Shaking in Shaker?

Cleveland's most famous suburb makes the Times today. Link. But not in a good way. Shaker Heights, like many of the nation's inner ring suburbs, has been under pressure for a long time now. With the housing crisis, it's likely to go under--despite the valiant efforts of its biracial population. The other "heights" are likely to go, as well. But I'm curious to hear what Paul thinks.

With it being the first week of classes and with me being out of the country for 5 months, I've little time to respond in any meaningful way. However, see this article here for some corroboration of your worries.

PS -- I was pleasantly surprised to see that there are not many or any for sale signs near my house (near Fairhill Center for Aging on E. 124th). Anecdotal evidence upon my return suggests there may be an uptick in crime...

That was me who made that comment, not Madda. Evidently she was using my computer for Gmail and it logged me on as her...

Glad to hear that there aren't many For Sale signs up near there. If you get a chance, I'd be curious how many signs are up on Ashurst Road (b/w Silsby and Meadowbrook).
