Be serious, Motorman.
Have you read this thread?
Have you not noticed that the last two pages have just been a running discussion between jbchm81 and Matthew Hall about experiences and perceptions what makes an experience a perception and trolling and this and that and other things that have exactly zero to do with CLE > COL > CIN!
I have to admit I stopped reading it because it felt like I was ease dropping on a frikking private conversation and it was becoming painful to read!!!!

With any luck, that should all be over and it shouldn't happen to any other threads.

and that of Columbus:

"Columbus2020: Regional job growth lagged in 4Q",

It would be an indication of the future only if it was perpetually sustained into the future. People said the same thing when Cleveland's unemployment rate went below Columbus' for one month in 2011. Cincinnati is doing well and recovering solidly, to be sure, but I don't think anyone can make long term predictions based on such short-term data.

Also, some context is in order for the second link. The national rate was 0.3%, Columbus was at 0.2%, and the state as a whole was -0.1%. Columbus and Cincinnati are both doing much better than the state average.

Yes, but the recent past has generally been stronger for jobs in Columbus overall, but that goes against your point. The recent past may be useful at times for trends, but it's not an absolute.

I would have to choose Cleveland...Downtown Cleveland is booming right now and also Uptown University Circle. Cleveland is where its happening.. Cincinnatti is 2nd and 3rd Columbus...Columbus only have Ohio State...minus the university equal dead city...Downtown Columbus is the weakest ever

Cleveland is where its happening are you kidding me. Im from chicago and i moved to cincinati and i tell you it was a great chioce beacuse cincinnati has alot of stuff chicago has cleveland didnt. what im mean is mainley diversity. Go to the kenwood mall and youll see mexicans, muslims tons of muslims and mixed race couples. CiNCINNATI downtown is booming right now what i mean by this is construction on a streetcar systems, two new parks, a 21st century musem, casino,new resteraunts that cleveland dont even have, a park between the two stadiums with a bike trail that goes along the river front and we also have a new tower and it will keep going on.

Increasing diversity and a redevoping downtown seems to be a common theme for all of the 3-Cs. That is one positive they all share.

Yeah--our new trainee means well, but we have to keep a leash on him and, occasionally, reign him in. Right now, though, he's our youngest and most promising Columbus/Cleveland attack dog, so we hope to keep him around.
