This storie was probably buried underneath the mountain of Manson stories. I ‘ve never heard of this until today when I was reading a list someone had posted on Good List Daily and mentioned a walk along the Cuyahoga River as one of the things they were grateful for. I googled the river to see how beautiful it was and found story after story about the river burning.
I’d rather read first hand experiences.

Although I am a news junkie and always has been, I have no memories of the river burning. 1969 was as everyone knows, a turbulent year in America (and its not just because the Indians were probably 20 games out of first place in June), and I am looking forward to reading these articles, because for some reason, I missed it when it happened. Of course, several years later, when Cleveland became a national joke with our Mayor Ralph Perk, and then the city defaulted (which is another story, starring Dennis Kucinich, who was unjustly blamed in my opinion), this was just one of the reasons. Thanks for those memories!
