Okay, I was going to be really mean and say how crappy I think the midwest is. But, with the exception of Missouri (which was actually kind of pretty) and Kansas (which was too flat for my taste), I've not really seen the midwest. And I know plenty of people from the midwest who are really nice and cool. Sure, midwesterners get labeled as fat, boring and backward, but hey, you can find people like that all over the country, right? I don't think the midwest has a monopoly.

I admit, I must have the deserts of Arizona, the mountains of Colorado and the beaches of California, the spicy food of the southwest, and the sunshine all over the west, but I'm sure the midwest has it's share of interesting stuff too.

Anyway, we're all Americans, so what difference does it make?
The midwest probably gets slammed by people who have never even been there, or just passed through.

The show was a hit in the Midwest before its popularity spread outward.

A massed region that is thought to be full of hicks and more conservative people with dull, boring accents. These are bigotted, narrow-minded people from other regions who say this. The Midwest isn't a bad place at all.
I love the Midwest and the people.

A massed region that attaches 13 states together. They include the following: Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Kansas.
This is a huge area that is seen by many people in several different ways. Some think its boring, and full of hicks. Or, they love it, consider it a vacation area, and would love to raise a family there. It was mostly settled by people from the Northeast, Virginia, West Virginia, and every part of Kentucky. German and Irish immigrants also contributed heavily to settling this large area.
During the Civil War the area produced some of the finest, bravest Union regiments of the conflict. Later on, the Midwest would become a strong industrial/agricultural power in the world. It's cities are now major diverse, major educational centers.
The Midwest, one of the finest and most fun places to be.

Where it's at.
No plastic west-coasters, and no snobby east-coasters.
In other words, the best kept secret in America.

Home of
deep-dish pizza,
motown music,
friendly faces,
a bangin' theatre scene,
the gateway to the west,
affordable living,
and a hell of a lot of lakes.
life's the best in the the midwest...

The massed region that I call home. It is composed of the following states: Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, and North Dakota. This is the greatest part of America, if you ask me. The largest cities in the Midwest include: Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Columbus, Omaha, Louisville, Cleveland, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Kansas City, Des Moines, Fargo, Sioux Falls, Madison, Cincinnati, Evansville, Rockford, and Minneapolis.
The Midwest is the only place I'll ever call home.
