I knew that Youngstown was suffering a population (loss) crisis of sorts, but I never expected the city to go to such unusual lengths to remedy the problem.
Yesterday, we drove to Youngstown, and, as we crossed the city limits, we were confronted with a billboard bearing the following public service message and implicit instructions:
"Every girl needs a leading man. Have you been a father today?"
I had to admit I hadn't done my part. Then again, I don't live in Youngstown anymore.
