I live in Ocean Springs. I guess we made it on the list because of the bars. I think the criteria may need to be a little different. There are a lot of bars, but very few are redneck bars. I can think of several cities that are more redneck, such as Helena, Vancleave, Saucier...I guess because they have no bars they didn't make it. It's a fun article anyway.
