What Indiana lacks in brains it makes up for in wheat. Isn't that the state motto?--Dave

LOL. No, Dave, it's actually "The Crossroads of America." The official explanation is that Indianapolis got the designation due to the fact that several interstates go through It and connect IN to much of the rest of the country. But allow me a more relevant personal explanation of the motto that illustrates IN's politics.....

We have prodigious production of hogs and cattle. These animals cross farmers' roads to eat field pasture and corn. After they eat their fills, naturally they have to do lots of #2's. A lot of _h_t is produced that stinks as bad as the anti-gay marriage amendment I described in my OP.
