Louis Stokes cared deeply for this nation -- he was a true public servant.
I'll build a draft beer/wine/cocktail system that will be light-years ahead of anything in this city. Stop by and see the difference.
Rock is one of a handful of photographers who expertly propelled their art onto the main stage with the artists they chronicled.
So, I am a ne ohioan, lived in Ashtabula 40 some years, before I began nomadic life. My sister, who had moved to Denver years before I did, laughed at my "Midwest accent". I protested, of course, as I had this grammatically correct need to enunciate my words correctly, I have grown a large vocabulary and generally try to say what I mean, and mean what I say, a distressingly rare thing these days. But, she did clarify this accent to amount to a vowel difference, ahia, indeed was how she presented this, though, I have never said Ohio any other way than with long O's, but nasally, yes sometimes the vowels come out nasally and drawn out, something I thought was Appalachian more than Ohioan. Within our own family, Mom said maptress and chimbly...where she found the p and the b in those words, I haven't got the foggiest idea. Daddy was the closest to the hill Williams, but he spoke like everyone else in the area...and both my parents were born and raised in Ashtabula County, not leaving until after the 80s stripped the jobs away. Now, since I have lived in all four time zones and on all four coasts...my accent is undeniably muddied and not so identifiable any more, but I worked to be less nasally, but sometimes Soda comes out pop, anyhow. Somebody makes fun of my accent, I ask them to read Conneaut....then I can laugh at them. It most definitely is not con-noot. Ashtabula seems hard for many, too, especially inflection wise. It is ash tah bula, not Ash tab oola. Lol
Maybe the era of point/counterpoint is ending, as readers have increased subscriptions to the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, and NPR stations are experiencing a jump in the Nielsen ratings. After all, if you're still willing to pay for your news sources, you'll spend your money on those that have reputations for quality reporting, and retain international bureaus and investigative teams. Those who want their news for free (and for its entertainment value) are more likely to be drawn to sources that tell them what they want to hear. So skip the phoney "balance" features: tell us what's really happening, and don't sugarcoat it, and you'll earn my subscription.
The more snarky and opinionated the food critics become, the more snarky the "reviews" you'll find at Yelp.

If I did the math right, it's $230 per square foot for a cracker box in a slum. Seriously? I don't think so. You can get a bungalow in less-risky West Park for half that much. And 50% larger, too. Plus yard and garage.
Ask the man who knows.

If anyone out there collects artifacts related to FDR (32nd POTUS, 1933-1945), I have something very rare that I might be willing to sell, for the right price. I also collect railroad stuff...but electric-powered only (subways, elevated trains, streetcars, trolley buses, etc.)

I can guess which place is the hipster taco joint but I won't say. Loved that description!
It is - yet again - the Triumph of Politics; which means the defeat of common-sense.
a few weeks after this place opened the arrogant fucks kicked me out for wearing a baseball cap. Apparently I was out of dress code at their fancy place. I said just wait a few months until its crickets in here every weekend, and you will be begging people in baseball caps to come in and spend money. Looks like I'm getting the last laugh now. maybe i'll stop in with my Indians hat after a game to have some marinara meatballs LOL
No writer has any reason to write what he wrote, the way he wrote it. What was his point??? What "information for the reader" could've been gained? He could've said, "it's not boding well for them." Or something like that. ESPN hates Cleveland, and I believe these reporters want to be invited to the cocktail parties, & rub elbows. So the low hanging fruit is to dog Cleveland... Sorry, but no forgiveness here. He could've said it a hundred other ways. It was plain nasty, in my opinion...
Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this one out; the bicycle group and their leader. It's not enough we have to pass with three feet of bikes, or that we have to have bike lanes at a great cost to the city, but I bet my bottom dollar its the bike group changing speed limit signs.
Dave Chappelle we LOVE you! I've actually met you twice and you are such a lovely Man!
If there was ever a time to throw human or dog shit at someone. This is it.
They'll have some excellent plumbing in there!
He must have become the spokesman for the Mayor's Office.
Well to me, I thought lego batman was a good movie and maybe we should focus on the positive stuff?
