QCS Quips

Random thoughts . . . Cincinnati related and otherwise.

  • Ok, the article of me in CinWeekly is available online.
  • Walking down the street last week I think I passed by Father Schnippel who writes the Called by Name blog.
  • One of my favorite blogs is ESPN.com’s Big East Football Blog by Brian Bennett. He has been counting down the 30 best college football players in the Big East for like the last month. Finally through to No. 1, UC only has three players on the list: #23 Jeff Linkenbach, OT; #5: Mardy Gilyard, WR; and #2 Tony Pike, QB.
  • The season finale of “My Boys” was pretty good.
  • A nice article in the USA Today on building rail links from airports to downtowns across the United States. Don’t get me started on that idea here in Cincinnati . . .
  • If this city can get its act together (and it really has been pissing me off the last few weeks), I think it should host the 2020 National Convention of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). 2020 would mark the Chapter’s 150th Anniversary. It is the 4th oldest AIA Chapter in the country. Maybe by then we will have a completed Banks, Riverfront Park, streetcar, and maybe even some light rail. Though I will say the convention may be too large for us to accommodate.

I had to do a double-take when I was flipping through CiN Weekly the other day and saw the piece about you. Congrats...I bet your traffic spikes a bit as a result.
