It seems to me that the following region names are rather pedantic.
Is the word Region actually used for these areas or would
be better? Even the Missouri article hints that the region version is not the most common usage for these areas. I am thinking of moving the regions and wondered if anyone else had any comments about these names. -- Huttite 06:43, 9 Jan 2006 (EST)
Comment from Missouri
I have lived in Missouri all my life, and not to make a rude comment or anything, but this article is truly bad. Someone put Bolivar and Bowling Green as major cities. Bolivar's population is about 5-7000. Cape Girardeau, St. Joseph, and Hannibal (home of Mark Twain, one of Missouri's most famous residents) aren't listed. I rewrote the cities.
Also, Jefferson City may be on the edge of the Ozarks technically (so is St. Louis), but I don't know anybody who lives here that would call it "in the Ozarks". I think the whole region thing needs to be scrapped and started over again. I know this is what's on the state's tourism website, but to me:
This actually leaves a small area south of Kansas City unclassified (it's not part of the Ozarks), maybe all of that could be called "Western Missouri"? If possible, I'll borrow a map from Wikipedia and see if I can do this on a map.Rt66lt 13:36, 12 Jan 2006 (EST)
I went ahead and changed that section to the areas listed above. When I can get a map done, I'll add that. I thought I would comment on it before I went and made a change like this. Also, since the northwest Missouri, etc. have links, should "St. Louis Area" and "Kansas City Area" have a seperate article from St. Louis and Kansas City?Rt66lt 13:58, 12 Jan 2006 (EST)
I'd really like to see a citation on this: "Branson - 2nd most visited place in the U.S."; I have a very serious disbelief in this. Thanks! Ray
