While I’m here in Columbus, Ohio, to attend the national PTA convention (we’re exhibiting a new product here), I’ve been exploring the city a bit.
Can’t say I see a ton of these in downtown Vancouver:
Is it just me or do Ohioans not count too well?
The Ohio Supreme Court is a great new-old building … old, but refinished recently, without changing its essential character:

A city without water is an impoverished city, in my opinion. This is COSI, or the Columbus Science Center, from across the Scioto River. The lands around the COSI are part of Genoa Park. Genoa … Columbus … hmmm …
A close-up, after I crossed the bridge. Note that this used to be a high school … Center High School. Wow – what a building for a school.
Yet another COSI shot. A seriously cool old building … I wonder what it would have been like to be a student there, 60 years ago. The architecture here is very Genoese, come to think of it …

Perhaps I was fortunate to get across ….
I have to say, Columbus has a lot of character. I like this city.
