Governor of Ohio Likes Hamburgers

I recently received a nice email from the new owner of Miamisburg's Hamburger Wagon, Jack Sperry, thanking me for including the Wagon in my book. He also told me that on a recent visit to the area, the Ohio gov Ted Strickland stopped by for a bag of the wagon's famous deep-fried sliders. Jack knew the gov was coming so he had an apron made in his honor (see above, center). He told me he also handed him a copy of Hamburger America (documented in this article). I'm glad Stickland now has a copy of the book (thanks Jack) because between Miamisburg and the governor's mansion there are at least 3 more great burger joints to visit! Ohio is definitely a burger-proud state.
