Demolishing Our Way Toward Tomorrow

I found another article on our shrinking city worth reading. MuniNetGuide describes Youngstown as a mini-metropolis, but it includes a magnificant history of where we are and how we got there, going back to the steel era lost 30 years ago.

“Maybe Bruce Springsteen will have to write some new lyrics to his song.”

Famous people include...."American Communist Party President Gus Hall; and imprisoned Ohio congressman James Traficant."

It was a great article, despite some obvious Youngstown history we can't hide.

I don't think we need to hide it, but we can learn from it. Without being forced to clean up Traficant's mess, we might not have been forced to clean up the rest of it.
