Date: Thu, 3 Nov 1994 23:16:30 -0600 From: Joan Livingston-Webber Subject: up/down state; in/out state I have been told about, though I haven't actually heard it said, that in Nebraska the Omaha-Lincoln area (occasionally referred to as Linoma) is "instate" and everywhere else is "outstate" and I was also told that it would not be well received to refer to the panhandle as "outstate" to someone from there. I haven't inquired further, and all of the natives I know are natives of Omaha anyway. -- Joan Livingston-Webber webber[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] "What gets better is the precision with which we vex each other." -Clifford Geertz
