    True Stories

    I was glancing through the May_June 2004 Issue when I spotted this little faux pas. It's in the "True Stories" section labeled "Democrats for Guns?".

    The problem, it says the incident took place in East Chicago, IL. East Chicago is in Indiana.

    I don't know if anyone else has spotted this, or pointed it out, but I thought I should. Just in case anyone gets the wrong idea about Illinois.

    Sure got by me Al as I recall.

    I must admit, any mention of Chicago and I think IL of course - but yeah - even checked on map and that section is indeed IN. Easy mistake to make I guess I for sure had never actually registered that!

    The thing with Chicago is that for it's location, anyplace East of it is either in Lake Michigan, or Indiana. I used to live in that area, so that's why it caught my attention.

    F350 - or anyone - please edumicate this new American citizen to the origins of ''Hoosier''.

    I am fascinated by some ''origin'' euphemisms - ''Tar Heel'' is another (NC I believe). I have to put up with (ex) Limey

    This is what I recall from Indiana history when I was in school. The main thing we were taught then (circa 1966-68) was that "Hoosier" was a contraction of "who's er?" Or "who's there." That's the one I remember most from when I was growing up.
