regarding yesterday’s asterisk

i put an asterisk on the word “mid-west” in my post yesterday.

that’s because i got scolded for not referring to denver as “the mountain region”


i am from the east coast.

to my mind, the united states has three major regions. east, west, mid-west. basically, if it touches the atlantic, it’s the east coast. if it touches the pacific, it’s the west coast. anything in-between is the mid-west. texas and florida are their own special selves.

naturally, each region has specific regions within. but i’m most familiar with the east, vaguely know the west, and i have been to the states in-between…twice. for work. so yeah, i’m getting “mid-west” wrong for denver.

tough. luck.
