Bring The People Back: Reason Saves Cleveland With Drew Carey, Ep. 6

|

No city can exist without people and Cleveland has lost more than half its population since the 1950s. Yet the city still boasts amazingly affordable neighborhoods, down-to-earth charm, a rich history, a stunning and varied landscape, and diverse ethnic and cultural scenes.

How can Cleveland become a destination where people flock to pursue their personal versions of the American Dream?

Reason Saves Cleveland with Drew Carey is written and produced by Paul Feine; camera and editing by Roger Richards and Alex Manning; narrated by Nick Gillespie; music by the Cleveland band Cats on Holiday.

This is the sixth of six episodes which will air March 15-19, 2010. Approximately 10 minutes long.

  1. Nick is correct: the Velvet Tango Room is awesome, as long as you don’t mind blowing $15 on a drink.

  2. Great series. And other than the word “lake” you could substitute the name St. Louis for Cleveland and not change a thing. Exactly the same problems and opportunities.

    1. Since every city from St. Louis to Buffalo has the same issues (despite the states all being politically moderate), one might think that their troubles have more to do with regional macro-trends rather than petty local politics, don’t you think?

      1. Except PA would throw a wrench in there as would Indiana to a degree.
        NY, Ohio and IL are all fairly left wing states with high taxation. 2 hours away Pittsburgh is doing very well, I go there often and there is always some new construction going on, never anything in Cleveland.

        The problem (at least in Cleveland) is that the politicians are more interested in their fiefdoms than running the city well from which the people benefit.

  3. I am very much enjoying this series. How do we get it on broadcast television to edumacate the masses?

    One small complaint: could you have found at least one other city besides Houston as a comparable?

  4. Excellent series. You guys are getting (much deserved) big-time kudos and praise around the media world for this. THIS is what the career politicians need to hear!

  6. The way Drew Carey feels about Cleveland is how I feel about Baltimore. I just love it

    But it doesn’t love me back. I live here, yet spend very little time here. I go out in the counties because it’s cleaner and safer. Crime is outrageous. The local income tax is the second highest in the state. Property taxes are double what the surrounding counties are. One of the biggest problems is the fact that the working class moved out, while the parasitic class multiplied and are sucking the city dry. The budget for the city is scandalous. I’d like to start a business, but am afraid to even find out what the process is.

    Frankly, I’m looking to leave the city.

    1. My only point is that if you take the Bible straight, as I’m sure many of Reasons readers do, you will see a lot of the Old Testament stuff as absolutely insane. Even some cursory knowledge of Hebrew and doing some mathematics and logic will tell you that you really won’t get the full deal by just doing regular skill english reading for those books. In other words, there’s more to the books of the Bible than most will ever grasp. I’m not concerned that Mr. Crumb will go to hell or anything crazy like that! It’s just that he, like many types of religionists, seems to take it literally, take it straight…the Bible’s books were not written by straight laced divinity students in 3 piece suits who white wash religious beliefs as if God made them with clothes on…the Bible’s books were written by people with very different mindsets…in order to really get the Books of the Bible, you have to cultivate such a mindset, it’s literally a labyrinth, that’s no joke.

    2. I do support you that we do really need the healthcare reform in the United States! Let us pray and fight for it. Toghether we can more! I have just joined Interfaith Virtual Vigil of Prayer, Hope, and Action community and I advice you to do the same. Let’s support healthcare!

  13. I have been to Cleveland many times. I think the city does have a lot to offer but once you go outside the city limits it is downhill from there. Great video though and I love Drew Carey. Youtube to MP3

  14. Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE) 1.4x uses a new StrictMath package to perform mathematical calculations, but many of these math routines are much slower than the corresponding routines in J2SE 1.3. Luckily, Java Native Interface (JNI) enables you to circumvent this serious performance bottleneck. seo company
