Can't say I've much seen the term "Michiganite." Either/or Michigander/Michiganian.

Or either Yoopie if you're from the Upper Peninsula, or Troll if you live in the mitten.

Make that "yooper" Faldage. I am going to meet six of them this weekend at Burnside State Park in Kentucky. And about ten or so from lower Michigan will be there as well. I call them "Michanigans" -- which they are -- but I'll ask them what they call themselves.

Edit: Oh yeah, I just remembered what they call me. They call me "that damn Aladamnbamian".

It hurts my feelings.

Yepper, you're right, Milo. They look like your kind of people.

It was from a Yooper polka band that was on St. Paul Sunday one fine Sunday a while back that I learned that schottisches and reggae were just a split heart beat apart.
