It's nice to hear good things about Cleveland, Joanne. Coming from Detroit, I have always thought of Cleveland as Detroit's sister city. I'm glad Cleveland hasn't met the same fate Detroit met. Both Cleveland and Detroit have wonderful architecture, and both cities have great potential. Sounds like Cleveland is following that potential. Detroit is still trying.

You asked about the Spaw Shrine in Bremen? Well, for a ten-mile radius all around, the highways are covered with road kill (I'm sure Spaw'd have something to say about THAT). As one approaches the Shrine, the streets are paved with brick. And the Shrine is surrounded by beautiful, comfortable-looking homes. And as I, in trepidation, approached the Shrine unannounced, the front door opened and Spaw very casually said, "Joe Offer, what the hell are you doing here?" I was going to make this a big surprise, but he turned the tables on me and made it seem like this was something that happened to him every day.

I miss him.

I get a chuckle out of Janie mentioning the Akron Civic Theater after I'd been cracking about Garrison Keillor being in DT Cleveland, because that very venue was the last place I saw him live. Think it might have been a book/NPR tour, not PHC and I remember it was being recorded for Voice of America. I got to sing "Tell me why" with Keillor ( and 9,999 other folks) on VOA. Very cool part of the show was the huge organ that rose up out of the stage floor while being played.

There wasn't much of I-77 finished in those days, though, so was a bit longer drive and when the shows were midweek, would arrive at work the next morning a bit ragged. But you could do it in a flash today, Mr. Joe - and see some of the West Virginia Appalachian Plateau on the way.

Mr. Red, I think you are onto something. That Centre County bit probably does throw things off a tad -then it got even more complicated when Penn State up and insisted on breaking away and acquired a 'University Park' address and zip code. Distorted the vortex even more.

And then there is the reality that State College is not particularly on the way to anywhere other than State College. Center (Centre?) of it's own parallel universe? Must be the Quaker influence - being held to the light so much and all 'thet there.'

There's a Spaw shrine? Gotta be more interesting than the Pei-pointy Rock Hall. Is there a display of inventive invective?

Akron is too sad right now, but if you just mosey 'round it to the park parts of the Cuyahoga Valley (and the source waters as paddled by Pete Seeger and his college buddy Congressman Siberling) it is worth the navigation. There is so little TO find in Youngstown, so it's very easy to bypass.

Cleveland, however...much different story. Was amused to hear lavish praise of Cleveland and Cleveland natives from Garrison Keillor who is broadcasting PHC from Playhouse Square downtown tonight.

Fortunately, the wicked night of hail and wild wind was a one day wonder & it'll be more seasonable this week. I won't have to locate m'self in Siberia on the Heights just yet!

Poor Joe. Has years of living out in California robbed you of any geographic savvy? Tell me it ain't so! If you ever make northern Ohio part of your ramblings, I'll be glad to help you find your way around to places of interest of a cultural, musical, Catholic, or scenic nature. I'll even round up some local singing sorts! You can walk from here to the Shaker lakes, and the museum of the North Union Shakers.

I can sympathize with being befuddled in Pennsylvania, at least Pittsburgh. I know a California lass who moved to that city who wrote a song - "you can't get there from here" about the trials of getting around a city that needs a 3D map and lots of one way arrows.

Surely taking some odd routes has exposed you to some interesting sights and/ or cuisines?

"that spelling of centre " Oh... cen-tree. We say cen-ter and spell it like we pronounce it. ;>)

Joe... as I said, Pennsylvania has this series of curves built into the topography, so that even when you aim in one direction, you end up being shuttled off to the side. You gotta give up a 'sense of direction' and go by highway signs & maps. In much of Kansas you can go by dead reckoning, but not in Penn. (I had to find Johnstown a few years ago, going counter to those natural curves. It was interesting)

Joe, Pennsylvania was never intended to exist at all.

New York was to stretch all the way to the Ohio border, but Bill Penn decided that he needed to name something after himself. So, in league with Oliver Hazard "Don't Give Up The Ship" Perry, he connived to include a state between New York and Ohio -- and only 15 miles wide from the Lake Erie high water mark. Then they stretched the thing south to the borders of New Jersey and Maryland, completely ignoring the Intent Of Congress in the act creating it, and telling a very surprised Congress that the distance was, in fact, only 15 miles from the Lake Erie high water mark for that year. It was only because the delegates from Virginia stood up to this blatant land theft that there is now a border with (what is now) West Virginia.

But these caprices cost, and in stretching the state they inadvertently twisted a good part of it out of our normal space-time.

It is therein that your problem lies.

I can't help you find Mudcat Central. I can tell you something about Pennsylvania Station not being in Pennsylvania. Every time I've boarded a train in RI bound for New York City and listened to the announcement of stops the train will make, Penn Station is included, and at least one other passenger will ask in a panicky voice, "Doesn't this train stop in New York City?" And I suspect that happens on trains bound to NY from other places--unless the train stops at Grand Central.

Damn. I typed a long explanation and the message disappeared...probably in Pennsylvania.

Here's the deal: I have an unusually strong sense of direction, and I usually always have the feeling that I know where I am. Without a map, I can find my way to most major cities in the U.S., and I've visited all but four states and visited Pennsylvania many, many times. But there are some places in this world where I just can't get oriented, and then I'm lost and have to glue myself constantly to a map. Egypt is one of those places - that damn river has the nerve to flow North! Connecticut and much of New England can also throw me off, because the Sound and the ocean are mostly to the south, when common sense and grammar school geography tell me they should be to the east.

And then there's Pennsylvania. It seems like such a simply-designed state. It would be a perfect rectangle if the Delaware River were straighter. I've been to all those Pennsylvania cities I've mentioned except for State College, so one would think I should be able to find my way anywhere in the state. But I always get lost there, and I can't understand why.

Ohio is similar, but not as bad. I just can't find Akron.

Does this phenomenon strike any of the rest of you, or am I the only disorientated person here?

About where the recent blimp accident happened. Which, to my mind, could not have been coincidental with the location of Mudcat Central. I believe it was the Bavarian Illuminati's elite Schwanenritterkorps who owned the blimp and were attempting to take possession of MC Central (a/k/a MCC or MC2) for the nefarious purposes of their Masters.

Joe,Joe,Joe... *I* can point to State College on a map. ...and I have been there.

The real problem with physically navigating Pennsylvania is that much of the state is weirdly configured.

Pennsylvania may be divided into more than a dozen distinct physiographic regions, most of which extend in curved bands from east to south.

" Pennsylvania is a near-rectangular state, ..."... but, as noted above, there are few straight lines in it.
However... all roads lead to the world's largest flea market in Gilbertsville ..(well, as soon as you navigate several bridges and weird curves)

Michael, as you and Topsie and probably somebody else(s) mentioned, the address is a P.O. box. These are difficult, perhaps even impossible, to live in. No running water or electricity, for one thing. State College is a real place it seems, even if Joe can't find it with a map.

While Max obviously has a mailbox there, I suspect he lives in a castle tower that only exists in this space-time continuum some of the time. I can't prove it, though.

40,000 people is larger than many towns in California, Joe. To whit: Hayfork, Amador City, Dorris, Angels Camp, El Segundo, Yreka, Ripon, Galt, Nevada City, Montague, Commerce, Industry, Donner, Chowchilla, Claremont, French Gulch, and many others too numerous to mention. Even Vernon has fewer than 40,000 people. There are places with fewer than Vernon, too: Prairie City, Quartzburg, Roachville, and Canebrake, for instance.

But Mudcat Central: After much research, I found that it and the servers are located in an old, well cared for, coal mine in Centralia, Pennsylvania. Entry is, of course, restricted, but a tracert (or traceroute in Unix) will give you the data you need to find the entrance. The password is "MOAB" and the countersign is "Khandu." Then entry "chmod 777" on the keypad and the door will ope.

I fear there is a real problem here though, it is all to do with the spelling of centre - (which we all know that is the right and proper sequence of letters). Wrong spelling and the SatNav gets confused Joe!

And does the phone number not give a geographical clue or is it an answer machine/redirect service? Or are phone codes no longer guaranteed to be geographical? Or am I assuming something about mobile/cell phone numbers that only apply in Europe?

None of which gets us nearer.

Bill, Bill, Bill. It's not that these people don't exist when they're in Maryland or DC or the like. What happens is that when they go to Pennsylvania, it's like the Twilight Zone. They disappear into the spookiness. I did blow my punch line by confusing State College with College Station, but my point is that State College is a fairly well-known Pennsylvania town (although the population is only about 40,000). State College is just one of many well-known Pennsylvania towns that nobody can find. Pennsylvania is a near-rectangular state, so one would think things would be easy to find there, but don't be deceived. Pennsylvania is a black hole.

And nearby is Ohio, another black hole. I like to think I've been all over Ohio, but I can't point to a map and show you were Akron is. Same with Pennsylvania. I know I should know where State College is, but I sure can't point to it on a map.
It's all very suspicious....
