    Ah, my hometown. The Evening Review. Won't be applying, though.

    My freshman roommate was from here. She described it as a shithole. That's all I got.

    It is a shithole. That's exactly how I'd describe it. And i'm from a nearby shithole.

    (I went online to see what the writers are like there and the editor wrote that Bonds is the all-time greatest Pirate, better than Clemente, because Bonds hit more home runs as a Bucco. Nice.)

    When I was there, it wasn't quite that bad. But went through this summer and it wasn't pretty. Doesn't quite have the beauty of Salem. But about on par with Midland and Wellsville.

    And Roberto Clemente the best? What about Marvell Wynne?
     
  6. FWIW: The editor is an award-winning writer and (I think) columnist.

    East Liverpool IS a shithole of the highest order.

    You could always live in West Liverpool then.

    John Havlicek country. Bonds probably would've been better than Clemente, had he stayed his entire career and avoided the creme, the needle, or whatever else he used.

    Actually birthplace of Lou Holtz. And yeah, Bonds might've surpassed Clemente. But he was nowhere near as clutch, or inspirational. And Clemente won two rings, and would've won more MVPs in a more, ahem, tolerant time period.

    No. Actually Holtz was born in West Virginia and moved to ELO when he was young. They do have the Lou Holtz Hall of Fame, or museum, or whatever it is.

    The most famous things about the town: Former Olympian Aric Long is from there, as is Less Browne, who is like the CFL's all-time interception leader. It billed itself as "The Pottery Captial of the World" and Pretty Boy Floyd met his end just outside of town.

    And, to paraphrase all the posters, it just doesn't look too good anymore.

    I grew up not too far from here. While much of NE Ohio leaves a lot to be desired, I wouldn't go as far as to call it a shithole. Granted, I've only been back one in 10 years, but I still don't think it's that bad. It is what it is. You also can enjoy some juvenile snickering by saying you live 25 miles from a town called Big Beaver. ;D

    Every time I'm on PA 60, I have to resist the urge to pull over and try to take the sign that says "Borough of BIG BEAVER."
    Yeah, I'm just that juvenile.
