    You call those priorities? 

    At the beginning of the 20th century, the road most traveled from West Virginia to Akron and economic hope was State Route 21. Its sister road, coming out of another part of Appalachia and beelining north, though Columbus and on into the
    industrial powerhouse that has been Toledo, is U.S. 23. It's a good road to take when searching for Ohio's political pulse.

    James Drew, The (Toledo) Blade's Columbus bureau chief struck out on Route 23 on Route 23 recently and collected a series of anecdotes from which he reached not so much a conclusion as to whether President Bush is going to win Ohio again and keep Democratic John Kerry from unseating him as a geographical one, which is:

    ``North of Columbus, most people interviewed raised two issues: the economy and the
    U.S. military's continued role in Iraq.

    ``South of Columbus, more people talked about their support for gun rights and their
    opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage.''

    Makes Ohioblog proud to live north of Ohio's equivalent of the Mason-Dixon Line.
