I had no real expectations about Iowa.  I was right.  Oh, there’s corn.  Oh so much corn!  One might even say a field of dreams of corn.  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097351/

Apart from all the corn, everything seems so bland.  There is a definite lack of character, though through no fault of the good people of the state.  Every second person is wearing some shirt of support.  One’s of note:  “Iowa: The California of the Midwest.”  “What happens in the cornfield stays in the cornfield.”  And, my personal favo(u)rite: “Boobies make me smile.”  It may not exactly be about Iowa, but it’s still pretty corny.
