The Indiana inferiority complex rears its ugly head yet again.

It amazes me how ignorant Hoosiers can be with regards to their own state. Lake Michigan, top universities, a world class city with museums and other assorted cultural offerings, and pleasant small towns.

Why does every place have to be California or New York? These places aren't for everyone and are far from perfect, cultural opportunities or not. It's stressful to live in California, the cost of living is astronomical, and its schools are terrible. The same can be said for my current state.

Have some pride, for Christ's sake. Stand the hell up for yourselves once in a while. If you wont do it, how do you expect others to?

Amen.

Unfortunately, the system won't let me rep you.

I have been all over the country and I enjoy the west coast over any other area. If it were not for the COL/economy I'd be living there. Once you have been or lived in more scenic places you may then see that Indiana and the midwest is a bit drab and boring and void of scenery. The people in the midwest are a bit more uptight and conservative, maybe it's from lack of sunlight and recreation? Who knows.
People are people you have good, bad and wierd anywhere you go.

I'm from the Northeast...so I'm technically a Damn Yankee. Midwesterners are just Yankees...lol. I live in Kentucky with my husband (from Michigan) and he's just a "Yankee" but I am a "Damn Yankee" so there is apparently a difference between the two, at least here.

I think in Indiana, there are all three influences--from the North, Midwest, and South---depending on which part of the state you are in. Southern Indiana has a pretty distinct southern feel to it, the center of the state has a Midwestern feel and the Northern part is pretty distinctive, but still Northern in character. I'm not sure why people bash on the state, as it has a lot to offer and I have always enjoyed visiting Indiana every time that I have traveled there for business or recreation. It's pretty much the only state that has the South/North/Midwest combined that I know of.

The only complaint I have about Indiana is the number of highway patrol on the freeways in the southern and central part of the state, especially heading from KY to Indianapolis...wow...there are sure a LOT of them...lol. I think I saw one at least every couple of miles or so--quite a change from driving in TN or KY where I'm used to driving fast

When I'm driving on 65 south of Indy ... it's always Kentucky and Tennessee people who fly by me ... is it because there aren't as many cops???

I saw plenty of cops on 65 last weekend heading to Louisville. Coming back north, it was all Illinois and Michigan tags that were riding my bumper. I guess running 80 in a 70 just isn't fast enough for some people

When I was in Michigan over Christmas, we drove up from Detroit to Frankenmueth on I-75. The speed limit on I-75 in Oakland County is 70. I was doing a shade over 80. People were zooming by me like I was standing still. I am always impressed by how much faster people in Michigan drive than, honestly, every other state I have ever lived in or visited.

Those state troopers that operate out of the Seymour post are seemingly everywhere along I-65 all at once!

And I thought Ohio was the state with all the cops.
