Is this a real thread, or should I just close it now?

Do you have to even ask that question when you see who started it?

I suppose, but I try to be as hands off as I possibly can.

And there ain't no city called Dixie. Dixie is a state of mind.

The people in Dixie, Georgia would not agree with the thread title.

Several years ago I saw a flyer for a local band called My Dixie Wrecked. I thought that was clever.

Not having a town named Dixie is going to destroy us in years to come.

If they don't allow new thread posts in Dixie, I wish you were there, too.

I've never liked singing that line since my mom's name is Dixie, just seemed weird saying I wanted to be in her....

She has one of the most southern sounding names of all time. Her original name was Dixie Lee Dean.

Only could have been worse if her name was Dixie Lee Slavetrader

Wasn't "Dixie Highway" mentioned in the Bruce Springsteen song Darlington County?

I remember hearing a joke years ago on Talk Soup back when John Henson was still the host. He was talking about The Dixie Chicks and said they need to change their name to Chicks with Dixie.
