posting this, because I did post a long, irritated rant about it. The blog I saw the “melon head” post about sent me this.
I saw your note. Yes, I believe “melon head” is a very improper, and also insensitive, term to use. I did not mean to offend. Unfortunately, that is something I came across on Wikipedia. It sounds like most of the stories from Michigan are just urban legends. The Wikipedia page mentions something about an institution that burned down, though people from the area say it didn’t exist. I do wonder how the legend started though. I’ll have to look into it.
