RANDOM thoughts about place

4/3/2016

Hey y'all,
Talk to me. I'm about to start calling downtown "Down Tha Way" again. Just like the old days. It was like other kids at school had so much pride in being from Over-the-Rhine and West End. There was the hit song and dance and I would see "DTW" everywhere. Although this was a time where a lot of neighborhood children had pride in their places, it was also a time where folks would get beat up for repping one place over the other. 
I have questions: 
1) Do youth and adults still have this much pride? (I'm sure my perception was different as an adolescent)
2) If not, is there a way to replicate this and eliminate the violence and or foster healthy competition? 
3) ???Your questions???

I'm just gonna murk(sp) out and do the Down Da Way. Enjoy the song!
