Gary, Indiana is an industrial city that spawned the Jackson family (yes, Michael, LaToya, etc. are from Gary, not Detroit). Gary is also featured and honored with a song in the musical "The Music Man". Gary is an inevitable drive through city on the way from Detroit to Chicago. The sky seems a little less blue in Gary, it is concrete, smokestacks, and sulfur smells. I have never stopped in Gary, though I've been through it on I-94 more times than I remember. The bathroom and/or hunger pangs can always wait.
