OK, now here is another fly in the ointment. How does Down East enter into this whole discussion?
If your in Southern Maine (like Kittery or Portland) why do you have to go up Maine to go Downeast?
I think it is one of those Maine things going on here. As for the discussion on the North/South thing, I think that war has already been fought once. Now hold on a minute, that has to do with the Country. By the way, What exactly is Country?
