Those Kids In The Corner

As a Mississippian, I gotta say that some places are pretty bad, but not all of it is the hellhole as described. My hometown of Philadelphia was pretty racist and I almost got shived several times in elementary school though. Madison, however, is fairly nice as well as some of Rankin and a few other places. Just don't go around saying you're atheist or you might end up broken and b****y on the sidewalk.
