Ragnar, if that is really your name.

You are very creepy and a racist to boot.

You don't have to be stupid to be a conservative but most conservatives are stupid.

Is Nutting sacred?

"Diversity" does ZILCH for economic development. What diversity DOES bring is crime and white hipsters who praise Occupy Wall Street while sipping Starbucks coffee and texting on their iPhone.

Cranberry Township is the fastest growing area of Pennsylvania. It is booming, physically & economically. It is VERY diverse-diverse white people and some Asians.

I guess no one told Cranberry that they should bus in a whole crowd of Detroit refugees if they REALLY want to turn the corner on their economic growth plan.

To have a vibrant city that will attract younger and smarter people it will need to have some kind of diversity.

A city without diversity is just another boring suburban neighborhood.

Wheeling has chased out most of it's diversity and now it is only left with what?

Who wants to come to a city that is full of stubborn old money socialites and those at the fringes of society, who have been to stubborn to be forced out?

You did it to yourselves.

Maybe you can tear down another historic neighborhood or Mount de Chantal Visitation Academy and maybe get rid of that old eyesore of a suspension bridge.

Heck you may as well legalize prostitution, that would attract lots of folks with money.
