    Is the SE there already gone? Or does the SE not get an SE byline? There's a story on their website of what looks like an American Legion game, but the byline says just staff writer.

    Ohio cops are assholes, especially if you don't have an Ohio license plate on your vehicle.

    Ohio cops are awful. I will happily confirm that.

    I love the name Wapakoneta. Not sure what it means, but it's fun to say.

    If you think the cops on I-75 are bad in Ohio, try the staties near Mansfield. Biggest speed trap in the state.

    This thread is worthless without pics ... of the Neil Armstrong Air & Space Museum. A required field trip for every NW Ohio schoolchild!

    I wouldn't say any. I never went. I didn't even know it existed. Maybe west central Ohio would be more accurate.

    You've been deprived and should sue your school.
