<![CDATA[Cincinnati's 1 Percent - ]]>

Rich people get to do whatever the hell they want in this city. Maybe that’s the way it is in every city and anyone surprised by it is a simpleton who clearly grew up on the wrong side of I-75.

When voters go to the polls on Nov. 8, they will be faced with making a bevy of wide-ranging decisions that will directly and indirectly impact their lives in the months and years ahead.

Whether it's convincing us to fear crime, poor people, public transportation, African Americans, foreigners, gays, nuclear power or the flu, politicians often win elections by playing to the darkest human instincts. "Vote for me or die" is the underlying message of these sorts of campaigns.

It loosens us up, gets things moving a little better and smoother. Maybe the Fringe Festival is fiber in our otherwise meat-and-potatoes cultural diet.
