I had the 'pleasure' of living in an area for a dozen years where the locals almost ran around waving pennants 'We are (place)-ians, we are special, we are better'. Very tiresome. It WAS a nice area, they did have arts and culture beyond their size, no doubt, but the rah-rah stuff and the inadvertent insulting to anyone from anyplace else got tiresome. I got tired of in effect being told that my family and friends living elsewhere were of course inferior, and idiots.

Talk about paranoia. I see none of that and I've lived here since 1977. It does seem to be a myth perpetrated by those not sold by the place.
