  • Southern loop may be dream really worth dreaming about

    And there probably weren’t a lot of votes to be had by aspiring politicians.

    Instead, the Gene Snyder Freeway was a dream. It is was completed a small piece a little at a time.

    And, who would have thought the two bridges over the Ohio River would be built?
