Did some more traveling on Ohio’s back roads last weekend… In Lisbon, Ohio, I stumped at the Steel Car Trolley Diner. I also noticed the menu featured a Cleveland Browns Burger, as it featured a Ben Rothils’burger’ (Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback). Lisbon is about halfway between the Browns Stadium and Pittsburgh’s Stadium. So the restaurant proprietor seemed to be playing it both ways. Not unlike, well, many politicians. And speaking of politicians, the priest at St. George Church in Lisbon said during a Sunday homily that the predominant feature of modern politicians is to promise they’ll do something(s) for the voters. When, instead, he said sound spiritual principle is that the politicians should be exhorting the people to do something(s) for their country. I mean that seems the Gospel message, doesn’t it? After Mass, I told the priest our platform does just what he (and John Kennedy) was talking about… I also stopped at the McDonald’s in Upper Sandusky early Saturday morning. I approached what looked like the “brain trust” table (you know the one) and passed out some campaign cards. I also asked for particular concerns. One farmer said he was concerned about the vote this November to make Ohio the fifth state in the country to legalize the use of marijuana for recreational purposes. I said me too. Do we, for instance, want more impaired drivers, more impaired parents, more impaired people in general…? What’s more, the demand for drugs on this side of the fence drives a good deal of the cartel violence on the other side of the fence. So if we ramp up even more demand, there will probably be more violence. Also, people smoke to get “high.” There are few “social smokers,” if you will. Note: While in Lisbon, I stayed at the Travelers Motel on Old Rte. 30. It was 50 bucks a night. And as president, I’d stay at the Travelers Motel on Old Rte. 30 — and take the savings to spend down the national debt!
