-Excerpt from Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s Inaugural Address
January 2, 2006
So I'm setting off for Ohio sometime tomorrow. I haven't bothered to worry about trivial things like packing or otherwise preparing for the trip but that's half the fun of it. You arrive and then you get to dig through your hastily put together luggage to find what you've forgotten to bring along this time around.
I don't imagine I'll actually see much of the city itself, though that's probaly no real loss. I've never been one of those sightseeing sort of people anyway. It would be sorta interesting to see the 'free' stamp. I haven't seen anything that ridiculous looking in quite a while. I wonder how many millions went into that art project?
