Friday night scene on the midway at the 167th Ohio State Fair. Lemonade and curly fries.

Ohio Union historic doors

I've had occasion to be at the Ohio Union a few times recently. One of my favorite things in the building is tucked away in the SW corner of the 3rd floor. Doors from all of the Ohio Unions. L to R: original Ohio Union (now Hale Hall), 1910: Women's Union (now Pomerene Hall), 1922: late 20th century Ohio Union (demolished 2006), 1951: and current Ohio Union, 2010. Behind the doors are panels with photos and images from each of the buildings.

Skulls of Duncan

Halloween skulls and much more in a front yard on Duncan St. Old North Columbus remains a sanctuary of quirkiness, idiosyncrasy, and free expression in a city that strives desperately to be bland, beige, noncontroversial, inoffensive, and--above all else--developer-friendly.

Indianola home haunt

Year-in, year-out, this house at Indianola and Duncan delivers with its enthusastic and over-the-top front yard haunt.
