Anyone that would make fun of and attempt to marginalize West Virginia at this point in time is nothing but cold hearted and sick, imo.

Period.

That's ignorant, because MN is nothing like the Clevelands, Pittsburghs, and other Great Lakes rust belt areas that got hit HAAARRDD by the loss of American Manufacturing.

Economy of Minnesota - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Let's see. I post detailed information and facts from a manufacturing journal that shows how the Twin Cities ranks 4th in the country in total manufacturing. And as state? 14th. Clearly manufacturing plays a vital role in your economy. And guess what? I have lived in your state and worked in several manufacturing firms in past years. It is abundantly clear to me that you simply are uninformed about your own state's economic engine.

And what does Bob Dylan have to do with anything? Non sequitur.

Whatever you do, please do not move to New England. We don't want people like you.

My previous comment regarding hilliness was just to poke fun, as the OP said "There are parts of PA that are hillier than anywhere in the Midwest"...those type of comments just show how ignorant and unaware much of the country is when thinking about the midwest.

You say that there are parts of PA that are hillier than anywhere in the midwest, when that's just not true, especially when I live in the midwest in one of the hilliest cities in America.

I have been to PA too, just Philly though.
You can't spell "truly" either.

Yeesh. After watching interviews from some of the locals...Man, WV does look backwards... Holy moly. No dentists in WV? Coal minin' not payin' good Dental Premiums in that crap hole or what?
There are dentists in WV, Dear--not sure where you heard otherwise. Also, on a related note, I wouldn't be commenting about crap holes when you live in MINNESOTA

I knew how to spell "prevalent" by 7 or 8 years of age. What are they teaching (or not teaching) in those Minnesotan schools?!

Do you really believe what you're saying?

Here are terrain maps of Duluth and Pittsburgh----proof that Pittsburgh is much hillier than Duluth. (Just click on terrain view and zoom into the areas.)

duluth MN - Google Maps

http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=...ed=0CA0Q8gEwAA

Pittsburgh's metro population is larger by over 2 million people. (Pittsburgh 2.5 million > Duluth 250k)

Pittsburgh is hillier and larger. Duluth is more like a town compared to Pittsburgh.

The Midwest does not get a bum rap.

Next question? (Don't ask such a stupid one this time).

You know, I don't see you doing anything productive here except complaining. How about you contribute or stop posting.

NEXT.

duluth MN - Google Maps

pittsburgh pa - Google Maps
From their respective city-data articles-
Pittsburgh's highest point is 1,223 ft. and lowest point is 696 ft. Difference: 527 ft.
Duluth's highest point is 1,485 ft. and lowest point is 605 ft. Difference: 880 ft.
And from the looks of the maps, Pittsburgh just looks like it has lots of small hills, whereas Duluth is built on an old mountainside. So Pittsburgh is not a good example to use.

What's your point? Was anyone arguing more people live in Duluth than Pittsburgh?

PA is a very hilly state. There are lots of communities that are hillier than Duluth. I've been to Duluth and yes, it is hilly but it won't compare to many areas of PA in that respect regardless of the size of the hills.
