I recently went to Beverly Hills California for 10 days, and it was a nice place. I think Maryland has a nicer city, but CA has nicer people. Today I went to the super market to buy chicken to make some chicken stock, and I must say, what a bunch of angry, miserable, SOB's live in Maryland. I really cant stand these people anymore. They are all jerks. Obviously not all of them, but a good majority of these people act like a POS. MIH, send over some of those nice California girls that smile at you when you walk by.....:grumpy: In conclusion, dont visit Maryland or DC for the people. The people in NY are rude, but they have character to them. The people here are just rude or snobs.
