Followup on geography strategy for Kerry

First, I should have pointed out that the Dispatch story is actually the first of a series.

Also, I've been reminded by a reader that the Plain Dealer actually beat the Dispatch with it's link name"Five Ohio's" series from earlier this summer.

But whether it's five regions or six, both papers make contributions to the discussion. While the PD does a great job of laying out the history and demographics of different parts of the state, the Dispatch (based on the first article) takes the next step of putting it in a coherent winning political strategy.

Finally, I don't know much about Darrell Rowland's background, but Hallett's instincts are probably pretty good since he worked for small-town newspapers in northwest Ohio before working for the Blade and the Dispatch.
