You should know something about Ohio

Round on both ends

Having relatives on the west coast and in south Florida made me feel less than exited to be a young new resident of the Buckeye state. Soon after moving I recall the shock of seeing an obese woman who needed 3 chairs to support her epic derriere.

Early on I saw the genuine quality of Midwestern people, it started in elementary school. My fourth-grade classmate Jason was terminally ill, but we didn't hear about it until he was too sick to attend class. He was told if he made a list they'd arrange for him to be visited by any one celebrity. Number 1 Mr. T. wrote an apology that he couldn't since he was contracted to wrestle in Europe. Neil Armstrong did agree and visited him before it was too late. One day, I came into class and we had a sub, but the teacher was also there, with an exquisitely detailed model of the Apollo 11 under glass. The "sub" was there for Jason with a message, she said he was sorry to leave us. He hoped we would like his signed scale model lunar lander from Mr. Armstrong which he kept by his bed until the last.

Ohio supplies the USA with perhaps more smart people, more Presidents, Inventors, and Astronauts than any other state (absolute or relative to population, or both!)

Round on Both Ends And High in the Middle. O-hi-O

Columbus sits in the heart of the heartland state, with the aptly-named High Street running through the city, where the Ohio State University resides chief among many Ohio educational institutions. Facts about Ohio:

  • Makes inventors
  • Astronauts
  • Presidents
  • Food
  • Cars
  • A great place to call home.
