thought of the day 2009 07 09 - midwest

Here's the thing about the Midwest. It's full of liars and self important douches. Let me explain. With a name like Midwest, I would expect it to be in the middle of the western part of the country. It isn't. Granted it is West of the Mississippi but if you want the middle of the western part of the country, it's you can't really go east of Colorado.

Though I suppose it's possible that the Midwest gets its name from the idea that it was in the middle of the path people took when going west. But then, an entire section of the country is defined not by its location but by the people moving past it towards somewhere else. And that's what we should all do, pass right on through it to somewhere else.
