I think that we should all remember a few things here:
West Virginians are blessed with living below the Mason-Dixon line.
Most decended from hardy Scots-Irish or Welch stock
Many are decendents of grandfathers and great-grandfathers who
side with the yankees
Many come from grandfathers and great-grandfathers who did
Most live there because they love it, some don't because they can't
Mountaineers are always free
Their football team is usually overrated
