Mallory plans census announcement

Whether Cincinnati is a growing city or a declining one matters for a lot of reasons – political clout, federal aid and community pride.

That’s why Mayor Mark Mallory will announce Friday the beginning of what he predicts will be an extraordinary effort to count Cincinnatians in 2010, the next U.S. Census.

Mallory will be issuing an edict declaring that no more white people are allowed to leave the city and that blacks will have to stop shooting each other during the census taking year.

I thought homosexuals were supposed to be flocking to the city after Article 12 was repealed...what happened to that promise? What else needs to be done to make Cincinnati attractive to the homosexual community? We want to be inclusive.

Just be smart and don't take the census on Father's Day. Cincinnati seems to lose population on that event.

Mayor Zippy can make all the blowhard predictions he wants. After all, that's all he's been doing since he stumped for that Mayor's job is blow a lot of hot air. Forget about doing some real work, like digging in on all those campaign promises.

2010? Forget about it. I'll be long gone by then. Zip can take his census numbers & shove 'em in his ear. As a matter of fact, Zip will be on his way out of City Hall by that time. Woo Hoo!

William Senior will have a chance to be the babby daddy to many more kids by 2010.
The old coot hasn't quit yet.

To the idiot who left the comments at 8:10PM; changing the rules doesn't count, you have to get rid of all of the bigots and neocons. Even still, should that happen I doubt my more educated and financialy stronger gay brothers and sisters would want anything to do with Cincinnati. We've all moved out to the suburbs, bought nicer bigger homes where our neighbors are good people who don't realy care about gay or straight anymore.

Build the streetcars, then you can count the homeless people living in them in the next census.

Anonymous 10:01 AM, I agree that we need to get rid of the bigots in this city, but what does neocon have to do with it? There are lots of GAY neocons, including Andrew Sullivan and myself. Glad you are enjoying your suburban home, while I enjoy my loft downtown Cinti. Cheers!

No need to do a census here. Just use Detroit's population decline percentage to project Cincinnati's population decline percentage. MMM has done so much to make us like them that the numbers are probably interchangable at this point.

Good riddance to another right-wingut-job. http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/080405/clsa013.html?.v=11

Listen, stop criticizing the Mayor! He and his brother Dale have a plan to increase the population of the City. They're going to import them from the prison system and have them live at the, Crossroads in Oakley sponsored, CityLink. That, combined with the Volunteers of America's program to import convicted sex offenders into our city ought to do the trick; don't you think?

Hot real estate tip for Mayor M: Parkview, the former estate of Boss Cox, is for sale! What could be more appropriate than for the man who brought back the political boss era to live in the house of the last political boss? And, appopro of 3M's back to the future streetcar idea, it would help establish the "uptown" link to the streetcars, too. As archetectural historian Walter E. Langsam notes in an ENQUIRER piece Sunday by Steve Kemme, "'It's no coinicidence' Langsam said with a smile.'That the trolley line came by here when Boss Cox built his house here.'"

Sure is good to see there is nothing new under the sun, innt?

1:02 - Mark = Boss Cox?????

Cox ruled Cincinnati ... Mark dresses well (except for the glasses).

Come now. The Mallory family uses Cincinnati as thier own personal hog trough. Ask folks in his old neighborhood about their feelings on his ruling by fiat, or just look through blogs featuring the mighty M. He took the demotion to Mayor from his state job just so he could be a big fish in a small pond. Have faith, he's just getting started here.
