Average Joe Buckeye Blitz cont. We did a whistle-stop event in Chillicothe, Ohio today. I told Chillicothe Gazette City Editor Lori McNelly that: “I’m an average American citizen who’s decided to run for president.” She asked me what I would propose for an economically depressed Ross County. I said Atwood, Kansas has a citizen’s benevolent fund to help neighbors in need, city projects short on tax money, schools that need additional money… Atwood has 1,500 people and the fund is currently at a phenomenal $1 million. I would also look to more local church initiatives to help the disadvantaged, as they have in nearby Bourneville (pop. 300). At another whistle-stop today there, I noticed a sign at a street corner: Food Pantry: If in need, call… Christian Union Church. From Bourneville we went to Bainbridge, Ohio, home of the nation’s first “Dental Museum.” It is at the site of the late John Harris M.D.D.D.S., who had the first American School of Instruction on Dental Surgery, circa 1825. Liz and the kids posed for a picture outside, with tooth brushes in hand and over-exaggerated smiles. Note: A sign in the window of a crafts store in downtown Bainbridge read: “I don’t suffer from insanity — I enjoy every minute.” I told Liz I thought that might be a good motto for the campaign. She smiled, even more exaggeratedly.
