Midwesterners in the News: The Pope's Visit

INDIANA & St LOUIS (Sept 26) - Jim Gaffigan, comedian and Indiana-native, performed recently for Pope Francis. The Pope's office reached out to Gaffigan through Cardinal Timothy Dolan -- who grew up in St Louis. Though both now live in New York, Gaffigan told the New York Times he was surprised: "Dolan knows who I am, which is weird. He's the most normal, nice, Midwestern guy. He's like me. He's always eating when I see him. He's always got chips."
