Pennsylvania,

I'll have to disagree Ryan. Pittsburgh has the Cuckoo's Nest, plus several assemblies and rings in the Greater Pittsburgh Area. Plus we're home to Paul Gertner and Devin Knight.

Booo.....
Reading, PA area is home to:
Eddy Ray, of instructional DVD fame
Wayne Hoffman, of NBC Phenomenon fame
Paul Hallas, author of several magic books, and star of DVD's
Wayne Shifflett, owner of the Mingus Magic shop and manufacturer of quality feather flower magic.
Ryan Parsons, a legend in his own mind.
Just to name a few.

Plus it's a stop on almost every big name lecture tour.

So to heck with the "Steel City"

Tennessee would definitely have to be Nashville, home of Ring 37, Magicpalooza, and the 2009 IBM Convention!

Ask any eight year old American kid and they will tell you that Disney World, Orlando, Florida is the magic capitol, they call it "The Magic Kingdom"....unless you live on the West coast...then that would be Disneyland.

Then again that is Disney's Magic......what exactly is Disney's Magic?

Sorry I guess that is another topic of discussion.

Whats it going to take for some people to accept the fact that Colon MI is the Magic Capital of the World, an Act of Congress!

OK, here it is, straight from the 102d Congress of the United States

I believe I would say Nashville is the capital of magic for Tennesee. If you disagree with me prehaps Gatlinburg (Pigeon Forge) the home of Terry Evanswood. Nashville as far as I know has more active magicians then Gatlinburg. Jason Michaels, Scott Cantrell, Stephen Bargetze and myself along with many others are all members of IBM Ring 37 ( The Nashville Magic Club)

Of course for Kentucky, it would be Louisville, it being the birthplace of Lance Burton, Mac King, Steve Bargatze, past IBM president Bob Escher, and many other notables along w/ having the thriving Louisville Magic Club that hosted a successful SAM convention in 06 and of course a even more successful Combined Convention this year. And Louisville can now claim to have a regular venue for magic due to the start of the highly successful Battle of the Hands magic shows each month at the Comedy Caravan, which I preformed at in September and last Monday and if I'm invited back, I may do it again next month!

You forgot to mention Big Daddy Cool and Lonny Divine. Figures. I get no respect here. You know what they say about a prophet in his hometown... Although I am not a member of Ring 37...

OK, No state has more "A"s than Alabama. (Roll Tide!)

Montgomery is the the capital (of the Confederacy) and Alabama. It was also home to the first HBO magician, Mercer Helms. (I don't know what Texas had to do to bribe him to leave Alabama.)

Alabama is also where the recording industry goes to get writers and recording artists. Sweet Home Alabama!

What me proud?

Rumford, Maine's Capital of Magic, shines forth again in a great, great publicity stunt organized by Scot Grassette. Please see the coverage of the World's Largest Letter to Santa. This made The Boston Globe twice. I think that you will find it interesting to see what most people wished for.

Yours,

Paul
