if the bank can take over your house then you should take over one of the execs houses or all of them...with all their priceless and non-replaceable belongings, when they ask what you are doing say" my GPS told me this is my new house, sorry. gotta trust the electronics, they never lie!!!"
I hope this case finds it's way on up to the Supreme Court. I hope someone sets up a "relief fund" for this lady so she can fight this. OH, and AGAIN, HERE in TEXAS!
Amazing why ALL these stories are showing up out of Texas. This is happening in EVERY Red State, trust me!
Then kick him in the cojones for general principles.
Fuck all of you who criticize him without knowing him. Dan is living life on his own terms and will go out on his own terms as well. If your friends and family choose to go out a different way, nobody should judge them. That's just their way. If you want to continue to criticize Dan's way, I will make it a point to find you and your loved ones and make a Westboro Baptist Church style spectacle of their funeral.
Terry Pluto was co-author of "You Could Argue But You'd Be Wrong" (1988) with Pete Franklin -- which is still a neat read for those who remember "Uncle Petey" and what was the birth of sports talk radio.
Really sickened by the personal attacks on Mr.Nosse in this comment thread. It's perfectly fine to disagree with someone - by all means, encourage dialogue and debate. However, to call someone a "Hipster Snob", a "knob", or to suggest they've spent "too many hours on a bike seat" (what ever the ever loving f*** THAT is supposed to mean) is childish and speaks poorly of one's OWN character. But that's just my opinion. By all means disagree.
I predict that you will continue to tell everyone of your story and annoy them with the details until they agree with you and when you turn your back, they will call you an idiot. I think he's more like the next Jordan or Magic how would you prove he's the next Dr. J? Define "high flyer" doesn't 1/2 of the NBA players fall into this. You should take TWO more polygraphs. Do the right thing DCE, and quit being an idiot.
There's another story about an athlete that i would like to share. Back on February 14, 2010 Vince Grzegorek posted an email i sent him under the title "The Secret to LeBron's Greatness Landed in my Inbox. My original email was entitled "LeBron the Christened One". Please find and read that article and its comments. Gloria and LeBron James owe me and five of my former basketball team mates 6 Million Dollars per a handshake agreement that Gloria and i made. Three month old LeBron was raised in the air three separate time and Christened to be the next Dr. J (NBA Legend Julius Erving). I predicted that LeBron would be an NBA star, would play for the Cavs and would be a high flying player like Dr. J. Gloria and i made a handshake agreement that when LeBron became an NBA star as i predicted she would see to it that each of the six men who participated in LeBrons' Dr. J Christening would be made millionaires.
We are here to collect. Click on the four video links at Rolando Pharr on Twitter. I've taken and passed THREE polygraphs. Those results are there also. If someone would ask Gloria James if she remembers these events, i'm positive she will say yes. She has no reason to lie. Their family has been blessed. Everything i predicted for LeBron came true. He played for the Cavs, he's a high flyer like Dr. J and most importantly he's an NBA star. LeBron becoming an NBA star was the 6 Million Dollar Handshake Agreement. Do the right thing Gloria and LeBron James. The Universe is watching.
Take Thorne's house and give it to Katie.
Gee...I wonder why these thuggy little bastards aren't stupid enough to try to flash mob Murray Hill?
Go west, little children. Come to the Hooley next May, go home as shepherd's pie.

I've owned 2 properties in Ohio City for almost 2 decades and I love what is being done and what will be done. This is your average hipster that likely talks about his vinyl collection to the small group of customers who wish they had not visited his lackluster overpriced store. Most of the design and conceptual framework being discussed has been laid out by the same group who assisted with the E.4th planning—which to my knowledge is doing quite well. No one is suggesting building rows of ranch homes with cedar shingles you knob. The overarching scheme from what I have been told from business owners in the area is to connect Tremont, Ohio City and the Detroit Shoreway…what a bummer. Sterile?!?! Too many hours on a bike seat possibly.
And you thought social media was always going to be a GOOD thing for us.
alex sounds like someone that doesn't want to see the neighborhood change from what it was. look, if the neighborhood was doing super awesome or something, then it would be bad to change it. but it wasn't. all the people that had lived there basically watched their neighborhood go into decline and become an undesirable area to live, so many people started moving away. now, new businesses come in, young people move in, and the neighborhood is on a huge upswing. but this is a bad thing? without all the development on the w25th and lorain area, it would have continued its decline and become the next maple heights, with everyone rushing to move out of the city before you got trapped in it
How about Shaker Heights? They've cancelled their Fourth of July fireworks, something they've done for decades, over problems with unruly mobs of young people. Everyone seems to have conveniently forgotten this. It's probably the same kids. The irony is that by their behavior, these kids have caused the cancellation of two events that they seem to enjoy - or why would they show up? No doubt though, they are too stupid to figure this out. As they ruin more and more events they will be cancelled and they'll no doubt whine, "There's nothing to dooooooo!"
Put a bird on it.
Cleveland Heights has bent over and surrendered to fear and the taxpaying, law abiding citizens suffer. The art fest should have proceeded with a strong police presence. This would have deterred any teenage punks from causing problems. The teenage thugs win and are emboldened by the lack of trust in the cities police department in handling situations like this. You can tell by the comments from the South Euclid chief that he was trying to be politically correct and not say anything too negative about Cleveland Heights decision. Thugs 1 C.H. 0
Growing up in a place doesn't make your opinion more valid. Having a family history in one place doesn't automatically mean you can't be poorly reasoned.
It seems hypocritical to decry a lack of mixed income housing when you run a shop selling $800 bicycles.
Thoughtful article. Alex isn't a snob. He is a critical thinker and asking questions that need to be asked. Right on. This interview resonates with a lot if residents in the neighborhood.
"Drug dealers and hookers" have not been seen in Ohio City north of Lorain in quit some time my friend. Unless you are talking about the 2-8 projects; but no one from Ohio City considers that the OC.
Wow, what a snob. The City Planning Commission of Cleveland showed the demographic breakdown in Ohio City in 2010 (among the three highest groups) to be 41 percent white, 32 percent black and 22 percent Hispanic. The ages and income levels are just as wide-ranging. There is an incredible mix of small businesses, owned by local business owners. Not to mention the West Side Market, where you can hear a number of different languages whenever you walk through. And that's sterile? Alex, you sound like a hipster snob. I agree completely with Camilo's comment above--you can't criticize young white people for living in the suburbs and then also criticize them for living in the city.
