Default Midwestern humor...

Hi Gordon,

I agree!

I think one reason I like the old PHC sketches (when Garrison Keillor wrote them) was because they're a kind of Midwestern humor...

Much of the humor we're exposed to seems to come out of New York City or Hollywood... Which culturally is much more brash and self-promoting. Midwestern culture seems more self-effacing, down-to-earth, practical, and even stoic...

While I never lived in the Midwest, my family is originally from there (from Coldwater, in rural Michigan), and I certainly inherited some Midwestern traits in my own personality... Actually, I just realized, my wife and I are a little bit like a gender-reversed version of that sketch! She's very impulsive (I think that's one thing which attracted me to her), and while I do take risks, they are always very calculated risks...

Best wishes!
