The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.
Romney Follows Pres. To NE Ohio, Criticizes “Failed Vision”
Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney has visited a factory in suburban Cleveland that closed in 2008 when George W. Bush was still in the White House, and blamed President Barack Obama for failing to reopen it in more than three years in office.
Obama visited the plant in the winter of 2008, when it was still open, and used it a backdrop for his own campaign.
Now the vast plant stands nearly empty, and Romney said that’s evidence of the failure of the president’s policies to get the country working again.
Ohio is a perennial battleground in presidential politics. No Republican has ever won the White House without capturing the state, and both Obama and Romney are expected to pour in campaign resources through Election Day.
