Though I haven’t lived there for nigh on a decade, I still consider myself “Midwestern born and bred”. (As if saying things like “nigh on” doesn’t give it away!) Still whenever I meet a transplant, we always reminisce and then note that it’s a great place to be “from”. This article indicates that perhaps that is changing. At the very least there may be better ways to get home for a visit besides driving across the state that never ends (a.k.a. Ohio).
