How seriously is the entire city of Cleveland taking the Gay Games? The Cleveland Plain Dealer's editorial today is about making sure the Games stay in their city, despite the lawsuit from Cleveland Synergy Foundation:
By their nature, the 2014 Gay Games, expected to attract more than 10,000 athletes, will promote the kind of respect and understanding that builds friendship, not fear. The games also will be a fine example -- along with the new casino, the medical mart/convention center project and the Flats East Bank retail-hotel complex -- that Cleveland is a city on the move. Let's not get sidetracked by events over which we have no control.
