    Detroit is not all dilapitated houses, and 8 mile barely touched the surface of Detroit, yet was a good movie.

    we don't have accents in the midwest, it's everyone else who does.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    (Bump) Interesting thread.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
