Jim Borgman and Cincinnati Enquirer celebrate 30 years together

According to E&P, the Cincinnati Enquirer will publish a special section of the paper next Tuesday on the anniversary of Jim Borgman’s arrival at their newspaper.

The section will include cartoons by the Pulitzer Prize-winning Borgman, comments by people who have been the subject of his commentary, a Q&A, the results of the “Borgman Challenge” cartoon contest, and other content.

Borgman told E&P that the section (which will coincidentally be published the day of his wedding anniversary) is a real honor. He added that the newspaper may be doing the special section partly to make up for the cancellation of a 25th-anniversary public event that had been scheduled for October 2001. “The invitations were sent out Sept. 10,” recalled Borgman. “After the next day, no one was in the mood to celebrate.”

Jim,

I have to laugh at the people who are promoting the Banks Project. I have already sent an e-mail about the Freedom Center and advised that in the early Spring they should move anything valuable to the third floor.

Nothing has changed the river for the last fifty years. In March of 1964 I was assigned to Flood Detail. On the Third Street Ramp leading to the unfinished Fort Washington Way I got into my row-boat and began to patrol the ‘Bottoms.’

We were able to freely row in and out of buildings at the second floor level along second street. The current was too strong to go to Front Street. Most of the buildings were residential at that time. Since then, everybody moved to higher ground. except for the Bengals and Reds.

Now, we are asked to help put a great deal of money into developing the same area into expensive properties that are due to be flooded, soon. Isn’t that funny?, or is it just plain stupid?
