[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=096pjEOrdK4]YouTube - The Decline of a Once-Great City: Reason Saves Cleveland Wit[/ame]

As a city close to my heart, it pains me to see Cleveland dying. Having recently visited over the holidays, I can witness to the utter decay of the city. Major sections of the formerly bustling industrial sector look like a warzone.

Sad, really

Wish there was an easy answer. Maybe Cleveland needs to downsize into smaller city that is sustainable

Well it is downsizing...less than 500,000 people now, down from over a million in its heyday.

Paradise.
I went back to ohio
but my city was gone
there was no train station
there was no downtown
south howard had disappeared
all my favorite places
my city had been pulled down
reduced to parking spaces
a, o, way to go ohio
well i went back to ohio
but my family was gone
i stood on the back porch
there was nobody home
i was stunned and amazed
my childhood memories
slowly swirled past
like the wind through the trees
a, o, oh way to go ohio
i went back to ohio
but my pretty countryside
had been paved down the middle
by a government that had no pride
the farms of ohio
had been replaced by shopping malls
and muzak filled the air
from seneca to cuyahoga falls
said, a, o, oh way to go ohio
