(BBC)   Soon, the sound of the rabbi plucking his six string will no longer roll across the Delta, the synagogues will close, and the South will be the way you thought it always was   (bbc.co.uk ) divider line

Uh... am I supposed to just know WTF is going on in this pic? Did I miss some context in the article? By not knowing why the hell these women are wearing boat, laundry, etc hats does that make me an anti-semite? Because... yanno... I wouldn't want to be one of those.

FrancoFile: Nabb1: yellowcat: Goodluckfox: Nabb1: phalamir: Nabb1: There is still a very large, thriving Jewish community in New Orleans, but New Orleans is often a bit different than the rest of the South.

They are talking about the Delta, not the South in general - unless we've redefined "the South" to mean only one part of Mississippi.

It's not just the Mississippi Delta, though. Lots of communities across the South are losing groups as kids move to more metropolitan areas.

I was born in the Delta, and have lived in MS for most of my life, other than a few years in Arkansas and Tennessee.

Nabb1 has it right. It's not just the Jews leaving. It's everyone that can. This isn't really even a noteworthy story; it' s the logical outcome of demographic and economic changes.

Count me as one -- although I stayed in the South, didn't go back to the my small home town on the edge of the Delta. I always say that Mississippi is a good place to be from. But I have a bookcase full of books on Mississippi. It's an interesting place, more diverse than people think. We always said that every town (at least those in the Delta) had a Chinese grocery, a Lebanese furniture store and a Jewish clothing store. I just can't live there.

My wife is a radiologist and recruiters often send her offers of ungodly sums to ho practice in the hinterlands somewhere, but the lifestyle change from being in a major metropolitan area just isn't worth it to us.

I assume the whole other-dudes-farking-her thing is a turnoff too.


I swear to God, my iPad farks with me on purpose.
