Prejudices, discrimination, crazy delusional people who think there is 1 supreme race are you serious? The hay, farms, gray skies, rainy days almost every day, flat lands, miles of corn fields, pickup trucks, Wal-Martís, Krogerís, OMG someone save me. Nothing to do any day of the week. Nowhere to go on weekends everything is a disappointment. I am so sick and tired of being sick in this place that I do not belong the Midwest is for the plain, conservative, close minded cults. Someone save me.[/SIZE]
I can agree w/most of that.

Then seriously, you've got to get out more. That description does not describe all, or not even most, parts of the Midwest.

I left St. Louis for Atlanta and Tucson. Very happy to be back in the lou. I guess I'm in the minority that's happy to have left the south and southwest.

As someone who was born and raised in the Chicago area (which is part of the midwest), and grew up attending schools in which the majority of people were not Caucasian, was riding the subway at age 13, etc ... all I can kindly say to people like you is "walk east until your hat floats". Good day sir.

I moved from St. Louis to Denver in 2006 and it was the best decision of my entire life. If I could take a pill to forget the 5 long arduous years I lived in St. Louis I would take it in an instant. I think I seriously have PTSD from living in St. Louis. I still have nightmares of those fat white dudes in non-matching navy blue suits eating Arby's french fries everyday while talking about the crappy Cardinals and their commute on highway "farty far". Yes, I'm WHITE.

I spent 2 years in Iowa, while it had it's charms, the hot, humid summers and cold snowy winters did not appeal to me.

I wouldn't mind visiting the Amana colonies some spring or fall again, but, for the most part, I'm glad to be done with the Midwest.

I moved from the Chicagoland area to the american SW. Visited the SW as a tourist first. Went to Vegas, Phoenix and New Mexico and fell in love with it. Now been here some 15 years and love it.
First moved to El Paso then Las Vegas. Sunny, dry climate, mountains, outdoor activities are to be enjoyed almost always.....

Anything I miss? THe big city feel of Chicago, its summers when its very lively even though humid and its people
