Pappy Bush's grandfather is buried in Columbus and was the CEO of Buckeye Steel, back in the day. But as you know, it is rare that family businesses make it to the third generation. Give Bush 41 credit for not being a complete idiot and squandering what God gave him.
That said, why do you lefties have such a problem with oil? It has created the most advanced civilization in the history of mankind. It saves forests from being clear cut and burned for energy. Thanks to Rockefeller, it made NE Ohio a financially and culturally prosperous part of the country. NE Ohio is still living off the wealth accumulated during the oil rush and manufacturing years.
You would be South Carolina or West Virginia strip mining country without oil.
NE Ohio's accumulated wealth, huh. Tell that to Youngstown, Cleveland, Akron, and Canton. I'm sure they'll tell you to seek professional help.

Everybody talks about all those decrepit cities, but everybody forgets the suburbs are some of the finest and wealthiest in the country. Strongsville, Avon, Westlake, Beechwood, etc. are all doing just fine. Everybody also forgets all the private companies like MTD (the General Motors of lawn mowers) all over NE Ohio.

Cleveland has the Cleveland Clinic, a world class symphony and art museum, and Case Western. Those things didn't happen by accident or because Obama bought phone minutes for people. They happened because you had insanely wealthy enterprises plopping down money to build those things.

NE Ohio is doing just fine ... it just isn't growing anymore so it doesn't have a sexy reputation like the southern cities do.

The surrounding suburbs of any city in the US has always retained people with higher educational attainment and six figure incomes. What's new? White flight occurs from the core of the cities, businesses follow, merchants go where the money is and less crime. Not hard to figure that out.

Even if a black business stays in an urban area, there's only so much money that can be made off of people who have Dollar Store budgets and self-destructive behaviors. Go figure.
Liquor stores, chicken places, hair & barber shops, mechanic garages will always make money in the hood, oh and funeral homes.

Speaking of Funeral Homes more and more of them in small towns even cities are being bought by large organizations and just keeping a local last name on the Sign. Is that happening in the hood too?
