"Since 1882, Wood & Swink Old Store and Post Office has weathered shootings, hurricanes and ill-mannered Yankees."?

The Sentinel can't post the race of somebody that just murdered somebody else or held up yet another store in Orlando..yet they have absolutely no problems calling people from the North "ill mannered Yankees".

What sort of people does this paper employ and how do they define what is offensive and what is not??

Ill mannered Yankees? You have to be kidding me?!?!

So if we are stereotyping then I suppose that I can assume that this Post Office is full of inbred rednecks? They are really the only people who use the term Yankee anyway.

I have a feeling that the phrase "ill mannered Yankees" was a reference used by one of the subjects. If you read the whole story at the end Wilam Wood told a story about a customers rudeness. I am sure that is what was referred to. Show some maturity.

Hehe, that is exactly the response that I expected from the "Southerners".

Thank you for not proving me wrong.
