Lake Envy

Mike Roberts is a true hero of mine. His writing and experience in Cleveland journalism is a holy grail for me. He really hit it head-on with the lake ("Lame Plan," May 2011). On a drive with my dad to college in Milwaukee in 1970, we drove up the Chicago lakefront and then the Milwaukee lakefront. I was stunned. These towns had beautiful, fabulous, accessible lakes. I almost became bitter. Cleveland's lake was ore boats and power plants. It made me feel so angry. It was good to see my emotions in print.
