    It's a comment that we have heard frequently from visitors to our area.

    Our response is that, to us, it is the "Middle of Somewhere"

    Responding to a sense of place and feeling a kinship with something that has changed a lot during my lifetime for many of my fellow citizens.

    Many seem rootless and disconnected.

      ... as it was a comment on North Dakota.

      It's a very different thing for me to land in a small airport, drive east along a road for two hours (seeing nothing but grasslands, cattle, and missile silos), come to an intersection, and then drive north for another two hours (seeing nothing but more grasslands, cattle, and missile silos).

      In any case, I apologize. I honestly didn't mean any disrespect or insult by it. There are plenty of places in my home state of Maine that I would also deem "The Middle of Nowhere".
