I do love Boston, love Cape Cod (off season), love the concentration of top notch universities, love the cutting edge biotech, but please leave the Mad Max driving at home when venture to your northern neighbors. Above all, don't tailgate. Outside of Burlington (Mass north) it's considered extraordinarily rude.

I live in Delaware, I don't hate New Jersey but it's drivers are the rudest in the world and ours are the most polite Walleye Jun 23 #1
