I have not been in New England since I lived there about 7-8 months in 1969.
(New England where people are notoriously Unfriendly and unhelpful) has it gone downhill since then??
maybe its a lobster shortage?
I thought free or die would mean happy and helpful?
Ha! Well Mark, I actually think it has gone downhill since then. Living here as I do I guess I interpret the "live free or die" slogan more as "leave me alone". It must be the lobster shortages that makes everyone so grumpy. When I visited my brother in California he said I kept "blanking" people who smiled at me on the street. I honestly didn't mean to! We don't do that here!
