Nebraska. Y'all been there?
I have a few times. You have Omaha (Warren Buffett), you have Lincoln (the only non-conservative place in the state), and you've got 80,000 people in Lincoln, cheering for a college football team that apparently doesn't cheat enough in academics and recruiting to be an annual national championship contender. And you've got a lot of corn. Anything else? Not really. (I want to hate a lot harder on Nebraska, but the people make it hard. I'm serious. They're so nice. It's kind of enraging. Hmmm, on the other hand, they're a little too nice...)
Oh! Sorry. We're here because Nebraska has actually given the world a lot. Well, three things specifically: Kool-Aid, the McRib, and TV dinners. You kidding me?! Oh, Nebraska. Maybe you're alright after all.
[Editor's Note: This here's a small mini-series we're starting—every week or so, we choose a state and showcase the best inventions from that state. Why Nebraska first? Um, did you see that they created the McRib? Exactly.]
