The Midwest is neither sad, nor dreary. Then again, I don't consider having seasons to be dreary weather, and I'm unsure exactly what sort of "accent" Midwesterners have that would be so offensive.
Yes, I would like to know what kind of "accents" us Midwesterners have. I have always thought that we sound like people on tv. In fact, I think I heard somewhere that midwesterners were used in the military radio communications during WWI because most people could understand what they were saying and didn't have the accents of, say, people from the south. I'm from WI, by the way.
