well, I know if you stand on a tuna fish can in Nebraska, you can actually see Kansas

I once read that the Denver airport is actually in...Kansas! (commenting on the geography of this area of Colorado).

bbqboy - I did not open your link, but you seem to be taking this way too personally.

What's wrong with asking someone where they went to high school, or where they live? Or, what they've been reading, or where they traveled this year? Aren't they all ways of finding things in common, things to share, new things to learn? annieladd

ha ha. You're afraid to open a link to a small town newspaper columnist? OK. Live in fear.

You all have completely forgotten our most beloved treasure....the worlds largest (or deepest) hand dug well. Enjoy!

Annie..when you are 40 years old and asking another similar aged person "Where did you go to high school?"..it is time to get a life.High school?..why not college?.. ANd what difference does it make 'what subdivision ' one lives in?..why not ask what street?..or why ask these questions at all? I found it odd that 'high school' and 'subdivisions' define kansas citians. Then I heard the same thing about St. Louis, too.

Odd, I've lived in Kansas for 20 years and haven't noticed the high school/ subdivision questions.

But I'm rarely asked where I went to college, either.

Sister, do you realize that half of Kansas City is in MISSOURI and that the Kansas City area in Kansas is only a tiny part of the state?

The Kansas side of greater Kansas City consists partly of Johnson County. Johnson County is the wealthiest county in Kansas.

Growing up, whenever we saw a car with Johnson County tags, we always said "there goes the rich people."

Johnson county is not known for diversity.

I've been to Kansas. It's pretty. Eastern Kansas actually looks a lot like Eastern Washington, but flatter. Konza Prairie is beautiful, as are the Flint hills. And the people are super nice! I just wish there was more hiking options.

I've never been to Kansas, but if I ever find myself visiting, I think I'd like to stop at "Prairie Dog Town" to check it out. But then again, I'm just weird that way.

After living in Kansas for almost three yuears I can definitely say that the only people who think there is nothing to do there have probably never visited.

As to the "where did you go to school?" thing..well, that sounds like New England to me!
