We were offered media credentials for the historic Cleveland Cavaliers Championship Parade on June 22, 2016 but did not apply because we wanted to be part of the people celebrating rather than standing inside barricades. And we are so glad we did. Watching parade highlights later in the day on TV we were amazed at how what they showed on TV was so different from what we experienced. TV showed fans behind barricades with the streets wide open as the parade circled the Q and Progressive Field. But on East 9th Street there were no barriers and fans converged from both sides of the street almost meeting in the middle. Mounted and other Police did their best to keep people back as the parade came down East 9th. But as you will see in the videos it was very close up and very real.
We were shocked and saddened to hear about the passing of Mayor/Senator/Governor George Voinovich. We just saw the Senator on Friday night at the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the independence of the Republic of Slovenia event at City Hall.
Pictures and more will be posted soon but here is the video of the Senator's remarks that evening.

As techies, makers and, yes, geeks, we appreciatye that things don't just magically appear. They take design and hard work. Witness the beautiful new monument to legendary disc jockey Alan Freed.
The Alan Freed memorail unveiling ceremony was world class but there was little mention of the designers and craftsmen behind the project. Michael Johns of the Johns-Carabelli Co., producers of the monument, shared the background and hsitory of the project.
Alan Freed was a Cleveland disc jockey who has been called the "Father of Rock and Roll." He coined and popularized the term "rock and roll" and produced the nation's first rock concert, the Moondog Coronation Ball at the Cleveland Arena, in 1952. This was an important part of the decision to have the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum built in Cleveland, Ohio.
A memorial was held and an unveiling of a monument at Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland on May 7, 2016. and hundreds of fans and music industry people attended.

The Great Lakes Geek thinks that programmers of his generation (harrumph!) are better because they didn't have all the visual tools. In fact the best learning experience, in his not so humble opinion, is writing directly to the processor, without an operating system.
The author (cartoonist Grady Klein) wrote two volumes of The Cartoon Introduction to Economics with the intent to make a potentially dry topic, palatable and even fun. He tries it again here with The Cartoon Introduction to Statistics.
I would guess that the audience for the book is youngsters who are interested in math, science and learning beyond their age and school coursework or older students who are struggling with their Intro to Stats course and need the extra help.
