Kezia Vanmeter Sproat wrote about the MND performance in Chillicothe OH,
and quoted this:

I went to see "The Patriot" last week, and this reminded me of a scene
in which Gen. Cornwallis is telling his dastardly subordinate colonel to
cool it on the atrocities against the colonists.  After all, sez he,
when this mess is over we'll want to trade with them.  The colonel
intimates that he's angling for a plum at that time, namely OHIO!
