The Midwest sometimes gets short shrift from people on both ends of the country. They often call it “flyover country.” In other words, they ask, “Why would anyone want to stop in the Midwest?”
Native Midwesterners or transplants might take exception to the term, “flyover country.”
One man who certainly takes exception to the term is Mike Draper.
