"Maine may have just turned red, politically speaking, but color it green — green with envy for its only American neighbor, New Hampshire. Unlike any of the lower 48 states, Maine has only one other neighboring state to compare itself with, feud with, compete with, and sometimes even cooperate with. Feelings engendered by the unique two-state tie extend away from the capitals. Each state thinks it has better ski slopes, more colorful autumn leaves, better university hockey teams, and superior maple syrup." (05/23/11)
