Freedom's just another word for several years shorter lifespan.
Hey ho, way to go Ohio.
I haven't read it yet (will after this) but I am curious: for those of us in those damned red states who vote deep blue, don't smoke, and believe in science, I wonder what our collective life expectancy is?
Ta, Dok. I work in a FQHC so no one is ever turned away because of an inability to pay. No wonder we live longer here.
As an Ohioan, it pains me to say the Post report is probably right on the money. Bill Seitz is one of the primary Cro-Magnon Repubs in the Legislature. DeWine is a nice guy who, unfortunately, lets the Legislature walk all over him. However, it's a hopeful sign that cities such as Cincinnati, Columbus and even Dayton are seeing influxes of younger, more progressive people. The key is for the State's citizens to pass the bill that will remove politicians from the redistricting committee so we can possibly have fair, equitable Legislative and Congressional representation.
Is it harsh of to think that anyone who chooses to not buckle up, or their kids, and is hurt in an accident should be given a couple of aspirins and sent home? I sure would not want to be harsh or anything...
I am having a moral quandary here. On one hand, this really sucks for individuals and the people that love them. On the other hand, I don't hate it that far right voters are a shrinking demographic
I wish they'd die faster, tbh. Less of them, less of their votes to fuck shit up for me.
Ohio. Come for the cheap cigarettes. Stay to watch the locals go through their windscreens.
“Crom help us, we believe him. It’s not corruption if you already had terrible ideas”
Think of the poor lobbyists unable to fill their quotas.
Satan:”No! This won’t do! Seitz is already scheduled to fester in the burning pits of Azmagazadon. That’s another seven eons in Foulikia [lake of acid filled with very large thorny intestinal parasites] for You!”
Are there really adults in the US and A who don't wear their seatbelts? Who get in a car and don't automatically just reach for the belt?
There's a Mr. Darwin on line 2 for you.
Sad. Ohio had so much to live for.
Oberlin, orchestras, the Cincinnati Zoo, all those Amish baked goods...I moved away 36 years ago (lost my job there, got a new one out here in the Blue Zone) but will always miss the heart of The Heart of it All. Of memory, at least.
Live by the derp, die by the derp.
Ohio University (mentioned in the article) is a small university in Athens, Ohio, not to be confused with The Ohio State University, which is immensely ginormous and in Columbus. I know and like people from both.
Even more O/T anecdote: Ohio State and U Michigan, along with Dartmouth, Columbia, and Ohio U., jointly operate an observatory on Kitt Peak, Arizona. Ohio State built an instrument for the observatory some years ago that required a special prism that passed blue light, which they sourced from an outfit in Ann Arbor, Michigan, home of the University of Michigan. When they unwrapped the prism, they found a message etched neatly into the end of the prism, out of the optical path: "Go Blue!".
So, the plan is working... good. Let’s keep it that way [rubs hands malevolently and laughs].
Other universities, and I'll bet there are lots of them, have a "The" as a part of their official name. I checked out "Penn State Diploma images" on the google and sure enough on that very formal document it's headed "The Pennsylvania State University" in that font that just might even be called "diploma." It's just that only the cement-heads at THE Ohio State are dumb enough to make a big deal out it. Remember Philip Roth's "Goodbye, Columbus" and Brenda's dunderheaded brother Ron?
