I grew up in Boston, and finally settled in sunny and outwardly friendly California 16 years ago after living on 3 continents.
I like your appeal's sentiment, but worry that Boston and the Commonwealth's residents (aka M*ssholes) will get overwhelmed by yet another national trend, smiling and being friendly in a shallow, small-talk way.
For all its outward hostility, Boston is the home of my closest and most genuine friends in the world. Bostonians may be tough nuts to crack, but once you get to know them, they're the most wicked awesome people in the world.Ken, 14 years ago.
