All it takes is a cheesy plastic decoration to make it all Christmassy. Don't you just have that warm all over feeling?

Can't make lemonade from lemons? Can't make a purse from a sow's ear?
Well, here's a beautiful rainbow for you. Just don't mind the foreground.

I had a little extra time before a return flight from Cincinnati (which was cancelled, but that's another post), so I remembered there was an observation area where you could park and watch the planes come and go, which I like to do.
And there was this sign. The synapses started firing.
Somebody in 1978 decided to erect a marker noting the "Center of Population" on what is now a major airport.
Are there signs just like this throughout the country noting the "Center of Population" for each 10 year milestone? What would these look like on a map?
What if the CoP doesn't move in 10 years? Do they put up two signs?
How much taxpayer money went into casting this sign?
What sign lost its funding in favor of this sign?
How many school buses full of third graders have stopped at this sign?
How do you figure out a CoP anyway? Do you stick a pin in map for each citizen and....ouch, my head just started hurting.
What poor bastard drew the short straw for that assignment?
Do you have questions of your own? Leave a comment.

I had the great pleasure tonight of being able to dine once again at DiFabio's Casapela in Madisonville, Kentucky. I first wrote about DiFabio's in March of last year, and I am delighted to report that nothing at all has changed just off Main Street. The choice tonight was a grouper filet, delicately breaded and served in a white wine sauce with capers. I got my alfredo fix with a side of bow tie pasta. The highlight of the meal was a slice of Laura's Pecan Cheesecake which, apologies for the hyperbole, was the best slice of cheese cake I have ever had in my entire life.
As I was finishing up, Pete DiFabio stopped by and recognized me (even though it was at least a year since I was last there), and then told me how his restaurant was a finalist in a competition of Kentucky restaurants. Naturally I pledged to mobilize my readership (you are legion) and hereby urge you all to click on the link and vote for DiFabio's in the category of Exploring Kentucky Award.
Don't feel guilty about voting even if you've never eaten there, or even like Italian for that matter. Trust me, this place is great. Go vote.
