People who think small towns are uncool are crazy. Kinsman, OH (shout out!) is proof of the opposite. They have Clarence Darrow Day, and now Edmond Hamilton Day. In the future, there should also be a Leigh Brackett Day, with The Empire Strikes Back on a big screen in the town square all day and night long. 🙂
