Late last week LeBron James announced he's bringing his talents back to the shores of Lake Erie. In a letter published on Sports Illustrated he wrote; "who am I to hold a grudge?" It seems Cleveland fans feel the same way, already flocking the streets of downtown holding signs declaring the King's return and buying tees that say "Forgiven."

The bluest city in Ohio rolls out the red carpet. Friday morning on The Sound of Ideas we'll look at the impact of securing the Republican national convention in 2016. Is Ohio still struggling to find the jobs it lost when the recession hit? The argument turns political--we'll look at the numbers, instead of the accusations. And what do you do when competing rallies both book time on Public Square? Join us for the reporters' roundtable getting underway at 9:00 on 90.3.
For the first time since the late 1940s, Baby Boomers are not the biggest generation. Millennials have stolen that crown. The shift happened somewhere near 2012, so it’s no coincidence that 2012 was the first year since 1976 that Baby Boomer voters picked the losing candidate in a presidential election. Boomers and Millennials differ in many ways, and those differences are changing America.
The Republican National Committee has announced what some consider an unconventional choice for its 2016 presidential nominating convention: Cleveland. How, exactly, did Cleveland beat out Cincinnati, Columbus, Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Phoenix and, finally, Dallas? We'll find out Wednesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas. We'll also look at logistics, local costs and the benefits and potential hassles, too, that the convention might bring. Join host Mike McIntyre.
Affirmative action based on race is widely used for college admissions. But Georgetown University law professor Sheryll Cashin argues that perhaps that's an outdated model, and suggests that instead, affirmative action should be based on geographic location. That's her argument in her new book, "Place not Race." But not everyone agrees race based affirmative action is outdated, and some say it's still very much necessary.
