The Plain Dealer hasn't reported this one:

What does it mean?



Bill

All of the cities in the region seem to be having problems.

Overheard on the police scanner another heroin OD in Bay Village, or as the dispatcher
said, "guess what it was another heroin OD..."

It seems that the region has been in serious decline ever since I first saw that CLE+
logo.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

You are correct, which is the real point of the post.

Ok so Bill we come back to the million dollar question, especially as a majority of our civic
leaders would all seem willing to sell the city short if not out for the regional dream.

Does Lakewood need to embrace the anchor of the Titanic and die quickly, so that the mall
developers can rebuild the city as Beldon Village with new larger prisons and garbage
reclaim areas(dumps), or do we work a little, have some fun, and make Lakewood, the
beacon of success in the region.

I believe more and more our leaders believe their are managing decline, instead of
securing our future. Well this would be the feeling I get after speaking to many, many,
many of them.
