The people are great. Sure, some are a little bit red-neckish, but you get rednecks in every state. Take a look at Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. Aren't one of those states trying to outlaw interracial marriage? Come on, now. People in Missouri are friendly and neighborly.
And as for everyone saying that most of Missouri is illiterate... don't you think that's a bit pompous of you? Missouri has one of the best high schools in the country (Clayton High School) and has numerous other good, prestigious private schools. Not only that, but Mizzou has really great programs.
