Fun With Geography!

Here's a little issue we deal with every now and again:

What regions of the country would say these states are in:

  • Missouri (South? Midwest? Plains?)
  • Pennsylvania (Midwest? Northeast?)
  • Michigan (Midwest? Upper Midwest? Canada?)

I know I'm new to this whole copy editing thing. I may be wrong. But it seems as though you need to insert a caret and a "you" between your "would" and "say".

That being said, these regional delineations make-a no-a sense-a. If Oklahoma is technically a "Southwest" state, I suppose I can buy that Michigan is part of the "Midwest". However, Detroit Rock City should be considered a special case. Motown and Midwest do not mix.

Pennsylvania = Middle Atlantic.

The twins do not say "hi".

The problem with contributing to a blog for and by geeks is that I'm held up to incredibly high expectations. But what doesn't kill me makes me stronger, said Green Bay Packer great Ray Nitschke.

And I'll get into the whole Detroit-Midwest-Rust Belt-where does it begin and end thing later down the road.

Copy edit that. What region of the U.S. do you suspect Kaitlyn is from?

Uh, that little girl should be concentrating on her homework. She shouldn't even be typing the word "sexy."

I think you guys should change your blogger banner to silver or white because navy blue is so 2005.

There's no way Pennsylvania is the Mid-Atlantic. Northeast or New England. But I refuse to believe that anything next to Ohio is in the Mid-Atlantic region. As for Missouri- my friend (a Michigander) constantly fights with his girlfriend (a Missouran) as to which region Missouri belongs. He says the south (on account of slavery and (my addition) Mark twain) and I think she says Mid-West. I'm not helping, am I?
