Your Sunday Boring Postcard from Michael5000

Black Hand Tunnel, near Newark, Ohio

In earliest recorded times Black Hand Rock, on the bank of the Licking River near Newark, Ohio, bore the outline of a giant human hand, reputedly of Indian origin and identified in legend with the blighted romance of a tribal chieftain. A highway now traverses what was the first electric railway tunnel in the United States.

Provenance: Unsure.

Is no one going to speak up for Newark, Ohio? As an Ohioan of many years' standing, I feel I should....if only I knew where Neward was. (I know where Norwalk--of virus fame-- is located.)

Oh, why-oh-why-oh-why-oh, did I leave O-hi-O?.......
