Re: “North Coast Men's Chorus: Our Gay Apparel

Yeah, it was fun. Lot of new Christmas songs which is always nice this time of year, but simply switching the lyrics of two songs (Hallelujah Chorus and Jingle Bells) doesn't really count as anything new imo. And guys dressed as elves and prancing deer and women is only funny for so long-- even if the men ARE gay.

There were some serious songs which were done very well.

One thing that bothered me a lot was the part where they held up pictures of prominent gay men--Pee Wee Herman, Richard Simons, and then a very dour looking Donald Trump. I don't get it; I've never seen anyone prior make the claim that Trump is gay. I don't know what statement it was they were trying to make. I hope it wasn't meant to be derogatory toward Trump, as I really had thought that the days of equating 'gay' with 'bad' were long gone.

It all does give me hope though. There was a time when if anyone spoke of homosexuality, let alone create a whole show about it, the majority of people would have been made very uncomfortable by it. Maybe the day will come when we can speak about vaccine injuries, and those who we love who are injured, out in the open too without being denigrated.

Re: “A Place at the Table

With all the debate recently for amending the United States Constitution in
favor of certain issues and/or those constituencies, perhaps a
more appropriate amendment should guarantee each citizen of the United
States the right to food, clothing, shelter and medical care. Poverty is
defined as the condition of being poor or lacking the necessary means of
support to live or meet needs. Today we read of enormous corporate tax
breaks, outsourcing of jobs overseas and outrageous salaries "earned" by
athletes/entertainers. More recently came the revelation of the billions
of dollars spent by the U.S. on two wars. In the meantime, the
number of those in poverty continues to increase. The Old Testament of the
Bible often makes references to the promised land flowing with milk and
honey. All one has to do in this country is take a trip to the grocery
story or department store and bear witness to the fact that if anywhere was
close to exhibiting the characteristics of "the promised land", this country
is it. Yet somehow we are still unable to meet the four basic needs every
citizen has. Some would argue that this proposal is an extension of
Socialism/Communism. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Socialism/Communism is a political or economic theory in which community
members own all property, resources, and the means of production, and
control the distribution of goods. No one is suggesting the replacement of
Capitalism; an economic system in which the means of production and
distribution are privately owned, and prices are chiefly determined by open
competition in a free market. What is being suggested is that in this land
of surplus "milk and honey", there is absolutely no reason why the four
basic needs of every U.S. citizen cannot be met. Some would argue that food
stamps, thrift stores, public housing and Medicaid already meet these needs
but in the words of President John F. Kennedy, "this country is divided
between those who have never had it so good and those who know we can do
better". I think we can do better. Resolved, it shall be the right of
every United States citizen (in order to further guarantee the right to
life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) to receive food, clothing,
shelter and medical care that is adequate to meet their basic needs.

Now, that being written {uh oh here it comes} everyone in this great country
of ours would agree that the most effective anti-poverty solution is gainful
employment. This Administration {along with Congress} didn't take it's eye
off the ball; didn't drop the ball and certainly didn't fumble the ball.
They kicked it down the road in the form of a onside kick. It has now
mutated into the form of a hot potato that no one wants to touch.

Well folks, it's time to prime the pump. One solution is Workfare whereby
those able bodied citizens are required to perform some type of labor in
order to receive assistance. This will help restore their dignity {as they
continue to search for even more meaningful work} while at the same time
allowing a large group of people to start purchasing various goods and
services.

As for getting people back to work the solution is not as complicated as it
may appear to be. We need to bring back a agency similar {but not
identical} to the Work Progress Administration {WPA} which should take a
two-pronged approach. One is the most obvious; hire people to perform the
very services {and more} that the private sector will never engage in simply
because it is not profitable to do so. The second approach is a wee bit
more complicated but can be successful by utilizing private-public
partnerships. Let the governments {at all levels} develop a plan to share
{temporarily} in the salary expense of unemployed people so that they could
work full time, re-gain their lost skills and eventually retain a full time
position paid by the private company. This would result in a immediate
restoration of lost government revenues as well as help to prime the pump
for the new found consumer demand. Increasing demand will result in the
need for increased supply and hence a increase in production which will
result in increased employment. You could think of this stimulus plan as
a rocket booster that slowly fades away as the economy picks up. Isnt this
what government is supposed to do beyond providing safety for its citizens?
Is it too late now? I hope not; but to continue to waste time over which
side wins {while the rest of the country goes to hell} risks moving Americas
dissatisfaction with government to the disbelief of the legitimacy of those
who do govern. The question before us all is this: how far down must this
country sink before it becomes clear and apparent that current government
officials have forfeited their right to govern?

Government was never intended to be a ongoing circus act of constantly
handicapping the next election while nothing gets done due to this self-
perpetuating form of gridlock. I strongly suggest that members of both
branches and parties start making a better effort to get to know each other
more personally. Whether it be over breakfast, lunch or dinner on the golf
course, in a restaurant or the local disco tech you the leaders of our
nation need to familiarize yourselves with what is at stake in the other
person's life and realize that compromising on a policy is not the same as
compromising your values. Ladies and gentlemen, let's get to work by
getting this country moving again. And no, I'm not running for office but I
am Joe Bialek and I approve this message.

Re: “Cavaliers vs. Charlotte Hornets

Since the NFL mercifully put Hue Jackson's comedy act on Thursday night, the Cavs can give sports fans a sunny Sunday afternoon to celebrate a champion.

Very happy, upbeat play. Singers in good voice. Costumes relevant. Scenery helps to make the feeling come alive. One of the best we have attended in a very long time.

Re: “"Talk Radio", an adult comedy

The movie also has a few elements from the book - "Talked to Death: The Life and Murder of Alan Berg" by Stephen Singular. In June 1984, Berg - a popular shock-jock in Denver - was assassinated in the driveway of his home by members of The Order, a white nationalist group.

Very disappointed! Paid to see Daughtry rock and roll show at the Cleveland ROCKZINO. Got Acoustic show instead. We would not have bought tickets if we new it was going to be an acoustic show. Got baited and switched! Very unfair!

Re: “One World Day

This is such a great melting of Cleveland's cultures - food, dance, costumes, vendors - can't wait to see hula dancers in the Polish Gardens at 3pm - there will be more dancing on the stage in the English Gardens as well as Lebonese dancers in their garden - so much more to see and do

There needs to be a periodic reset for music fans that this Beach Boys is the Mike Love/Bruce Johnston version. Brian Wilson - with Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin - is on a world tour that celebrates the 50th anniversary of "Pet Sounds".

It would have been a good date to offer (deep) ticket discounts for fans with a student ID -- one last blast before Chuck Berry's "School Days" leads the all-request hour.
