Sen. Coleman on Flyover Country

Congressional Record: Flyover Country

Sen. Norm Coleman [R-MN]: Let me focus on an issue of concern to me. I represent the State of Minnesota. They call it the "flyover country." They may say the same thing about Colorado on occasion. I saw a New Yorker's view of the world. No offense to my colleagues from New York. It is New York, Florida, L.A., maybe Chicago was in between. I didn't see Denver or St. Paul. There are smaller towns on there, but they are on the map and they are important.

William Jennings Bryan once said:

Burn down our cities and leave our farmland and the cities will rise up again like magic, but burn down our farms and grass will grow up in the streets of every city in America.
