Columbus, Ohio Trick-or-Treat is October 31, 2012! ... and Dublin, Gahanna, Grandview Heights, Hilliard, Lewis Center, New Albany, Powell, Upper Arlington, Westerville, Worthington and more are "Trick-or-Treating" on October 31, 2012. Back in February 2009 the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) decreed the future of Trick-or-Treat throughout central Ohio. All central Ohio communities do NOT always 'Trick-or-Treat" on Halloween. When Halloween falls on a weekend night the MORPC recommended "Trick -or-Treat" or "Beggar's Night" might be the night before Halloween or a couple of nights before Halloween. NBC4i.com 2012 Trick-or-Treat list seems to bear that out. Franklin County, Ohio communities (4 comments)

columbus: You say "sanitarium" I say "sanatorium" - 04/15/11 02:42 AM
"You say tomato... I say tomahto.... Lets Call The Whole Thing Off " Wikipedia says: "A sanatorium (also spelled sanitorium and sanitarium) is a medical facility for long-term illness, most typically associated with treatment of tuberculosis (TB) before antibiotics. A distinction is sometimes made between "sanitarium" (a kind of health resort, as in the Battle Creek Sanitarium) and "sanatorium" (a hospital)." The Wikipedia page needs a citation so don't go believing this is gospel. In old movies I always got confused about what was wrong with people who were in "sanitariums" or "sanatoriums" Tuberculosis? Or insanity? I wondered if one of (5 comments)
