Philo Made Us Proud

The Huffington Post provides a reason for each state to be proud of something. Idaho's reason to be proud? Philo Farnsworth. If you haven't heard of Philo, you may not have lived here long. Here's what HuffPo said of Philo:

“Philo Farnsworth, the “Forgotten Father of Television,” moved to a farm near Rigby, Idaho, when he was 13 years old. In 1927, Farnsworth conceived a model for a TV that reproduced images electronically on a screen, which he drew out in a diagram for his chemistry teacher.” (Here's HuffPo's list of all states)

Question: What is the main reason that you're proud of Idaho?
