See especially posts 15 and 18:

Trump's comment about Wright Brothers may offend some Ohioans

Does North Carolina's claim to first flight offend Dayton residents?

I often wondered how southeast Ohio, let alone Ohio in general, would have Thomas Edison represent Ohio in the Capitol's Statuary Hall rather than the Wright brothers. Edison was merely born in Ohio and didn't even grow up here. James Garfield himself would probably recognize the preeminence of the Wright brothers' accomplishments, as each state is limited to two representatives. And 7 Ohioans have served as President, and, due to his assassination, Garfield likely does not rank among the most important, even though he may have bee the most admirable of the lot.

Why is it only now that this is an issue? Oh, because it's Donald Trump.

No one seemed to have a problem with NC's ''First in Flight'' license plates all these past several years. Why haven't the Dayton media and politicians, let alone Ohio politicians pick up on the NC's license plates?

NC's license plate logo has done more to have people think the first flight was there=the battle for 1st flight claim is over. What's next, Trump said it's partly cloudy when it's actually partly sunny?

Give it a rest.

Hope you see this, friend.

In 1936 Henry Ford hauled the 1903 bicycle shop and the Wright family home up to Michigan. People didn't think very clearly and thought everything of importance was gone except maybe Orville's home.

It takes an Act of Congress to do something like create a U.S. national park.

Don't know what you're talking about here. Sorry.

Again, why didn't anyone complain about NC's license plates?

1. To Whom? And, why? Dayton's motto for decades was "Birthplace of Aviation."

Nobody knows that Dayton motto. NC's license plates ''trumped'' it on this point with its First In Flight slogan. First in Flight way catchier than Birthplace of Aviation. Dayton should have moved on NC about it but now that Trump is involved everyone is harping about it.

Snooze you lose, Dayton.

That's debatable.

Also, Birthplace of Aviation was on Ohio license plates for ages.
I'd be a fan of bringing it back, in larger font.

I grew up in NE Ohio and knew that motto as a kid. We had to learn that, and the history behind it, in Ohio History in 7th grade. Are you even from Ohio?

Also, you could ask my husband whether "no one complains" about the stupid NC license plates. He only has to hear me mutter and give a five minute lecture on it every time I see one, and we don't even live inOhio right now. It's so inaccurate it's not even funny. There is absolutely no significance to a flight lasting less than the time it takes me to chew a piece of double mint gum into tastelessness. Having a piece of geography where ONE test was made, even the first, is nothing. The significance is in the invention itself, the place where it was created, and the place where not only that model but later, actually successful models were tested. And the phrase "First in Flight" isn't even accurate. It should be "First in Powered Flight", since the Wright brother performed other flight experiments in other places. And once they had their good test flight, they never went back. Tell me how that makes NC a significant place for aviation. The motto might as well be "We Have Great Wind!"
