I gave this news some deeper thought after I stopped laughing: Thanks to men, Hagerstown has the dubious honor of ranking No. 2 on the "Eight Cities with the Ugliest Guys" list. The Hagerstown Ugly Man story has been making its rounds as the butt of jokes on Facebook status updates and as a featured story on regional news segments ever since the story was published on TotalBeauty.com Sept. 25. Whether calling Hagerstown men ugly are fighting words depends on a few things - like how you interpret data or if you're a guy or a girl.

I can't remember where I just put down my coffee cup, but for some reason I have a keen, photo-like memory of my fourth-grade history textbook. And sad to say, it's taken me a lifetime to unlearn all the incorrect images that this book left behind. For example, the textbook had me thinking that Lewis and Clark and an Indian woman basically walked from Washington, D.C., to Seattle in a week or two. The drawing showed the two men in coonskin caps and Sacagawea in fringed buckskin with a feather or two popping out of her dome - they were standing on a hill, and she's pointing to the Pacific Ocean, in case L & C had somehow missed it. It probably was another 30 years before I learned that the expedition needed a small army and a couple of years to span the continent.
