Are We There Yet?

Before hand-held games and in-car movies, parents tried to ward off the “Are we there yet?” question on road trips by keeping kids busy playing 20 Questions, I Spy or the License Plate Game, with the winner spotting plates from the most states. I couldn’t help but think of the latter game while attending World Pork Expo June 8 to 10 in Des Moines, Iowa. Just a quick pass through the parking lot showed cars from Minnesota to Texas and from California to New York.
