    When I was in Mississippi, a friend from southern Louisiana considered anyone from north of I-10 to be a Yankee. I don't know what he called people to the west, but I suspect it was even less complimentary.

    From the perspective of CT, only people from Maine, NH, & VT are Yankees. And, when I lived in Maine, it seemed only people from coastal sections of Hancock & Washington counties were Yankees. No Red Sox fans, wherever they live, are Yankees.

    My wife is from Ohio (Yankee) and when we first met I told my kids that she was a yankee. One day they were watching tv and saw something about Yankee Stadium, and they asked her if she lived in Yankee Stadium.

    Yes, I know westerner would work, but I thought it should be something cute - yet politely derogatory like yankee.

    Hmmmm.. I don't think anyone from the West is a yankee or a rebel... the yankee/rebel thing came about during the Civil War, and the Western states weren't even there yet... just northeast and southeast states..

    Westies don't have to do this crap -_^ ...Westies! That's it!!

    True, but there was a huge gap between California and east of the Mississippi, or thereabouts.

    Maybe something relating to the Rockies would be appropriate?

    How about gold-diggers? I mean, that's what got so many people out to Cali in the 1800's, no?

    Now that is cute and politely deragatory....
