A friend of mine shared a petition from a gal in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood — where I went to high school.
I broke out the bomble.com telestrator to share my thoughts and some questions.
Oh, and finally, if you want a well-reasoned argument from one of the petition signers, there is this:
Just another reason why Cleveland doesn’t deserve nice things. I hope they get their wish and end up with another “artisan” Rent A Center instead.
Here’s a novel idea: If you don’t like something, don’t patronize it.
Before I forget, I’ve long agreed that the West Side Market should be privatized. Read reason’s take “Why Cities Like Cleveland Die: They Refuse to Emulate Success While Persisting in Failure” here.
It’s petitions like these that make me happy my parents are moving away from communities that act like this — and why I have no plans to move back to Cleveland.
