'Same state, different world'

By Donald F. Graff, Fairfax

Regarding the Jan. 16 front-page story "Dixie and D.C. region drift farther and farther apart”:

The story on the southward migration of the “cultural Mason-Dixon line” brought to mind a visit to Richmond that my wife and I, then recent transplants from the Northeast, made years back.

During a tour of the state Capitol, the guide asked people in the group where they were from. Several out-of-state locations were mentioned before she came to us. “Fairfax,” we replied. “Ah, yes,” she said. “Same state, different world.”
