Hmm, maybe not a Californian, but a Midwesterner is definitely a
"Yankee" to me.  I think that the "West" is probly exempt from "Yankee"
in my usage.  But Northwest is definitely the "most Yankee" area.  I
guess it's sort of a graded quality, a New Yorker is more Yankee-ish
than an Illinoisan, and an Illinoisan more than a Californian.
