I grew up in Lexington, VA. As I unfortunately have to point out for the millionth time on this website, Lexington is NOT redneckville. The ignorance that exudes from your posting far exceeds the ignorance that you have imputed to Lexingtonians. It's a place of remarkable cultural vibrance, intelligent and worldly locals, and lovely scenery.
Lexington is an Eden... once you leave, you'll only want to return. Check it out for yourself.
I think the OP didn't mean it in the insulting way that you took it (note the question mark). Being so far removed from a major city would give almost anyone the same impression if they are not from similar areas.
And no more posts about how great Lexington is. I don't think I'll get in, and it pains me to hear about a place I imagine is nearly ideal for me.
