Roses for the Salem Super Cruise. Despite a rainy Friday it was a big success. How popular is it? Estimates were pegged at 20,000 people within the city limits last Saturday. For contrast, the Cleveland Indians are averaging 16,833 per game this season. There were some minor issues and nuisance stuff. Idiots too. Like someone calling a local TV station claiming the Cruise had been called off.?Or the knucklehead on a motorcycle making like Evel Knievel with cops in pursuit as he raced out of town. But if it didn't go well you wouldn't keep getting thousands of people back each year. You wouldn't get all the vendors back. And, most importantly, you wouldn't have the city supporting it. Fix any wrinkles that need smoothed and keep bringing it back. Thanks to the city leadership, the police, the sponsors, the volunteers, those showing their classics and all of those who attended, enjoyed, appreciated and behaved.
