Kaldi's Back - Officially
We'll need to get Lily Pad live on Main Street for their official re-opening in late August. I'm glad to see this happening, it's great for the neighborhood which seems to chronically have it's ups and downs. But there certainly are a ton of new residential units coming online in the area and the Art Academy is about to open, which will be a built in customer base for the coffee house.

Brian and Joe Radio - Damon Lynch, Peter Block, and Findlay
City Council candidate Rev. Damon Lynch III and bestselling author
Peter Block - a worldwide leader in the practice of organizational development
and community engagement - will join us to discuss plans to change areas around
Findlay Market in Over-the-Rhine.
Should be a great show. Peter Block is great, and you may just learn a couple things you didn't know about Damon Lynch. Take a listen.
John Roberts Jr. - Supreme Court Justice?
John Roberts was appointed and the attacks have begun. I still need to read up to form my own opinion, but being just confirmed in 2003, it seems hard to imagine that he'd get held up. Since the previous agreement was for 'extreme cases', I can't imagine someone that was just confirmed to the 2nd highest court 2 years ago would be called an 'extreme' nominee.
I must say, that although I don't think it was mandatory, I was surprised that the candidate was neither a woman nor a minority.
The Tall Stacks are Coming! The Tall Stacks are Coming!
So I am glad to see them raise it, but still make it affordable ($20). That's a great price, but should also allow the festival to be financially successful, and bring more than a million people to the riverfront. It's a great celebration of Cincinnati History and great music... I love Tall Stacks!
Public Sales start in November, so keep an eye on the website for ticket info.
