"The three most important things in Ohio are jobs, jobs and jobs" Gov. James Rhodes I have heard this quote, attributed to our former governor, paraphrased several times recently. Rhodes may have his detractors, but you can't argue with his logic: in 1967, during his first term, the unemployment rate in Ohio was 3 percent after $2.1 billion in new industry was brought into the state the previous year. Those of us old enough to remember those days may have forgotten that this was before Ohio had a personal or corporate income tax. And it was before Ohio began its fetid attempts to rival the federal government by building a massive and costly state bureaucracy. And what is Gov. Stickland's proffered solution for double-digit Buckeye unemployment? Get everybody to stay in Ohio and spend their money by gambling it on slot machines and casinos.
