Plains-spoken in 'Nebraska' ★★★
The small and medium towns in the Midwest and the Great Plains region aren't so different from any other part — rural, urban or in between — of the United States. Half the people don't talk much, while the other half chatter to fill the silence. It's a time-honored cliche according to Garrison Keillor, but there's truth in it.
