I admit, I am a little biased towards Indianapolis. But unlike some members, I will acknowledge that ALL of the Midwestern cities are great in some way... Oh, and I dont post false and misleading information like some members that throw out numbers without even trying to research their info...

In my mind the Midwest is the greatest region of the country.

All of our greatest assets (our people) are transplanted to the northeast, south, and west because that's where all the jobs are. The most creative, the most interesting, the most fun, spirited, and kind people in these parts of the country are Midwesterners called to fulfill the country's greatest jobs on the coasts and in the south. The Midwest breeds their success at our expense.

i hate to see a decline in the population of cities... me myself I dislike sprawl...most suburbs of cities would not even exist if not for the actual cities. Just somethin to think about. Take that, Hamilton County.

Hey, KM1410 - I noticed you were from Carmel, IN. I viewed a planner position with the Carmel on the web. Looks like there are some nice homes in the area - can you elaborate anything else on Carmel?

Thanks in advance.

because people give out false info based on their ignorance and you cant always believe what they say unless they have facts.

Thats why when people post information they post a source, or should anyways otherwise I and I know alot of others could really care less what comes out of their keyboard.. Speaking of the forum I think you should probably read the rules.

Sometimes people will just type their opinions though, which is ok. That's what I did. As long as it's not attacking someone else, I don't see a problem with it.

Yeah I was talking more about "give[ing] out false info based on their ignorance".

There is a minimall that will be the largest in the world at the edge of Poplar Street and people will flock to it and it will be the biggest toruist attraction in the tri state area.

Stuff like that, I figured that is what he was referring to.

Yes, that's the great thing about SSC. Everyone's biases cancels everyone else's, and gets filtered into some sense.

Ah! Nothing like getting heated over BS posts on a slow morning.
What kind of burning emotion would we have without liars?

Midwest rocks and I love all the cities. I think they all network with each other very well and offer a web of great and interesting cities.

Some people enjoy being a know-it-all, though. Who likes know-it-alls? I don't.

Yes they are. There will always be discrepencies when comparing cities of different sizes and one of them happens to be your own. If you ask people what their favorite city is and their own town is an option, they will most likely choose their town. If Chicago is bigger than Des Moines and has more forummers, guess who wins.

Better city maybe, but if I were asked who has the better skyline between Louisville and Chicago, Chicago would be my answer. I am not blinded by bias. And I don't think that many people who lived in Louisville or Toledo could say their skyline is better than Chicago's.
