The sad thing is, I probably picked up the Dixie while living no futher south than Indiana ... proof that rural Indiana IS a world unto itself, but NOT justification for their obsession with the Confederacy. That remains a mystery to me, tied up with squeamish memories of my surreal afternoon at the Matthews Covered Bridge Festival. (Remember that, Allison?)
I'm not really sure what the difference is between Upper Midwestern and regular Midwestern. I'm also wondering what it is all the people on the left half of our country speak...do the Southwest and Northwest not have their own unique dialects? I'm sniffing bias... And probably expending more brain power over this than the creator of the quiz intended.
