What? Nothing about the Cincinnati Stingers who played in the World Hockey Association from 1975 until the league folded in 1979?

Kidding. Just kidding.

I thought one of the nicknames was Birthplace of Presidents. If not for the Wright Brothers question I would never have thought of the correct answer.

Yes, I have heard both "birthplace of presidents" and "birthplace of astronauts." The presidents one is rarer in my experience, probably because Ohio is still second to Virginia in presidents, and because most of Ohio's presidents, frankly, were not memorable. And those who were memorable were memorable for the wrong reasons.

"Birthplace of aviation" has is on a lot of Ohio license plates. There's a feud between us and North Carolina whose motto is "first in flight" because the Wright brothers were from Ohio and built their planes there, but traveled to North Carolina to test it.

I think the motto is "Birthplace of Modern Presidents" or something similar since most of the presidents from Virginia served during the 18th and early 19th centuries. Also kept trying birthplace of "flight" instead of "aviation". Grrrrr....

Technical point, but not all of the students killed at Kent State were protesters. Sandra Scheuer was merely walking between classes. Some reports state that was also the case with William Schroeder. Allison Krause and Jeffrey Miller were protesting.

The young man shown lying face down in the famous photo from that day was Jeffrey Miller, who had been shot and died instantly.
