The world is experiencing an upheaval the likes of which has not been seen since the Industrial Revolution. Industry was good to Ohio. The Buckeye State went from frontier backwater to major economic center one of the most populous states in the country in less than a century. Whether Ohio will return to the top of the heap or continue its slide bottomwards along with the collapse of 20th-century-style industry is largely a result of what we do with one thing: education.

Meteorites or "shooting stars" are not uncommon. We have two or three good shows of them every year. Had we been alive and aware in 1833, however, we'd have seen a show of them we'd never have forgotten. The early morning hours of November 13, 1833, were ever after known as The Night The Stars Fell. As early as two or three o'clock in the morning some people saw the start of a brilliant meteorite show which reached its zenith at four or five o'clock, and of course disappeared at daybreak. It was witnessed in most of the eastern states such as Ohio, Michigan, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, New York, and in Alabama and Tennessee. There was eventually a report of this extreme show being seen in some parts of France. The sky was never darkened or even dimmed during this time. It has been estimated that 10,000 meteors per hour crossed the sky.
