NO MORE SOUTHERNERS?….From the “Hmmm” file:

From 1991 to 2001, the number of people living in the South who identified themselves as “Southerners” declined 7.4 percent, from about 78 percent to 70 percent.

The study found that only Republicans, political conservatives and the wealthy bucked this trend, keeping the same percentage of self-described “Southerners.”

I have no idea what to make of this.
