One Cincinnati claim to fame is that Union Terminal is considered the inspiration for the Hall of Justice where the Superfriends managed their operations. Union Terminal was built in 1933 much in the grandeur of Union Station or Grand Central Station as a train depot. As train travel diminished especially after World War II, the site became rarely used. In the 80’s it saw brief life as a shopping mall and most recently it is the permanent home of the Museum Center housing the Cincinnati History Museum and the Museum of Natural History and Science.
Well after years the Terminal is badly needing repairs. Rather than propose a new bond levy on property taxes, the County instead is asking voters (with Issue 8) to consider raising the sales tax by .25% for five years. Unlike the horrible deal voters agreed to with the Bengals and Reds Stadiums whose sales tax never has expired, this tax would only be limited to 5 years and end automatically. A huge selling point IMO and the primary reason I am voting for it.
Now about those Superfriends. Superman was a reporter by day, Wonder Woman held many jobs usually with the government, and Acquaman….well he didn’t have a job as far as I can remember. So none of them had money yet they somehow they could afford a swanky headquarters with all the latest technology. And who probably had to foot the bill? Batman. And he earned his money the old fashioned way: He inherited it. Bunch of slackers.
