Re: “Friday Morning Music Swag Giveaway

By the Way would be a great choice. Their cover of Higher Ground would be sweet too.

I grew up in the Cleveland area (30+ years) and moved to Columbus a few years ago. As an adult I always viewed Cleveland as a place that could be great if people did not always fall on the old familiar "woe is us" attitude. There are great things happening and unfortunately they sometimes get lost amidst the negativity.

I found it hard at times to balance the excitement of new ideas with the knowledge of past failures. Why is the lakefront still not developed? Why did the county buy the Ameritrust tower? Does anyone else need a Silkwood shower after the Merchandise Mart/Convention Center process?

The political environment does not seem conducive to any kind of long term success. There are great things happening in Cleveland but they are often blunted by an old school mentality that lives in fear of change ("The reigning Democratic Party is not a political entity, it's a culture run by those whose idea of reform resembles that of the Taliban war lords. They want to go back in time because yesterday is easier to understand than tomorrow." - Amen to that)
