You seem to have an identity crisis or just plain denial.
Wait a second...in terms of Branson and Table Rock Lake, I agree that those areas are very southern in comparison. In terms of Springfield and Joplin, they are borderline cases for being southern. But yes, around the Arkansas border, no arguments...I've been to those areas and they feel as un-Midwestern as it gets. My dad grew up in the Joplin, Monnett, and Springfield areas, however...he considers those to be Midwestern, or at the very least "not-the-South" in his own words. So I'm not just going on my own words here. Anyone who thinks I'm on a mission to convert people to a lie is wrong...I'm not even on any mission other than to present facts that are as close to the truth as you can get. Chitownwarrior thinks I'm in denial and in an identity crisis because I don't agree with him...nope. I know my culture, I know my city, I know my state, I know my origins, and I don't question any of what I experienced felt, and observed because I know to do so would be pointless. I don't get glory out of telling lies and distorting facts, I never felt good about lying and never will...I get glory out of getting people to see the true nature of things, and by doing research that educates me and that is verifiable, then I present my findings. So if chitownwarrior has an issue with me, that's his problem. I'll stop the insults burgerflipper, but I'm not going to apologize for presenting my point of view or for doing lots of research for something that interests me and for presenting facts that are anything but what I consider to be the truth. My point of view has never changed one time, so anyone who thinks I have an identity crisis might want to consider that before randomly spitting it out.

Lol, actually your insults don't bother me. In fact, this entire exchange has been mildly bizarre.

Whatever. Let's just end it then. We seem to be more on the same page now anyway.

Not to say Arkansas doesn't have selling points because it does, but for me MO would work better.
I'm always amazed by prejudiced responses like this. You have to be a native of a state to know what is available in terms of culture. NW Arkansas, Little Rock and Hot Springs, to name a few Arkansas urban areas, have many restaurants that serve up haute cuisine on par with Kansas City and St. Louis.
