Puremagic, If you feel that way maybe you better stay in that "hollar" away from the folks in this state that don't mind associating with other people and showing them the hospitality the good people of this state have to offer. Because those people you descibe are West Virginians backwoods ******* hillbillies, a true minority in this state and tend to stick to the "hollers". The true West Virginia folk welcome people from other areas to come and enjoy our beautiful state.

"And "Buckwild" isn't a real snapshot of life in West Virginia or an accurate portrayal of its' people". Kudos to the Intermountain for that statement. Had the show been an accurate portrayal of its' people, most of the cast members would be overweight and diabetes infected. West Virginians are number two in that category nationwide and home of the number one party school, WVU. I say we all go have a big mac and watch some couches burn. Thanks for making me laugh. P.S. You might check that CNN viewership number that you refer to as "millions". I'm pretty certain that it's more like 250,000 - 500,000 at any given time. But not millions.

Outsiders like you lefties in here do NOT portray West Virginians either. You're liked about as much as these folks are.
