WOW.  This episode hit home.  As a Minnesotan living in Northwest Arkansas, I have LIVED the rejection Nell suffered, for no reason other than being born north of the Mason-Dixon Line.  In the 17 years since moving here, I've met dozens of people who seem to hate me as soon as they meet me.  Until a year ago, I just assumed all those people were "having a bad day" or more likely, jealous because I look SO much younger than my age.  A year ago my eyes were opened to the bigotry of people who were brainwashed by parents and grandparents to HATE Yankees, and to punish every Yankee they meet.  Their attitude is clearly: "If you don't like the way we treat you Yankee, Go Home!"
