Is it any different than "Keep Louisville Weird" a few years back? A total dud in either case...

well, I for one don't find this area into the quirky that much. I do see a sort of Rust Belt Chic thing going on here.....in an un-ironic way....

Agreed. Dayton's a lot of things, good or bad, but "unique" and "weird" don't count among them.

Hard to get much more stereotypical America than here.

Here's a good thing on rustbelt chic by one of my fave bloggers

Burgh Diaspora: Genealogy Of Rust Belt Chic
Quote:

...Rust Belt Chic turns the traditional notion of Rust Belt on its head. The
Rust Belt is lower class, impoverished, slapdash, and shallow. At least, that's how it looks from the coast, in New York
City.
Rust Belt Chic as a place to be is a form of resistance. ....
& I like how he ties it into the chicano concept of "Rasquache"....there's a lot of rasquache to Dayton....

....3rd on 3rd (as it was last year, havnt been yet this year) is a good example of this. Cincy has CityFlea, the "curated flea market" (!)....Dayton has 3rd on 3rd....which is both raquache and rust belt chic...

Really okay, for me. I get my progressiveness from YS...other than the trashy element, "normal" isn't so bad coming from somewhere everyone tries to "out-hip" each other to the point of absurdity (in a non-amusing way).

The story of the police officer pulling over a young man for making "direct eye contact" has been picked up by CNN:

^^ This is the kind of thing that happens when you lower the passing score for the Dayton Police exam to 58 percent.

Quote:
The city’s Civil Service Board and the U.S. Department of Justice have agreed on a lower passing score for the police recruit exam after it was rejected because not enough blacks passed the exam.

The lowered benchmark requires candidates to answer 50 of 86 (58 percent) questions correctly and 64 of 102 (63 percent) of questions on the other.

That says U.S. Department of Justice.

In that case it's nationwide and not something particular to Dayton. (It's true for Beavercreek, too.)
