I am writing in reference to the decision to give Cleveland the honor of playing home to the rock-and-roll Hall of Fame, when we know Philadelphia is undoubtedly the birthplace of rock-and-roll. I urge all Philadelphia musicians who believe that Philadelphia is the birthplace of rock-and-roll to withhold their material from Cleveland and for Philadelphia to establish a rock-and-roll museum here. I urge people to call or write to city officials, radio stations, musicians, etc., and give their support to this issue.

The AFL has wanted to create a rival for the Soul since the team joined the league in 2004. It once put Dallas in the same division, hoping to mimic Eagles-Cowboys, but that didn't work. There was a brief period when the Soul and the New York Dragons used to fight each other before exhibition games, but that fizzled out when the New York franchise folded. Currently, Cleveland is the villain of choice among Soul followers. A rivalry needs animosity (which the Soul and Gladiators share)

The Denver Nuggets won their ninth straight game with a 111-103 victory Saturday night over the Cavaliers in Cleveland. The Nuggets, who have won 15 of 17, are on their longest winning streak since posting 10 straight victories in 2005. Danilo Gallinari led Denver with 19 points, and Kenneth Faried added 17. Kyrie Irving led Cleveland with 26 points, but was plagued by foul trouble. The all-star guard picked up his fourth foul with five minutes remaining in the third quarter and went to the bench with the Nuggets leading by 72-61.

Airbnb, the online marketplace where people can share their homes as short-term rentals, said demand for housing accommodations was "spiking" during both the Republican and Democratic conventions. In Cleveland, 1,900 visitors are staying at Airbnb listings this week, nearly four times more than other weeks. In the Philadelphia area, more than 5,200 people will stay in Airbnb homes, rooms, and apartments during the Democratic National Convention, about 2½ times more than usual in July.

THE CLEVELAND Gladiators got under the Soul's collective skin before the game and stayed there long enough to ruin Philadelphia's home opener, 68-62. A game that was supposed to be further affirmation of the strides the Soul has taken in burying last year's mess deep in the litter box instead revealed some clumps. Cleveland quarterback John Dutton threw nine touchdown passes, but it was the Soul's lack of discipline that had head coach Doug Plank fuming afterward. "Tonight, we established a new low for our team," Plank said.

CLEVELAND - Like Donald Trump, the Republican National Convention was anything but conventional. It included sharp divisions, flashy entrances, calls to lock up Hillary Clinton, and internal feuds that went public. Here are the images, messages, and themes that stood out from the four days in Cleveland: America is a troubled and scary place. The nation is in decline economically and morally, according to the speakers at the "Q," Cleveland's basketball arena. Constitutional rights, trampled.

Never mind that Cleveland has been most famous in recent years for rivers that are so polluted they catch fire and the reek from Lake Erie that's severe enough to singe the eyebrows - just wait until 2080. While New York City will be parched, Iowa and Nebraska will be a desert, and Miami will be fighting the ocean in its streets, a new study shows that Cleveland will be one of the "garden spots of tomorrow. " In the Great Greenhouse of the next century, as predicted by scientists studying the effects of pollution on global weather, Cleveland will have a balmy climate and plenty of water.

The Cleveland Gladiators got under the Soul's collective skin before their game and stayed there long enough to ruin the team's Arena Football League home opener, 68-62, on Sunday at the Wells Fargo Center. Cleveland quarterback John Dutton threw nine touchdown passes, but it was the Soul's lack of discipline that had head coach Doug Plank fuming afterward. "Tonight, we established a new low for our team," Plank said. "This was certainly the worst game of the season for us. I'm just disappointed.

  As lifelong Eagles fans, hope thrives despite zero Super Bowl wins and an overall title drought of 55 years. Why shouldn't it, we ask? True, there is a new rookie head coach, a new rookie quarterback, suspect talent at a few key positions, and low regard for our squad by the pundits. But it is also true that the Eagles are currently undefeated and we fans are actively engaged to help influence the outcome. We help provide one of the best home field advantages in the league.

CLEVELAND - Before he can get about the business of making America great again, Donald J. Trump has decided to make Americans afraid again. His just-concluded Republican National Convention, capped by what may have been the bleakest acceptance speech by a major-party presidential nominee , painted a picture of a nation rotting from the inside and beset by terrorist enemies. Trump's tone opened an opportunity for Hillary Clinton as she defines her vision and the stakes of the election this week at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, strategists said.

Auditioning, apparently, for the role of U.S. attorney general at the GOP reality show in Cleveland on Tuesday, Gov. Christie partied like it was 2009. That was the year an unlikely yet curiously refreshing county freeholder turned federal prosecutor won the job of Garden State governor with a mash-up of earthy, yet sophisticated, political choptitude. Four years later, the glow of his talent got tarnished by Bridgegate. It further faded during a steadily less impressive second term that saw him frequently and egregiously AWOL from that unglamorous Trenton job he was elected to do. And then came the governor's too-late, too-little campaign for president, which puttered on until sputtering out, mercifully, in February.

CLEVELAND - Political Twitter was still aflame the morning after a sharp-eyed journalist pointed out similarities between Melania Trump's convention speech last night and the address Michelle Obama gave in at the Democratic National Convention in 2008. "Trump's laziness, incompetence and dishonesty in one," wrote the Vox staffer Matthew Yglesias. Users gleefully appended the hashtag #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes to rap lyrics and lines from famous speeches. In downtown Cleveland, more than 12 hours after the speech had aired, crowds milled on East Fourth Street as Andrea Mitchell discussed the purportedly pilfered paragraphs from MSNBC's mobile anchor desk.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 No place for guns There will be thousands of angry people in Cleveland this week legally voicing their concerns about the Republican candidate and the state of our nation. Among them, whatever their motivations, will be people visibly carrying all kinds of weapons, from pistols to assault weapons, loaded with bullets, some capable of piercing bulletproof vests ("A peaceful, focused protest," Monday). "Open carry" is allowed in Ohio. Its exercise seems foolish and provocative, especially now, when shootings, ugly discourse, and heated political rhetoric make us all on edge and sad. At the least, open carry is confusing for police officers, who deserve all the support they can get. What if a police officer - making a split-second decision - kills someone walking around in camouflage gear and toting a long weapon?

CLEVELAND - Not to go all H.L. Mencken on you right off the bat, but the Bard of Baltimore pretty much nailed political conventions when writing about a Republican one held here in 1924. He wrote that the convention will open with a windy speech by "some dreadful mountebank" and then "another mountebank will repeat the same rubbish in other words. " I'm not totally prejudging the Republican National Convention (OK, maybe a little), and Lord knows Democrats next week also will talk tons of trash, but some things haven't much changed in 92 years - or in 80 years.

CLEVELAND - I was standing in the shade of the gazebo where Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old boy with an Airsoft gun, was gunned down by a Cleveland police officer on a cold November day in 2014, when another journalist walked over and muttered the news that three lawmen had just been gunned down in Baton Rouge. The nation's downward spiral of violence and rage had just taken another shocking spin, as the nation's social and TV networks began to crackle with fresh anxiety. And yet here at Cudell Rec Center playground on Cleveland's west side - a landmark in the twisting road from Ferguson to Dallas and Baton Rouge - there was an almost surreal calm.

CLEVELAND - In the end, Scott Williams was the only one in his crew to get here. The Philadelphia activists had spent months planning a march meant to "shut down the Democratic National Convention," and had decided to attend its counterpart in Cleveland, "Shut Down Trump and the RNC. " But with a week to go, there was too much left to do in Philadelphia, so Williams boarded a minivan for Ohio by himself Saturday night. By Sunday afternoon, he was among hundreds of protesters arriving here, many of whom - like the Republican delegates - came from across the country.
