Here's how I rank the country:
#1 Mid-westerners, followed by
#2 Non-East or West coasters
That's it. Now you know where you stand in my world...
The city can be quite rude and taint one over time. And I've been here almost 7 years! I'm worried the East coast has corrupted me and I may not fit in when I return to the Midwest...someday, over the rainbow. I might hate the slow walking and talking. The Engineer might feel lost with out a traffic jam to get stuck in. And LE might be scared of corn fields and cows.
Nah...I'm sure we'll fit in just peachy, someday.
