    GreenCityBlueLake: Roundup. A boatload of great information in this little post. I’m particularly intrigued by the Citizen Dashboard Project. It looks like Marc Canter (the guy who developed what ended up as Flash Player) is behind this. I think that places like Cleveland really need a kick in the pants on this kind of thing.…

    The White House: Cute dog pictures. This was a topic of conversation at breakfast today.

  • Today’s Report – April 6th

    FalconCam! There’s a webcam that keeps track of the pair of Peregrine Falcons that nest on the Terminal Tower. Cool! I had no idea that falcon’s eggs were purple like plums. I thought they were speckled. Or is she just collecting plums? Hmmm… Posnanski: Debuts. Joe writes about Roger Clemens’ first game in the majors,…

    Plain Dealer: Cuyahoga County Reform Proposal Stalled. So everyone pretty much agrees that the local government situation here in Cleveland is broken, but nobody, and I mean nobody is willing to give up anything to fix it. In this one short article we get to see how “black leaders”, folks upset with certain “political advisers”,…
