From the Mail: Buffalo and Cleveland

Craig Howard writes:

Ah, Cleveland, the only city perhaps more maligned than my poor old Buffalo.

Yes, Cleveland, the butt of more jokes than there are asses to tell them. The town whose boy mayor was Dennis Kucinich when the Cuyahoga River caught on fire. The home of the 'Full Cleveland,' the double-knit polyester suit. It used to be and probably still is the case that whenever a comedian made a joke about lost airline luggage, the luggage never ended up in smog-choked Los Angeles or even in snow-bound Buffalo -- hell no! It ended up in Cleveland.
