2016 Republican National Convention named Cleveland as its host city.
decision is worth millions of dollars and shines a very bright light on
Cleveland. All Ohioans should feel proud of this accomplishment. So how come
the front-page story in the Blade dredged up irrelevant, negative impressions
of Cleveland based on images and events that happened almost 50 years ago?
Blade reporter leads with a burning Cuyahoga River. Well, the Cuyahoga River
caught fire in the summer of 1969! The reporter also derides Cleveland
with the "Mistake on the Lake" brand. That moniker is also a relic of
what could have been said: Today, Cleveland is generally considered an example
of revitalization. In studies conducted by The Economist, Cleveland was
ranked one of the most livable cities in the U.S., and the city was ranked as
the best city in the continental U.S. for business meetings. Now that's
fortunate for Cleveland that the RNC doesn't read The Blade, whose petty
put-downs smack of insecurity and an inferiority complex toward the other big
cities in the state.
