I agree with your poll. The word Chicago doesn't go well with Wisconsin, but Milwaukee and Illinois match.

Yep.. Indiana is our neighbor. Wisconsin hardly ever crosses my mind but I was just in Indiana tonight.

I kind of like that. Not the sprawling part, but the fact that Chicago's reach is going that far.

Racine and Kenosha Counties both are in Chicagoland but haven't really been affected by Chicago. I don't see Berrien County changing much any time soon. But it is nice.
