It's not ironic at all

Texas and many other so-labeled 'conservative' states has a general atmosphere of compassion towards others. I've lived in all parts of this country and LA & the east coast are the most self-interested people around. In Denver, I knew 17 neighbors and had 'knock-and-walk-in' friendships with 4 of them. I lived there for 5 years. In PA, I met 2 neighbors in 6 years. In Maryland, I never knew one.

I doubt that the difference seen between the east coast and Texas has to do with personal approval of lifestyle. It's just more due to hospitality and manners.
