"Miserable," and proud of it.
So Cleveland made a Forbes Magazine list again, this time "America's Most Miserable Cities."
[Editor's note: Normally I'd link to the article, but if you want to read it you'll need to find it yourself. I'm not sending any traffic to Forbes.]
Instead, why not watch this video? It's more fun than the article, and you don't even have to leave this web page to do it.
I don't consider myself a big-time Cleveland booster. I know full well the problems we have, especially poverty and crime (the snow & cold I'm OK with). I've lived in the Cleveland—and I mean Cleveland, not Greater Cleveland, not Northeast Ohio, but Cleveland—for 60+ years.
It's not perfect, but it's a darn good place to live. Not to put too fine a point on it, here's my reaction to the article: Hey Forbes! Why don't you just kiss my miserable Cleveland born-and-raised butt!
The story behind the video, and other responses to the article.
