Another yeoman's job. I enjoyed the read.

Thank you for you hard work.

Lance Mannion

Thank you kindly, Mr Wirth.


Good stuff, but there are 2 other bits New York values shorthand implied in the Cruz jibe that factor in:

If you remember the 1992 election, Newt Gingrich delivered a line saying (roughly) the 1992 election would be a contest between Reader's Digest (the Real America) and The Village Voice (snooty left-wing homosexual socialists who look down on the Real America. This didn't work out that well in 1992 but has a long shelf life.

NY is the home of the United Nations. Again, a collection of effete snobs and Non-Christian dilettantes who look down on the Real America, and who, btw, are plotting to take away our guns.

The potency of anti-NY sentiment is so powerful in Yahoo-land that if Cruz had been just a little less lazy and spelled it out, he wouldn't have gotten owned by Trump. Thank God that Cruz is such a smug git.


Good read Lance. But free advice from a long time New Yorker: Just walk straight ahead, don't look anyone in the eye, don't respond if spoken to. It'll keep you out of trouble.
