    The asbestos-ridden Sanders Hall towering above UC campus.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    I grew up in Mt. Washington til I was eleven (and my family moved back there after I was grown up), and to this day it is one of my favorite neighborhoods in the world. One of the most unpretentious places I've ever seen, literally project housing next to unsung 200+ year-old log cabins and Victorian houses, and pretty much unaware and nonchalant about it. Things that used to be in Mt. Washington but aren't anymore: the children's clothes store (Fantasia I think it was called), the old Kroger's (the new big one that backs up on the street makes me ill -- I refused to shop there every time I came home from college because of the size and layout), the Gold Star you're referring to (moved across the street), Hardee's (for the best, really), and some other things. El Rancho Rankin was condemned, and Beechmont Avenue there finally went to four lanes and they cut down a lot of trees to do it. There's a big ugly walgreen's now too. The little library where I spent every monday afternoon is still there though, along with the LaRosa's, the bakery, the drive-up liquor stand, stanbury Park, and of course the water tower.

    Til recently my mother lived in a beautiful farmhouse on a good deal of land, built in 1900, that backed up onto a 13-acre polo farm with some horses, two cows, and Billy the Goat (who would sometimes break loose and roam through the neighborhood). This is smack in the middle of Mt. Washington, in the limits of the city of Cincinnati. This is really quite difficult to find in modern cities...I love Mt. Washington. I hope it never gets too gentrified or too awful.

    That library is at the base of the big water tower, isn't it?

    I was up there a few years ago for my grandmother's funeral right across the street. The Linder family sent flowers, which was a bit....odd.
    I'm interested in jobs and you won't create jobs by forcing employers to pay their employees $9/hr- Sea Ray
    I'd say min wage should be about $9/hr - Sea Ray

    Yep, and the post office is right next to it, with a cemetery behind them. I think that funeral home is called TP White's.

    In that neck of the woods...what was the name of the old people's restaurant at the corner of Beechmont and Five Mile where they gave you a whole chocolate cake for your birthday? I think it was a chain...but now there's something else there, an IHOP or something, which is riconkulous.

    I was banned from the go-kart place in Eastgate after crashing my go-kart. I was chasing a boy at the time.
