ERIEVIEW CONSTRUCTION WORKER

A FEW YEARS BACK THE CITY OF CLEVELAND WAS CONSTRUCTING AN URBAN
DEVELOPMENT PROJECT CALLED ERIEVIEW. THE PROJECT HAD BEEN BESET BY A
NUMBER OF STUMBLING BLOCKS FROM FINANCING TO RACIAL TROUBLE.
ONE WINDY DAY A WORKER FELL FROM ONE OF THE UPPER-MOST FLOORS TO HIS
DEATH. AS A LASTING REMEMBERANCE, HIS WORKERS ON THE LOWER FLOORS
QUOTED HIM AS SAYING, AS HE FLEW BY "OH, SHIT"
