Where are the Nicest People in America?

Having traveled to every city in the United States and met all sorts of people I have found the rural Northwest to have the nicest folks of all; that was until I had the opportunity to spend some time in South Texas to warm up during the last winter. I would like to discuss the attitude of the people of South Texas. I would say that that friendly attitude is a model of what all America should be. In many of the big cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Dallas, Atlanta, etc. people self segregate, are reliably unfriendly to strangers; sure they are great with their friends, but just get on a freeway in Baltimore, Boston, Seattle or San Francisco and see how long it takes you to find out you are number one? In South Texas no one flips you off while driving, maybe because Texas has the reputation that everyone carries a gun? But that is not it; it is the people and their humble and positive attitude. They drive polite; much different than in the largest American cities where they are not polite when driving, do not start conversations with strangers and are not promoting goodwill towards their fellow man.
