That is one fine parking lot.

The scaffolding tells me that Cleveland is a city... on the rise!

On the site of that parking lot in 1857, two guys argued about the Dred Scott decision.

That one still makes me angry. Dred Scott should have been called safe at home and the Indians should have won that year's world series.

Given the scaffolding, I would urge you to keep your blinds closed at all times, lest someone find out about the curious habits of some SABR members.

Burn on, big river.

So much to see there, sightseeing on Lake Erie (a la Stranger than Paradise). Actually I really did enjoy visiting the West Side Market in Ohio City and while the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was not worth the $20 it was neat to see the Dylan exhibit on tour 2 years ago. Cleveland -- where dead rock stars live!

Bring back some good tidbits, Bob. I'm looking forward to your report.

In fairness, it would be difficult to see the St. Louis courthouse from Cleveland no matter what direction your room faced.

Last time I was in Cleveland, I drove to Mentone to visit James Garfield's house. It's a national historic site!

And there was another landmark along the way: the interstate in Cleveland that makes a 90-degree right turn. I recommend slowing down for that one.

That brick building behind the parking lot looks exactly like my freshman year dorm.
