Ithaca is Gorges nationally renowned

Ever since the end of the Homestar Runner fad when I put aside my Pompom t-shirt, my most commented upon garment has been the iconic green "Ithaca is Gorges" t-shirt. Former residents of that fine town, as well as past attendees of its fine colleges and universities, are not at all shy about mentioning their love of the place to someone whose clothing suggests they might appreciate hearing it, or at least have some idea of what the speaker is talking about. It's pretty cool, being part of the Ithaca-in crowd. Most of the time, anyways; sometimes the former residents' lack of shyness is manifested with an enthusiasm and lack of social awareness that is a little embarrassing in a public place. But that's alright, at least we know that even the crazy people are good liberals!
