Wednesday, June 23 Fargo was filmed mostly around Minneapolis. The glacier that formed the land area that is North Dakota was the Wisonsin Glacier. The best flour made comes from North Dakota wheat, but it's called Minnesota Patent. Montana is even trying to claim the gumbo title. Their only joke is, well, judge for yourself:
"A South Dakotan, proud of his state's warmer climate, proposed that his state be named "Cota" and North Dakota be called "Over-Cota".
But North Dakotans are not a resentful bunch. While Seattle might fret about being considered this or that, Fargo is as proud as can be of Roger Marris. I'd rather be from Fargo, where you don't have to strangle 37 people or become a multibillionaire to get noticed. For me, the people of North Dakota define the meaning of hospitality and welcome to strangers. Thank you. Special thanks to the congregation of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church.
