Quoting Utrecht

Mason City....

I took my first civil servant's exam in Mason City after graduating from college. I passed but ol' Prez Nixon placed a freeze on all new federal jobs so moved to Chicago instead. If that isn't impressive enough, Meredith Wilson, who wrote the musical plays The Music Man & The Unsinkable Molly Brown was born in Mason City. He played trombone with John Phillip Souza's band before becoming a playwright.

Oh, Iowa is also the only state who's east and west borders are water - the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers run the length of the state.

I'm guessing on this one... I'll say Idaho and Montana.
