"They talk very loud, very fast and altogether. If they ask you a question, before you can utter three words of your answer they will break out upon you again and talk away.”
-John Adams, on New Yorkers
New Yorkers are rude. Everybody knows it. Right? They talk too fast, move too fast, and don't even think about asking them for directions. Even in the nascent days of our republic, John Adams 'knew' that no good could come from consorting with those savages to the south of New England.
