Good points. Never even considered the growth taking place in NKY could upset the people across the river. A very parochial attitude on their part if that is the case. There are some really unnecessary things being said by some people on that forum towards NKY. Have not seen much of that until the recent Street Car thread started to deteriorate into a mess. Some people just don't understand the big picture...

Some on this forum think that if anyone disagrees with them it gives them the right to act like a jerk and it's very widespread.

I would not call it growth, just people moving further away, it's like cutting 5 feet off the end of a blanket and sewing it on the other end and saying the blanket is bigger. Cincinnati used to have 500,000 residents at one time, it's less than 300,000 now. Personally I think anyone that works in Cincinnati but lives in Warren county is straight up stupid, that's a lot of time wasted sitting in traffic. I live in Warren county but I only have to drive 5 minutes to get to work.

Most of these homers have never been anywhere else and live in constant denial.

Those people like to think that Ohio would be screwed without the 3-Cs but we would be no worse off than Iowa or Nebraska, corn is always interesting.

I love Kentucky, most Cincinnatians might make a joke about KY being redneck or something but it's all in good fun. Many Cincinnatians go to Newport and Covington for fun from time to time. Everybody has good things to say about Louisville, Horse farms around Lexington and the bourbon.

Of course, I grew up in Campbell County and married a lovely lady from Bourbon County and attended college at WKU (Go Tops!) but I've been living in Cincinnati since 2010 and haven't met anyone say anything super negative towards Kentucky or it's people other than maybe its politics and sports teams. Kentucky comes up a lot with me in conversation with Cincinnatians since my wife and are from there and still travel to central KY, Louisville and BG regularly. Never heard anything bad other than the occasional joke.

I went to high school with plenty of people who live in NKY and refuse to cross the river. There are probably Ohioans who also refuse to cross the river. Those type of people are stupid. Lines on a map.
