Agreed. The OP is just a Hoosier with a chip on his shoulder. Cant stand big brother next door.

Mother nature is working on it.

The fowl hanging by their necks in the Chinatown windows

I wouldn't mind Detroit... I buy European cars

...those ducks in Chinatown are the best things you've ever tasted, believe me ... but I'm 1/4 Chinese, so I guess it's same-ol, same-ol for me and not shocking whatsoever.

Detroit? While it may be declining, it is still a very important American city...trust me it would be missed enough. Little Rock, Arkansas...I guarantee that is a city that America would not be any worse off without. Little Rock is without a doubt the most boring "real" city in the United States that I've ever been to. Rarely do I ever hear it being mentioned by anyone. It has no tourist attractions worth seeing, its population is very small for a city, and to my knowledge, Little Rock doesn't have anything that America depends on for it. It is a boring city (IMO it hardly even qualifies as a city...it's certainly one of the smallest "official cities" i've ever visited),in the middle of a boring and fairly poor state. In fact, I seriously think Arkansas (most of it except the extreme northern parts where the mountains are) could fall off the face of the earth and nobody would care. Gary, Indiana I would agree on mainly because of its being in the Chicago metro area. Gary is a part of Chicago to me for that reason. East Saint Louis probably wouldn't be missed either, but East Saint Louis is essentially part of St. Louis. I think that Fargo, North Dakota wouldn't be missed that much, or Des Moines. Another city I think we wouldn't miss is Jackson or Hattiesburg, MS, or Alexandria, LA.

Fargo is a busy little city that has grown despite its North Dakota heritage. It is very important to its state as well as to western MN. Not many people in those parts, but to them, Fargo's very important, a regional center for commerce, health care, culture and transportation.
