My Home, the Midwest

I started thinking about this the other day at the SI picnic when talking with Heather about her drive cross-country. Her and her BF thought the Midwest extended to the likes of Nebraska, Kansas and so forth. Well, maybe the rest of the country thinks that; I guess I don't really know. But I don't think that. What is the Midwest to me? Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and the western half of Pennsylvania. Jury is still out on Minnesota, Iowa and Northern Missouri, but I'd let them join the party if they wanted. Where do the Dakotas, Nebraska and Kansas stand? Sorry guys, you're what I refer to as "The Plains".

These guys seem to agree with me:



In other thoughts, the "Midwest" is a misnomer. We're more like the Mideast. But I suppose maybe the regions were named before the whole country was explored.
