Abandoned Dentist Office

I hate to admit it, but it’s been awhile since I’ve been to the dentist. In fact, the last oral care office I visited was abandoned: no doctor, no box of cheap toys to take as a prize from for having no cavities. A friend of mine working on a nearby project showed me this place.

Pastel colored walls, 90s office equipment now considered “vintage,” a microwave, and one remaining dental chair. What looked like a tiny practice probably saw no shortage of patients who sat in that chair and then rinsed in the adjoining, out-of-place looking sink.

A Proposed Soccer Stadium, A Stalled Development, and a Question of How We Define What Exactly is "Cincinnati"

In June 2017, local soccer club FC Cincinnati announced it was considering three potential sites to build a stadium upon. The thought of a team labeled as "Cincinnati" playing in Kentucky has drawn perhaps the strongest reactions on both sides of the argument and river. Would it be a good location? What does it say about how we view Northern Kentucky and define "Cincinnati?"

A friend and I sat down to make our cases.

Toynbee Tiles and House of Hades

The most recent record on the map was from 2006, just over a decade behind the present. I scribbled down the locations in my notebook, determined to go looking the next day. I spent nearly my entire lunch break wandering and coming up short until I spotted one near a crosswalk. Maybe the map had been off a bit, I wasn't expecting to find anything here. I waited for traffic to subside, jogged out to the middle of the road and knelt down while an idling cab driver eyed me suspiciously.
