While snow piles up outside in NEO,  in Hawaii the anthurium are brilliant, waxy red.   A  friend just arrived Friday from Hawaii and hand carried these spectacular delicate stems.   What a thoughtful present.


Across the globe there is a huge variety in flowers – some more dramatic than others.  So that made me think….


Every class has brighter students, students who apply themselves, and other students less bright and less focused.  Classes have grades.  There is the SAT which helps differentiate where a student might be accepted to college.


How about our Government here in NEO and the City of Cleveland?  


If Cities were kids in a school class, would Cleveland be one of the brighter students?  Or could Cleveland and NEO be the dunce?  Are we autistic? Are we a challenged student? 


Who is grading Cleveland?    Does the census grade Cleveland?
