For the same reason somebody would bump it to the top to make this type of comment I suppose.

I lived the first 50 years of my life around Chicago, the last 16 in Iowa. I'd choose Iowa but the bloom is fading from the rose. People are nice, friendly and reserved. But after they get comfortable with you they get very nosy and judgemental. Illinois people are consistently grumpy. I'll take grumpy.

Iowa has the driftless area and Pikes Peak, Illinois, Starved Rock/Mathiessen. The both have corn. Lots of it.

Illinois has a lot of Very Large Corporations that don't seem to pay taxes. Iowa has a lot of egg farms. And turkeys. Flatbeds loaded with cages of live turkeys.

Iowa has a population of 3 million people and 30 million hogs; adjust your expectations accordingly.
