Judging from the CentralPA Dopefest thread, there are quite a few Pennsylvania Dopers on this board. I thought y’all might be able to assist me with an article I am writing called “Six Things You Don’t Know About Pennsylvania.” I’m hoping to submit it to the Black Table for their irreverent series about the states.
Do you have any suggestions for unique, not-well-known facts (or even misconceptions) about the state of Pennsylvania and her folk? Some things I’m considering:
PA is a junk food mecca (Hershey’s, potato chips, pretzels, cheese steaks)
Something about our coal miner heritage
Our roads suck
Three of our cities have served as U.S. capitols
We use our postal abbreviation (P-A) in casual conversation
