Cleveland Rocks!....or at least Plays a Pretty Good Violin Concerto

Nick Gillespie over at Reason has put together a pretty good analysis of Cleveland. His research initiative was done in conjunction with Cleveland native Drew Carey, who apparently is big into libertarianism.

But my favorite part of the article isn't the predictable decentralize, less government recommendation, but the intro paragraph where he points out how a world class symphony orchestra is always a highly promoted feature of every declining city.

He's right!

I've never heard of anyone moving to a city because it had a top ranked symphony orchestra, but have heard people who are kind of defensive about the cities they currently live in, or are forced to live in because of work, do so.
