Do you not realize how much beauty lies within the midwest? Or Great Lakes as I like to call it.

The countryside? Uh... okay, I didn't realize I lived 'in the country'.

For my region of the midwest, I prefer 'the great lakes' area as I do think that the area surrounding the great lakes as a different cultural orientation (more industrial based rather than agricultural based) than the other parts of the midwest. Being from Chicago, and learning to ride the subway before I learned how to drive a car, I've always had a bit of a difficult time relating to the whole 'farmer' image of the midwest, even though I know it is there.

I consider myself - Southern Missourian - Missourian - Cardinal fan - Midwest - USA.

Maybe throw the Ozarks in there somewhere as well.

The Midwest is not just the Great Lakes states...Iowa and Missouri don't touch the Great Lakes. I think "North Central United States" is the best substitute I could come up with. Plus, I don't think flatlands is a good term for the Midwest because not all of the Midwest is flat...Southern Missouri, Southern Illinois, Southern Indiana, Southern Ohio, Northern Michigan, Northern Wisconsin, and Northern Minnesota are hardly what I would call flat. The flatlands is a term better suited for the Great Plains.

I think Midwest is alright. There are a lot of cultural differences between different parts of the Midwest, but there are the same difs between places in the Northeast. For instance, Maine has not got much in common with Delaware (which a lot of people might not consider part of the Northeast, because it's south of the Mason-Dixon).
