To the People of Cincinnati: read an excerpt from this upcoming book, pre-order your copy, and mark your calendar for the gallery opening and the literary gathering.

Cincinnati Group Promises Big Bucks to Creative Entrepreneurs with Best Pitch: just that.

You Might Pack Up Everything and Move to Cincinnati After Watching This: you won’t, but it’s a cute little video.

  1. I think we should have MORE horses in the city streets.
    I am sure NYC has people checking on the stable owners. The animal rights people like PETA & HSUS are just insane. They’re kinda like a bureaucratic version of Ra’s al Ghul. I’m sure the developers have no problem utilizing them.
    John Lydon did a video tour of London & said a lot of the same things the Telegraph article did.

  2. Quimbob, I’m not on board with the horse-and-carriage stuff at all, but this seems like class warfare. I think the issue of animals rights is just a pretext by the developers.

    I remember that John Lydon video! To quote Portlandia, “It’s so over.”

  3. Well, I’m not exactly talking about the touristy horse drawn carriages so much as just using horses to get around.
    Like this guy…
