Streetcar Battle Gets Ugly

2 Comments · Wednesday, September 2, 2009
Cincinnati is a city that was settled predominantly by German Catholics, but I doubt if even the most devout modern-day resident knows Latin well enough to understand what "e.g." means. The obscure abbreviation is at the center of the latest debate over whether Cincinnati should build a $185 million streetcar system that connects downtown and Over-the-Rhine with the uptown area near the University of Cincinnati and local hospitals.

If its true that misery loves company, then you might think two groups of people used to being prejudged and scorned just for who they are might be more sympathetic to each other. Thats not the case for Cincinnatis black and gay communities, at least if you listen to Christopher Smitherman, president of the local NAACP chapter.

Ballot initiative coalition led by NAACP chapter targets city's streetcar plan

A petition drive has been launched to place an issue on the November ballot to prevent Cincinnati officials from spending money on the streetcar project without first getting approval from city voters.
