Indiana is the 19th state of the United States of America, and is home to the Indianapolis 500.

  • In 1978, the police force of Lafayette, Indiana named Kermit the Frog an honorary member. The Muppet Show Fan Club issue #4 explained: "Kermit copped the honor when School Liaison Officer Pat Hughes conducted a safety campaign, and asked local youngsters to appoint their favorite animal star as a symbol. The campaign was so successful that Mayor James F. Riehle created this special award and Kermit was issued badge No. 46."
