Maine on the Brain

OK, Maine. Stop being a hold out. I'm going for 50 states in 30 days and Maine is one of four holdouts. If I were a Maineite, I wouldn't want to be on the same list with South Dakota and Wyoming. They are fine places, but more well known for their buffaloes and wild Indians. Maine on the other hand protects our northern border from the Canadian hordes.

So Maine, while you are taking a break from your lobster breakfast, I need you to stop by here so I can scratch you off my bucket list. In the mean time I would like to tell the world fun and interesting facts about Maine.

  1. Maine is the least densely populated state east of the Mississippi River.

  2. There are more beavers in Maine than people.

  3. Kennebunkport, Maine is the home to former president George H.W. Bush, the good one. George W (the bad one) would have turned out better had he grown up in Maine.

  4. All Steven King's stories are based on actual events in Maine.

  5. The same is true for all Murder She Wrote episodes, explaining the lack of people in Maine.
  6. Maine is a well-known producer of toothpicks.

  7. Maine is known as the cranberry state.

  8. Maine has 3500 miles of coastline, 6,000 lakes, 40,000 fisherman and only 30 laundramats.

  9. Mount Washington is the highest point east of the Mississippi and the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail.

You can see by this list that Maine is far more interesting than any depopulated midwestern state. A place like Maine should have enough pride to represent themselves in my blog stats. My blog is somehow incomplete with out the vital input I could be receiving from Mainiacs. While cold and bitter it is dear to our hearts and our country would be less for not having Maine in it. Maine, we here at Lost Art of the City, salute you.

To Anonymous,

People should sign their posts if they are going to be snarky, but thanks for the correction.

Mount Washington is in Vermont, but the point of this was not to provide accurate information on Maine, was it?
