Are you seriously comparing Detroit to Lewisburg? Wow, you ARE a moron! You obviously haven't been to Detroit in the last few years.Once again, our community has shown its geographic ignorance. Detroit area is in the mid-west with many of the same characteristics as our little community(yes,including ignorance). detroit is known for its UAW, likewise Lewisburg was for years a union town(ICP-Heil Quaker) with the same horror stories. Hundreds of union jobs were lost here just like UAW jobs in the midwest.
Even our unemployment rates are similar. Why do people with so much in common ,choose to be "red neck".
As for your Midwest comment, The term "Midwest" dates from the time when the Mississippi was roughly the western boundary of the US. Thus anything beyond the Appalachians was the "west" and Ohio, Indiana, Illinois were "midwest." It doesn't make much sense now and yes my compass and Google Earth say Detroit is North. There is no "geographic ignorance" even if Detroit is considered the Midwest it is still North from this area you retard!
