (The North) and the original Confederate States (The South) Feel free to elaborate.
