Ah, you misunderstood the reason for the inclusion of the first part of the final paragraph:

Here I was joking since that Lars F. lives in a valley south and west of me, he is probably a super-puritan, and then the lumping makes sense. The final part of the final paragraph was me joking about ppl that live south (like Lars do): like all southerners, <insert negative stereotypes here>. This because it could be construed that Lars was stating that city-people was/is <insert more negative stereotypes here>. It also served to point to something that'd never work in fiction (wouldn't be believable), only in real life, and hence useful for conculturing. HTH, t., who hates travlling for hours by bus
