It's an Honor


Notorious Cleveland 1

Here in Cleveland, we love our scalawags and scamps, our crooks, cads and clowns. They give us character, a history. They make Cleveland a real city, unlike all those prefab, just-add-water Sun Belt towns. Just like we’re half appalled, half entertained when our unemployed cousin gets drunk at our wedding reception and brags about his time in jail, a mischievous part of us loves our history of vice. We’re fascinated by our bank robbers, bribe takers and brothels — even our mad butchers — as long as they’re safely in the past. And just like we love our uncle who wears the powder-blue suit and too-short tie, we love our city’s bloopers and bad ideas. We tell Cleveland jokes and laugh. We’ve lived so long with our moments of citywide shame, we find them endearing. Hence, this collection of the most notorious people, incidents and places in Cleveland’s history, all the way from the 1790s to 2006. Notorious enough to capture our fascination, to keep us buzzing (even 200 years later) but not so disturbing as to haunt us. That’s why you’ll find murders, but not recent murders, in the pages to come, and why you won’t see stories of suffering children (Beverly Potts or the Kirtland cult killings). In fact, we want to know who or what you can’t resist reading about. We’ve even laid odds on it.
