Ohio- The birthplace of aviation and Lifesavers candy. In fact, the Mott drug store (currently the home of the Garfield Historical Society here in Garrettsville) was where they were first sold.

Also the place where The election was rigged to Let Buscho and his motley crew win. And also the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Also home of the worst Governor in the nation currently. We also have a Mayor that thinks, "adopting a trash can" will produce revenue. (Cleveland)

Hey. LeBron James is from Ohio. I mean, he's not presidential, but he did sign a $90 million contract with Nike. Just thought I'd toss that in there. Also, my aunts live in Cleveland...where Halle Berry was born....who portrayed Dorothy Dandridge in a 1999 telemovie who is from Cleveland....

It's not as cool as the six degrees of Kevin Bacon. I tried and stumbled.

That was a river, the cyahauga (spelled horribly) and it probably improved the smell.

In Cleveland it's illegal to catch mice without a hunting license

Cincinnati Reds were America's first professional baseball team

The ProFootball Hall of Fame is located in Canton

The inventor of chewing gum W.F. Semple and the creator of hot dog (Harry M. Stevens) were both from Ohio.

Except for the mice thing, imagine the world without Ohio...

All this reminds me of the Pretenders' song "Ohio" where lead singer Chrissie Hines laments the condition of her home state. Of course it's hipper than John Denver's song about Toledo being boring. You sure Cleveland is the poorest city in the nation Pyro? All the news I've seen shows that for major metropolitan areas, Philadelphia was in the worst shape. Also the upstate New York area is in pitiful shape. Anyway, interesting stuff.
