This was caused by the spent chemicals that the steel plants used to dump into the river. Our research results were presented to both the EPA and before a senate subcommittee on water pollution.

When the boss sent me down river to get lunch for the research group, I couldn't resist the urge to get him a fish sandwich from McDonalds ...

Yeah you're right - the charter company was Million Air.

Of course, your friends were some of the lucky ones....drunk people falling into the river or trying to swim across it used to be a big concern. More than one person didn't make it.

Ahhh...the glory days of The Flats. Haven't been up there this year yet - have they started tearing down all the old crap on the East Bank yet for redevelopment? Or has the weak economy put that on hold?

I was up there last Saturday night- we had dinner in the warehouse district and I drove down just to take a look. Driving down into the Flats used to take an hour with the traffic. There were only a handful of cars out on Saturday. The East bank is absolutely dead and on the other side the Powerhouse parking lot had maybe 50-60 cars. The only thing that looked busy was the strip club.

I still remember the boat parade where the yahoo knocked Heather Locklear out with a beer bottle thrown from the bridge. Cleveland- the epitome of class.

I had a strip steak. Wasn't the best I've ever had but it was definitely a good, flavorful cut.

Next time we're up, I'll check one of your places out.
