Northwest still has a hub in MEM. It's not even just a regional hub either... they have flights to DC, NY, and the New England cities, and also to PHX, DEN, LAS, and the West coast.
Perhaps we can soon add USAirways at PIT.
How about Delta's mainline hub at DFW? Due to competition from American, it's mostly CRJ's operated by ASA, Comair, and Skywest. Mainline Delta only goes to the big cities on or near the West coast, the major Florida cities, and the Delta hubs (ATL, CVG, SLC), with very few others in between. They don't even have widebodies there anymore (or if they still do have a few now, they won't in a few months).

Oh yeah, that reminds me. US Airways Express had a regional hub at MSY. Among other Southeastern cities, JAN, my hometown, got daily Beech 1900 service from there. That was discontinued about 2 or 3 years ago.
