S: We were discussing in the car, earlier, ah, we were talking about how Cincinnati is actually a nice town, ah, because right now in the hypertext, all that we have are sort ofpliantspliantcomplaintsdoes that make sense?|
D: Get the picture.
S: Whines. Yeah. . . a lot of negativity, mostly written by Dirk. So, ah
D: Ive not written very much about Cincinnati at all, as far as I know.
S: Well, we havent really written much. It was just, that first night, it was all, just, you know, ripping on the poor town. Even earlier on this tape, we didnt start to get into all the wonderful things about why its good here. Uh, and Brians actually a native of Cincinnati.
B: Yes I am.
S: One of the coolest Cincinnati natives Ive ever met.
D: Yeah. Before we get into this, Id like to raise a question with Brian. In all the time youve spent with Scott, have you ever heard him say anything positive about Cincinnati, until this moment, when he no longer lives in Cincinnati and is only visiting? And dont you find that curious?
B: That is curious. So, Scott, what is it thats bringing you back to Cincinnati outside of obligation?
S: Ah, well I really miss the place. Theres nothin like an afternoon, playing a little disc golf at Mount Airy Forest, goin to Skyline and gettin a five-way, and then headin up to Graeters, gettin yourself a nice chocolate chip double scoop ice-cream cone, going to La Rosas, and sittin down for a second meal, gettin yourself a nice, ah, nearly-Italian-style calzone. And then, of course, we often forget what a great research institution the University of Cincinnati is, ah. . . . Theres a lot of character to Cincinnati, you know? Its one of the towns where, ah
D: Its got characters, all right.
S: where people are proud to live here, and, uh, you know, 800,000 Cincinnatians cant be wrong. . . . Well what do you like about Cincinnati, Brian? You stayed here.
B: Geography. I think Ive decided thats what keeps me here.
D: What keeps you here?
B: The hills.
D: The hills?
B: You could go anywhere else in the Midwest, essentially, youre dealing with flat, barren land. But in Cincinnati, I think were fortunate to be in this location where the rivers are hittin each other and forming a nice set of hills. And woods, forest. Very different. It does something to you. Go up to Columbus, spend a few days, youll drive yourself crazy. Theres just nothing to see.
D: Okay, but were comparing Cincinnati to other bland places in this country. Does that mean you need to stay in the least bland of the Midwest? If you want hills, go to Washington. They have mountains. Go to Alaska.
