Grand Rapids, MI


Bart's "new hometown" is going to be prominently featured in this weekend's New York Times. Sounds like a neat little city. I'm surprised that their intrepid reporter didn't mention the GR's burgeoning gazebo population though. And no word on when the NYT is doing "36 Hours in Price Hill"; they're probably waiting for the Real World crew to finish.

The Cincinnati one was done about three years ago. It includes the compelling line: "Well, for once the news from Cincinnati is upbeat and decidedly not sleazy." Damn liberal east coast media slamming fly-over country. Have you played corn-hole, New York Times?

Wow, that Cincinnati article is unbelievable. Obviously, the intro paragraph slams the city, but the rest of the article also manages to work in plenty of subtle digs and back-handed compliments. Harsh.

BTW, Bart -- please tell me that you are going to start referring to your town as "The G.R.". I think that this could be my mark on history.
