Humorist, writer and satirist
Jean Shepherd once offered the following description of his fictional hometown in northwest Indiana

"Hohman, Ind., is located in the northwestern corner of the state, where the state line ends abruptly in the icy, detergent-filled waters of that queen of the Great Lakes, Lake Michigan," he wrote in In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash. "It clings precariously to the underbody of Chicago like a barnacle clings to the rotting hulk of a tramp steamer."
