I knew that it would eventually happen. Took all these pages but it happened.

Oh, heck no.

Michigan, Ohio and Indiana are not part of the Northeast.

They are part of the Midwest and Fort Myers, Florida.

And y'all don't really know what a cracker is, do you?

It has to do with Florida and cowboys and is not a racial slur.

But I've found this thread very amusing. Thanks, everyone.

Except when they tried to lump those three states in with the Northeast. I did not find that amusing.

Any particular rationale? IN is Northeast??? How come? Why do you consider MI and OH Northeast? How are these three states anything at all like ME or VT? How come UT, CO and NV are Southwest and not West? And why isn't CA Southwest? And why did you throw little DE into the South?

If I as going to rewrite the map, I'd have to split up many of the states! Many geographical and cultural differences within many states.

hiknapster--I know what a cracker is. Tried to explain it a few weeks ago, but some were offended that I even used the word! I was told that in some parts of the South it is considered an insult.

Okay, here's what I have, hopefully to compromise:

Dark Green: Northeast
Light Blue: Mid-Atlantic or "Upper South"
Yellow: Upper MidWest or "Old Northwest" for you history buffs.
Dark Red: Midwest
Light Red: South
Brown: Southwest
Light Green: Mountain West
Pink: Northwest
Dark Blue: Central Pacific West

Of course I know someone will have to disagree...

Oklahoma, Missouri, and Kentucky are not part of the south.

Well the link worked when I posted it. Hmm...

Try using my attachment:

By the way, Oklahoma is SOUTH, just not SOUTHEAST.
