I had no idea a blog post would rile up so much.
Lots of people responded to/commented on the now infamous Vanity Fair article well before I; for some reason it was my post that ignited the conversation.
And that's the most important thing - this week's turn of events led to a conversation and celebration of Cincinnati, our cultural forays, our history and a multitude of other great things happening inside the I-275 beltway.
God, that's awesome.
Like I've said in some of my tweets - I didn't ask to be the messenger, and this whole fiasco isn't about who was first or who was last.
It's about how much we all love our city.
As far as I can tell, that puts us all on the same side; I can't figure out why some of the comments I've read had a tone that made me feel differently.
Regardless, thanks for the comments, the criticism and the celebration of my blog post.
And a big thanks to Vanity Fair for actually responding to the uproar and providing a link to my blog on your site. I guess this isn't the time for me to burst out into a, "You like me! You really like me!", huh?
I think maybe next week I'm going to take on a posthumous Mark Twain for his remark that Cincinnati is 20 years behind the curve.
That guy didn't know a thing.
