130 A tip for Tampico

I've been through Tampico, Il many times--especially before the interstate was finished we now use to return to my home town in Illinois. Noticed this item in last week's Time:
The streaking 747 was so far ahead of schedule that a swing over Tampico, Ill., Reagan's birthplace, was wedged into the flight plan. The pilot dipped the plane's wings, and Nancy called out, "Quick, get Ron and Patti to take a look." They gazed silently out the windows. The tiny cluster of buildings on a land-sea of vivid green summer corn quickly slid beyond view. "A lot of corn," said Nancy.
