Not sure about IL/WI situation but I doubt most in this area had a problem with folks from NJ until the moved to PA in droves and completely trash the way of life while,at the same time, trashed the natives as low-brow, hillbilly and dutchy (in contrast to high society NJ???heh)<quoted text>

This is just like IL's dislike for the cheese-eaters in WI! Glory!
