buckeye industrial complex

Thinking about the music of Johnny Paycheck recently, I looked up background info about his life:  he was from Greenfield, Ohio.

I was born in Ohio, too:  I lived in the northeastern part of the state.  Johnny Paycheck's birthplace, Greenfield, is in southern Ohio.

When you Google paintings of southern Ohio, you start to hit a pattern...  Peaceful, sunny, scenic Rural Settings...

That might not be southern Ohio's whole story, but they are nice pictures.
