Joe is one of my favorite writers in America. Here is a wonderful piece on the pride of cities. A great, great read.

That was fun-- thanks.
Knew coach when he lived and coached High School basketball in tiny Wheeling WV. Was easy to talk to and on the right side of helping people. Just a nice guy and it's fair to say that the world lost when he left it.

Good read indeed.

Hmm.. what's the best thing about Cleveland?
Our college radio stations!! Seriously, I've checked college radio throughout America (via smart phone, tunein.com, etc.) Cleveland has four eclectic stations that play
folk, country, punk, prog-rock, music of Serbia, Africa.. you name it. Anytime I've gone to other major cities there's very little at the left end of the FM dial (college/NPR band.)

As for Missouri, my home state.. the rolling hills of the Ozarks are hard to beat. I love West Virginia though.
In southwest Missouri people are CRAAAAZY about Chinese food and basketball. Not just men's basketball; women's basketball is huge!! Five colleges sell out their women's
games regularly, and high school gyms are packed for high school girl's roundball.
