Still pretty close to the mark. But remember that new crayons were issued last week.

Ah, so true. Continue w/ the haterade. As an aside, I don't know of any state where one part of the state swoons over any other part.

Back when I lived in San Bernardino County (I was born in LA...guess that makes me a Californian/non-Californian now) the rest of the county hated Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear. The mountain communities represented a mere fraction of the population, yet took up the majority of taxes for snow removal and road maintenance. Funny, no one living in Lake Arrowhead or Big bear really cared.

EDIT: BTW, San Bernardino County is the largest county in the US by area, and is larger than each of the nine smallest states...so I guess it fits the OP.

Virginia ranks 9th in state per capita income. Take away northen Va and Hampton Roads and it would be the third poorest. The rest of the state views No Va as a much of wealthy people that only cares about leaving near DC. No Va considers the rest of the state as the place all the tax money goes

Nah, we got Virginians right over the river, so we don't have to hate the people actually in-state.

[Now I'm ducking]

Hey Mirona - where can I get pix of your latest ride? Motivate me, I've got a lot of catching up to do.

When I lived in Seattle I thought the east side of the Cascades and west side hated each other, but now that I'm a couple counties removed, I find it's pretty much the whole state hating Seattle and Seattle is only barely aware of the rest of the west side of the Cascades...

As a resident of Pennsyltucky/Palabama it seems like we are hated from every direction. In fact, I think I hate us too. So, its unanimous.

Keith and Hardy nailed it regarding Eastern Washington vs. Western Washington, or Seattle vs. the rest of the state. However, they did leave out UW vs. WSU. I went to UW while Ms. MillCreek went to WSU, so this leads to hours of fun in the relationship.

Here in the Phoenix Metro area its West Valley Vs. East Valley. The easties think the west is ghetto and the west thinks the east are all stuck up snobs.

They are both 1/2 right.

Not so much hate, but there is a difference between Northern and Southern Maine.
