Cleveland, The Rodney Dangerfield of Cities

I am reading Jim Bouton's baseball classic Ball Four. I ran across this passage which cracked me up:
Flying in to Cleveland last night I thought about life in this great American city and decided that if you were going to crash on a Cleveland flight it would be better if it was an inbound flight.
Bouton has the same sarcastic, dry sense of humor I occasionally display around my family and friends.

I have never had the pleasure of visiting Cleveland.

I used to go there back in the 1990's, I had some customers east of the city.

I drive to Cleveland everyday. Armed and with the doors locked. Typical Liberal-run shit-hole city.
