About the BloggerPatrick Donohue is the proudest Indiana native you're likely to find. Seriously. No one is prouder to be from a state that so many people know relatively so little about than he is. Patrick is a native of Terre Haute and a graduate of the Ernie Pyle School of Journalism at Indiana University. Knowing this, you might think he’d be a huge John "Cougar" Mellencamp fan, a man considered by some to be the Hoosier State's poet laureate. But you'd be wrong. In a major way. | Email Patrick

I never envisioned myself living in the South.
And I certainly didn't imagine myself liking it this much.
Having spent most of my childhood in the tundra-like landscape of western New York and my adolescence and college years in Indiana, I had grown accustomed to a certain kind of lifestyle. One that didn't include sweet tea, a grammatically problematic conjunction that combined "you" and "all," and temperatures that make a sauna feel drafty.
