No mob stronghold was in Slavic Village. They were in Big Italy, Little Italy, Woodland/East 110 (Bloody Corner), Collinwood (Irish and Italian), Mayfield/Lyndhurst, Kinsman (Jewish Syndicate), Glenville (Jewish Syndicate), and a little bit on the West Side.

Read the Porello books Corn Sugar & Blood, as well as Kill The Irishman (see the movie). Another very good book is by James Neff, titled Mobbed Up, made into a movie Teamster Boss: The Jackie Presser Story. You might also like The Informant Files by Robert James, as well as Brancato: Mafia Street Boss by Frank Monastra. Enjoy!

Currently sitting at a hotel bar in Eugene (OR) and business travelers were talking about their favorite cities to travel for work.  The cities agreed upon were Portland, Denver, Cleveland, Chicago, Madison (WI), and Boise.  Overhead was "Boise is surprising cool and Cleveland is solid." 

I know, not National Geographic, but it still made me smile.

I have been traveling quite a bit over the past year with my job change, and I find myself hearing similar things. The reasons people tell me they love traveling here on business is the ease of getting downtown from the airport and the compactness of all of the entertainment, dining, and nightlife options in Downtown. Basically, people love our culture and dining and love the fact that they get it all crammed into a walkable downtown.

I can speak from my travels as well that this is not the case in many of our peer cities.

^ yep same here. for one thing i think people are tired of homogenized developments in the newer back to the city movement cities and are more appreciative of places with personality.

instead of a cleveland joke, i heard a clevelandy joke:

Did you hear about the guy who invented Lifesavers?

They say he made a mint.

So how bad did I want some decent corned beef today? On a recommendation, walked a mile in 40 degree weather in Cleveland area to Slymanís.  Very worth it.  Need better corned beef options in DC! Btw. Hoping Slymanís will mail order soon! (Sneaky good latkes too)

In traffic yesterday. The guy in SUV in front of me flipped three lit cigarettes out of the window in a 5 min span. Aside from the usual pro-CLE bumper stickers all over the back there were these two gems:

"We Do Not Own the Earth We are Part of it" and "My Goddess Created Your God"

If you throw trash out of your car you don't love Cleveland, or the planet. You just suck.

They replaced station wagons because of the federal CAFE regulations.   They counted differently.

Americans can't be micromanaged succesfully.   The feds keep trying and it always backfires.

If anyone's been on the Google today FYI the MLK themed art was done by a friend, Cleveland's own Cannaday Chapman. Cannaday's an illustrator and all-round-good-guy at American Greetings.

Enjoy!

I believe Google Maps was recently updated to include a lot of new projects and some completed ones that were previously shown as dirty lots or in utero.
Apologies if this in the wrong place/redundant to post this.

There is a very nice article about the Garfield Memorial in Saturday's WSJ. Of the four "grand" ones (Garfield, Lincoln, Grant, and McKinley), the author likes it the best.
