I'm guessing he thought he was insulting me. I said, 'Thanks. I appreciate your noticing.'

I've met some and I don't think you qualify... you're too nice, for starters, and way more practical.

What? I missed it? What did he say, that term?

Yeah, that's the term he used. Along with a few others I resemble. No 'bad' words, just phrases people think I would find insulting which basically say that I'm college-educated and pay attention to the world around me.

So what's the alternative you ought to aspire to - flatlander high-school dropout?  A guest said this to you?

so you were talking and he said to you 'east coast intelligensia' ?  i think it's a term meant to describe intellectual, educated people on the east coast.  could also mean liberal.  sometimes seen as a slam. 

from your reaction, seems like it was intended as a snide remark?

Oh, the whole conversation was based on what 'you people' on the East Coast don't know about the troubles the rest of the country is seeing.
