    I want to highlight the following excerpt from the Urbanophile post:

    “Normally if I post an article about a city, it gets forwarded around in that city and I get lots of hits from there. We’ll see if anyone in Cleveland even notices this. In fact, I’ve got to confess, I’m running a bit of an experiment with this one. Will anyone in Cleveland notice? I’ll post a comment in a few days to let you know how it turned out.”

    One must conclude that The Urbanophile is not yet on the Cleveland+ mailing list.

    Probably will be by tomorrow, though…

    There can be no more fitting re-inforcement for the “Clevecentric” string than this commentary from an interested, curious, knowledgeable outsider.

    Those within The Matrix are famously prickly about criticism from out of town. It’s one reason they’re primarily comfortable talking among themselves. They don’t cotton to outsiders (or even insiders) who haven’t drunk the KoolAid.

    A few years ago, after Peter Lewis’ famous jeremiad about Cleveland’s leadership crisis, I e-mailed a friend of mine who was a volunteer officer at GCP’s predecessor organization and asked, “”Are people hearing what he has to say, or are they dismissing him as just an old pothead who doesn’t know what’s REALLY going on?…”

    I never got an answer.

    I suspect that if The Urbanophile’s post IS “noticed,” it will be similarly dismissed as coming from someone who doesn’t REALLY know what’s going on.

    And by the way, the guy who made the video?…He’s my godson…
