[quote=kshe95girl;24227631]Lets review here, shall we?
Note the bolded word in my initial post about the Ozarks.
Just in case you missed it, I said NORTHERNMOST.
Northernmost.
I never said the entirety of the Ozarks were in the Midwest.[/QUOTE




Nevertheless, when hear the word "Ozark" , I don't think of the Midwest. It reminds me of extreme southern Missouri, northern Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma, and that's not the Midwest to me..

Guess we should put that on the list of stereotypes about the Midwest.
It gets rather tiresome after a while.....

Actually, I'm fairly big Midwest booster, esp the section from Chicago heading north into Wisconsin and Minnesota; the Chicago forum will back me up on this...

I think you're talking about parts of the South, not the Midwest.

Wasnt really targeting that at you, just making a general observation.
It gets rather tiresome telling people that the Midwest isnt flat, full of rednecks, etc, you know?
BTW, I dont know why the quotes are all wonky, sorry about that!

Even in the most backwards parts of Florida, there are well-educated, erudite people that would make that particular poster look like a redneck.
I've been down here 23 years, intelligent people, and rednecks, are everywhere.

Yes, but the Ozarks geographically cover more than that area. But I agree, the areas you describe are not the Midwest.

Except that Iowa was the one of the first states to legalize gay marriage, the first state to allow woman's suffrage. Step out of your stereotypes

The violent storms are the best part of the midwest/great plains.

The Ozarks are the Ozarks, like the Appalachians are the Appalachians. They fall into several categories with the census, but they're definitely closer to their own than to some general Midwestern or Southern culture.
