EOB. Now with BiCoastal Big Ass Bylines. Good Work.

P.S. This has very little to do with the piece but is Erie pronounced locally the same as "eerie" and if so do you ever feel uneasy swimming there?

I've swum in Lake Erie (pronounced like "eerie") almost my whole life, but there are people who won't touch it.

It is true that some beaches are better than others. Edgewater isn't always the best option. When I was a kid, there were awful areas in the lake, but I'd still jump off the side of a boat if it was far enough off shore.

Sounds strange, but the industrial Cuyahoga River always scared the hell of of me. To this day, I have nightmares about being in the dark water among the giant bridge pilings and massive ships.

Thanks as always for dropping in and commenting, RJ.

Your article was very well done. You're right, it can be addictive. After writing a few random articles for them I found I was a font of knowledge on subjects I never would dream of. Granted, not all of it is useful information, but man, if I gave it a few months I could kill at Trivial Pursuit.

"evidence that the more we're treated like machines, the less we act like them."

Great observation, whether you work for Demand Studios or not.
