    Yes, Mr. Kenneth, Indiana is an entirely different state and state of mind. In my office (in Chicago) we refer to Indiana as the Northern Most Southern State. It is indeed Redneck Central. Also stronghold to the KKK and weirdly proud of that sad fact as well. I try not to cross the border to IN if I can avoid it at all. It is frightening and dark and scary.
