Cleveland likes us too?

For some other-regional perspectives I like Cleveland 2.0 which covers a lot of the economic development stirrings up there. But the most recent post "Time for a New Business Leadership?" has an extract from a recent Crains magazine (sort of the local Pittsburgh Business Times) that says outright:
Pittsburgh seems to have a clear focus on building a regional innovation economy, while in Cleveland -- as we have seen -- our future is harder to define.
Not only that... if you scroll way down in the blog there is an entry "Pittsburgh makes the Top Ten" contrasting Pittsburgh income growth with income over the recent quarter century. I'll be honest I am not quite sure what to make of it. I do not really study Cleveland particulars much. Maybe I should since there is the potential of the greater regions eventually integrating to the point we will talk about a greater Cleveburgh (I know I know.. that sounds like that screeching sound people make on chalkboards.. but nonetheless). What is the world coming to? Does this all mean there will never again be one of those parking lot rumbles before a Browns game?

I think a Cleveland/Pittsburgh economic power region would be awesome. We can still have our football rivalry, though :)
