DURST: The Midwest
I come from this state. Well yes, of course, I speak of confusion, but more specifically, Wisconsin. The heart of the Midwest. Although technically, its in the Mideast, but that name was already taken, and I'm guessing we weren't willing to fight for it. The overriding philosophy of the Midwest is "don't rock the boat". What they neglect to tell you is there's no damn water in the pond. You can get out and walk to shore if you wish. People here admire stability. The nickname "Rockhead" is a compliment here. Erosion, a tool to be used only as a last resort. Progress is just another means of using modern technology to achieve the status quo. Even the time zone couldn't be more middle of the road. Central. And it's no co-incidence that television starts and ends an hour earlier than the rest of the country. 8PM/ 7 Central. This is where those new fangled old fashioned diners are original structures. Living in a hard land, they work hard, and play hard and take solace in simple pleasures. Eating and drinking. Sausage, cheese and beer. This is the home of beer sausage, cheese sausage, beer cheese, sausage cheese and cheese beer. We don't have sausage beer yet, but we're working on it.Will Durst is both thirsty and hungry.
