hensleya is filled with speculative misinformation. This isn't the first time.

Hi TomJones123--

Cold, unpleasant facts.

http://www.cincinnati-oh.gov/finance...9E/showMeta/0/

The amount of money spent on transportation is buried on page 288 of this report - $23,359,500.

The amount spent on fixing roads is even smaller, $10,163,800. The majority of the "transportation" funds are used on projects such as adding bicycle accesibility, "traffic calming" devices, and other stuff. Basically, nothing conducive to cars.

Police is on page 284 - $135,873,340.

Out of a total budget of $361.5 million - that is on page 20 - it looks like police and roads are some 30-odd percent of the city's budget. I forget what else Mecklenborg was rambling about but it's nowhere near 90%.

Try, try again.

In case you missed it. I'm not a self appointed mod, but the SSDD routine get's old from certain posters. It works like this: We have a thread on a certain topic, then the same tired crap comes to play, then we all argue like a bunch of idiots, and we have another bungled thread.

Do what you guys want. I'm just pointing out the obvious.

Hi TomJones123--

I suppose my information is more fairly directed at Mecklenborg since he's the one that stated that "90% of Ohio city budgets go to police and roads!!!!11!". But you did specifically mention me by name and say I was filled speculative information. I obviously had to prove otherwise.

Yep. And you have been wrong so many times I have lost count. (and not that I think you are right in this case --- I really don't care)

My all time favorite is when you told someone the area around Children's Hospital (Avondale) was safe.

I have an idea though. Let's not make this thread about you, or I either. Later.

I haven't been following this thread that much, but my interpretation of the original article is that commuting takes too much time and money in big cities, so the path of least economic resistance for young workers is living where the jobs are.

I think it is dangerous to extrapolate too much about values-shifts and changing paradigms. My personal experience with college students and recent graduates is that students are very risk adverse when it comes to acquiring financial liabilities such as property and car loans, so this could explain part of the renting preference.

The articles give age ranges into the mid 30s.

Good points either way.

Hi TomJones123--

You keep repeating this ad nauseam, so I have to set the record straight. I said that Children's was hit and miss. Now, it's probably more miss than hit, but I've never been robbed, shot, stabbed, carjacked, or burgled there. I was always there during the day. Your mileage may vary.

It's similar to how I still consider OTR to be extremely unsafe - because I've had multiple friends who have been robbed there, the most recent of which was a month ago. Perception and opinion.

Whether it is conducive for cars or not, it's still funding on roads. Bicycles still use roads and are a form of transportation.

Just because you need a history lesson, and since you seem intent on hijacking this thread. After this, say what you will, I am getting back on topic and away from this insanity.
