This has long been a debate among Mainers.

Let's be real, it's not totally a lie that Maine kinda feels like two states. When I was a kid it even felt that way, but it wasn't like it is now.

On one hand, it was kind of sad to see that people on opposite ends of the state seemingly thought so little of each other. On the other hand, it's nothing new. So let's see where our fellow Mainers would draw the line, if there was one to be drawn...
