As with all tragedy, there is opportunity.? The destruction by fire of one of Cleveland’s most treasured African American institutions is yielding a lot of declarations of support.? But in a city that has been careening downhill for decades, there is precious little money to bring the Lancer back to life.

Hmmm….now who in town has a lot of money?? I wonder…….

If I were Lebron James or Shaquille O’Neal, I’d be considering an investment in not only the history of Cleveland’s African American community, but in their own legacy, via the rebirth of The Lancer.? Who wouldn’t applaud that?

    Pul-eeeze, Tim, I mean really. Just because they are African-American and rich they are obligated to pay to rebuild the Lancer? Are Shaq and Lebron fans of the Lancer? Have they ever eaten there? And what about all the other African-American athletes on Cleveland sports teams? Maybe they should all chip in to preserve their “legacy”. Yeah, and while we're at it, maybe they should foot the bill for repairing our inner-city schools, and rehabing homes in depressed neighborhoods…I could go on and on.
