Exit Interview with Brent Larkin Brent Larkin, the eyes and ears of Cleveland news for over 30 years, has turned in his reporters' notebook. From Larkin's early days as a Cleveland Press reporter to his time as The Plain Dealer editorial director, he exposed scandals, uncovered corruption and offered his two cents worth on just about everything. A political junkie, a sports fanatic and a clamp dog all in one package. Wednesday on the Sound of Ideas, we'll sit down with the man who has become an icon in journalism for Northeast Ohio. Hear this unique perspective on the region's past and get his take on what's next, Wednesday at 9 on 90.3.

Mr. Kucinich is the only politician in this town who has stood up to the powers that have run this city for decades.  Both the PD and especially Mr. Larkin have went out of their way to attack Mr. Kucinich and have attempted to unseat him every 2 years.  I read just yesterday that everyone is surprised that no populist political leader has emerged in the county.  Well, Mr. Kucinich has been one and people have seen how he has been treated.
