The people of Nebraska are also notorious for their extremist rightwing views, as well as their fetish for the Nebraska Cornhuskers college football team.
The city of Omaha has recently bankrupted it's own city budget forever simply because the bigshots in Milwaukee who run the College World Series (CWS) demanded a stadium closer to downtown, and the Omaha City Council bowed down and obeyed.
Major corporations that have been based in Omaha include Northern Natural Gas Company (which later renamed itself Enron) and the also defunct Franklin Credit Union, which had been at the center of controversy involving a pedophile ring linking Boys Town and several powerful republican figures during the first George Bush terms as President in the late 80's.
People of Omaha also have a disturbing hatred/obsession with the city of Council Bluffs, IA across the river. No one quite knows where or why they have such a seething animosity towards this city across the Missouri River. It seems that people in Omaha just need something to look down on in order to make their own hideous lives seem superior.
