Welcome to the blog!

First detailed post will appear in 24 hours or so. But here's the idea: To post nuggets of dialogue, plot lines and other items from TV shows -- mainly scripted, but I'll take selected reality shows -- in which NE Ohio makes an appearance. Items may also include notes about how comments came to be, and errors in them.

For instance, in the famous "Seinfeld" episode where George came to Akron, my friend and colleague Glenn Gamboa noted that "jumbo jets don't fly into Akron airports very often. ... Firestone doesn't have a board of directors any more. And its parent company, Bridgestone/Firestone Inc., left Akron for Nashville, Tenn., in 1992. ... The room where George met the Firestone board was as big as some closets in the executive suites over on Firestone Parkway."

More to come, although I'm not sure how often I will post. But feel free to suggest items in the comment area.
