Tupper: Stuck without an identity in flyover country

Email

I’ve always cringed whenever somebody labels me a Midwesterner.

The Midwest is flyover country. It lacks cultural and political significance. It’s the last to join national trends, if it joins at all. Or so goes the thinking in much of the rest of the country. To be Midwestern is to be dull, unimportant and irrelevant, at least in the minds of many who inhabit hipper regions.
