Dateline Cincinnati

A few items of interest have appeared in The Cincinnati Enquirer, aside from the Reds getting off to a lousy start. The brighter news includes a story of a Civil War general who left his name to a city landmark, but little of his memory. Along with this, is a sidebar about Cincinnati as a cultural and political crossroads between North and South. Finally, there is good news about the near-completion of the renovation of Cincinnati's oldest house of worship, Old Saint Mary's -- "as German as the Rhine and as Catholic as the Pope" -- not to mention my adopted parish whenever I'm back home.
