I like Cincinnati...

Too socially conservative a town for me


That's what being a stone's throw from Kentucky will do for ya.

I'll always remember Cincinnati as the city where the police shut down the Robert Mapplethorpe exhibit.

Synchro! I'm currently reading the book Just Kids, the autobiography of Patty Smith, the rock star who brought us such hits as Gloria (after Van Morrison did it first) and Horses. She put on a pretty dang good show when we saw her in the 70s in Minneapolis.

Anyway, she was good friends with Mapplethorpe before either had been discovered and lived with him for some years. She's still with him in the part I'm reading right now.
