For this I came to the Midwest?

I went to a birthday party this evening where four people had gone to Stuyvesant, one to both Bronx Science and Brooklyn Tech, and another to one of those, can't remember which. Somehow I think Alexander Portnoy's quest to penetrate the Heartland in search of all-American ruddiness might have been anticlimactic if he'd decided to embark upon it this evening. As for me, I like that Chicago's got a bit of everything, from the Lincoln Park Trixie to the UChicago NYC geek-school reunion, and so much more. So yeah, this is what I came to the Midwest for, if Chicago counts as the Midwest, and speaking as a New Yorker, it most certainly does.
