  •  hmm (0+ / 0-)

    my friend in question keeps trying to get me to move down there (she lives near Rehoboth.)

    I can tell that I won't fit in, if they're still that hickish, bigoted, and backwards.

    They're not just a number, Tony Snow.

      pockets of well-to-do cosmopolitans living near pockets of redneck bumpkin types.  lots of people from all over end up in rehoboth and bethany (dewey beach is pretty much just a summer beach community for yuppies to get drunk and screw), including professionals looking for a calmer style of life than they had in DC, Philly, Baltimore, Wilmington (lots of money to be made in corporate law there).  As I remember, Rehoboth attracted a number of well-off gays, Bethany was more straight/family oriented.  You can definitely find enclaves where you'd be comfortable, and not see much in the way of the element that's persecuting the jewish people in indian river.  a few miles can make a lot of difference.  My last 3 years in delaware, i lived just 5 miles from elkton, maryland, which is a seriously redneck town that even had an active KKK cell (rather small in number, but loud) that liked to stage marches in the area.  people drove beat up old cars with rustoleum paint jobs and confederate flag decals plastered on the bumbers, and spoke with dixie drawls.  where i lived, the people were nothing like that at all.  

      if you could arrange your life to move down there, i'd check it out.  there are redneck types in the hamptons and i'm sure also in the cape cod area.  besides, maybe people like you could keep people like them from behaving like they do.
