Local Poet

"Asperger" is a commenter on blogs on the website.  I don't know who he or she is, but I was taken by his/her recent creation.

His latest piece at the bottom of one of my local columns is his summary of Licking County:

its a happy home
with funny farms
and chirping birds
and people in clean white coats
I'm not sure I get all the references, especially "funny farms," but the basketweavers is an obvious reference to Longaberger which has its basket HQ in Newark.  It's likely the people in clean white coats is a reference to the manufacturers, such as Boeing, which operate in a clean room environment.
Thanks, Asperger.  I think.
