What does what sets Michigan apart from its neighbors, Wisconsin, Indiana and Ohio?
Since I live in the U.P. and I live in one of the counties that border on Wisconsin. The U.P., you know, we have a distinctive identity, I guess among ourselves and probably among the state of Michigan as Yoopers. We’re traditionally kind of used to taking care of ourselves here.
What sets us apart from our neighbors? Actually, we don’t, up here where we are. We’re a lot like Wisconsin or maybe I should say Wisconsin is a lot like us. You know, we’re in the Upper Midwest, the Lake Superior region, we’re a lot like Minnesota in some ways. We’re probably more alike than anything else. I think Michigan and the Midwest are — are different from other parts of the country and the fact that we — We are like, maybe not all other people aren’t, but we are salt-of-the-earth people type thing we’re used to doing again, just like the Yoopers, we’re used to doing stuff on our own. We’re — we’re kind of just, you know buckle down and get it done by people. Not that other people aren’t, just that apparently that seems to be our — our Thing. I don’t know.
