Culture in Cleveland

September 19, 2006 at 4:09 AM


I got a phone call from a headhunter for a job I’m totally unqualified for. After describing the job, he asked whether I’d be willing to relocate to Cleveland. I thought first of the dreadful winters, second, the Cleveland Symphony and CIM, and third, my desperation for a job, so I said, “Sure.” He seemed surprised and asked whether I’d ever been to Cleveland. I said, “No, but I have friends there, and there is some good music there.” He brightened and replied, “Yeah, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is there, and they’ve got great football, too.”

Is that the best Cleveland has to offer?
