There is nothing "Michigan-like" about Bowling Green or Findlay.

All valid but the correct answer for Montana is clearly Butte. Unless you're from Butte and then it's everywhere that isn't Butte.

I grew up in Bowling Green and it is most certainly "Michigan-like". I feel a much bigger connection to Michigan than I do Cleveland or Cincinnati. Cbus a little bit but just because I was born there and my dad still lives there and it really doesn't have much of a personality to differ from anyway.

In SE Florida, people dislike everything outside of SE Florida. In Central Florida, people dislike SE Florida and Central Florida (lol). In Western/Gulfcoast Florida, SE Florida is the most hated. In North Florida, anything below Gainesville sucks.

In Nebraska, the most hated area would have to be Omaha, but I think it's been toned down a lot since Omaha's become a decently well known city. It used to be people would say how it was crime ridden, and people preferred Lincoln, but now it seems as if most people are pretty proud of both cities.

I will say that in western Nebraska there is not so much hate as alienation from the rest of the state since it's so far out there. Not a lot of people out east go to western nebraska except passing through to Colorado, which means bypassing the panhandle entirely. The same goes for most western Nebraskans. Most people west of about North Platte do their business in Denver or Rapid City, get their news there etc, and cheer for the Broncos as much as the Huskers. Panhandle residents also wanted to join Wyoming (since Cheyenne is about 2 hrs from most of the panhandle), but that didn't work out. To me as an eastern nebraskan that most people don't visit western NE. It's got a lot of cool places to visit, especially if people go to the Black Hills or Denver. Its sad too because most people think of Nebraska as this place with a lot of corn, but you get to Western NE the landscape is much more western like Wyoming.

As for Iowa, since I've traveled there quite a bit. It seems as if Western Iowa isn't treated very well. Everyone hates Council Bluffs (Counciltucky) and Sioux City isn't very well respected (even it's own residents call it Sewer City, and for being on a river and in a nice setting, it doesn't have a lot going for it). I've even heard politicians call Western Iowa an extension of Eastern Nebraska since its a little more conservative and pretty rural(not a lot of large towns over 10,000 except for Sioux City and Council Bluffs and Fort Dodge).

Pensacola has the number one most unclean water in the entire nation; it's more unhealthy to drink than any other county in the entire United States.

Located on the Florida Panhandle along the Gulf of Mexico, Pensacola is Florida's westernmost major city. Analysts say it has the worst water quality in the country. Of the 101 chemicals tested for over five years, 45 were discovered. Of them, 21 were discovered in unhealthy amounts. The worst of these were radium-228 and -228, trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene, alpha particles, benzine and lead. Pensacola's water was also found to contain cyanide and chloroform. The combination of these chemicals makes Pensacola's water supply America's most unhealthy.

Here in Arkansas, its the Delta region. That area near the Mississippi River has the worst poverty and worst health statistics. Its like a different world from the areas in west and northwest Arkansas.
