Starting election night the echos of "Thank You Ohio" could be heard across the country. After enduring a very long and tiring election season, the people of Ohio came through by delivering the state to President Bush. So the thanks of the nation is well deserved. However, there are many, many more reasons to be thankful for Ohio.

Seven presidents were born in Ohio as well as Thomas Edison, the Wright brothers, and Jesse Owens. Volcunized rubber, chewing gum, the hot dog, cash registers, the airplane, Teflon, Formica and the traffic light were all invented in Ohio. The first labor union and interracial coeducational college were established in Ohio. And 50% of the population of the United States lives within a 500 mile radius of Columbus!
