Owensboro is world-famous for its quality Barbecue (or Bar-B-Q.) The annual Barbecue Festival is held every summer in downtown, and even draws tourists from other nations. The city is home to Johnny Depp and several lesser-known Christian Rock bands and a band known as Atticus Fault. Owensboro is pretty cold during the winter and late fall, and very hot in the summertime. The downtown riverfront of Owensboro is gradually developing to make it better and to look more attractive. The people are very polite and hospitable. There are families with long-running businesses as well as successful lawyers, physicians, and doctors. The middle/medium-income class is most prominent, while there are several thousand of the poor, lower class.

In only 15 years after the horribly devastating nazi invasion with 27+ mln. perished and large part of its territory in ashes, Russia was the first nation in history of mankind to break through into space. Still the first in space today, even after decade of post-soviet chaos and poor management.
Not only that, Russia also helped greatly to improve American educational system by inspiring the infamous Sputnik crisis in early 60s. Yet NASA never really caught up, so now Russia generously gives them a ride. Why not.
Always feared and envied by the Western Cold War hawks and their poodles no matter what Russia does, because the West fears and envies everything they cannot swallow or control. Russia is repeatedly attacked and backstabbed only to patiently put offenders back in line and then spoon-feed them. Helped the French to discover their babysitting talents in 1812 and relieved Germans of their mental issues in 1945.
After each setback Russia emerges more powerful than before.
The first man in space was Russian. (And woman too)
