I am so tired of these fucking cowards. If you hate someone that much then have the courage to come out in public and fight them, but you people who call in bomb threats are nothing but loathsome, revolting, sniveling little cowards.
Patti Smith is totally amazing. I adore her. I'm so glad I was at the concert last night. All I want to do now is listen to Horses.
O/U on a place like Ruth's Chris is at least 10 years. It may be a chain, but it's not Applebee's. It's a 4-5 star restaurant. Don't get me wrong, XO and (especially) Red are great, but so is Ruth's Chris. It's prime location right off the revitalized square will provide major foot traffic with lower saturation than, say, E. 4th. It will do very well.
She kicked ass! I'm so glad I was there.
Couldn't this same article be essentially written about every company that does business in Ohio? I mean, I could take those exact same maps, cross "AT&T" out of the title and put in anyone. Go ahead, you try it. "TGI Friday's" "Best Buy", whatever. You invest where your customers are at and where they are going. Is the next article going to be about residents of South Russell being discriminated against in the same-day loan market? Probably not, because Pay Day Advance doesn't think there's a market for their 34% loans. Not only is it more expensive for AT&T (and others) to build out hard-line infrastructure in these red neighborhoods, we're talking about places where the city's are getting federal money to TEAR DOWN HOUSES! It's certainly not a race issue. I guess it's a poverty issue, but only in the fact that the company doesn't see a market for premium broadband services in poverty-striken neighborhoods. And just because they were blackmailed into offering some $5/month deal doesn't mean they're going to be excited about spending billions to build it out. Get a 4G hotspot. Yes you pay for data, but you're on-par with the price of wired services in the 'burbs.
The opinion expressed above is one I think I'd apply generally to just about every private company. Specific to AT&T: they are one of the shittiest companies I've ever dealt with, and they can disappear any time and we'd all be better off. Incompetent support, incompetent techs, and just a general disorganization on a massive, corporate-wide scale. Just awful in so many ways.
The Browns went Trader Lane.
It has been four difficult years to fight through a disinterested Cleveland City Hall that did all it could to ignore and derail the New Eastside Market project. When I started the effort in 2013 to bring back to Glenville, and other nearby neighborhoods, a full service grocery store, I was disappointed with the lack of enthusiasm from city leaders that was different than how they react to downtown projects.
With the involvement of Councilmen Kevin Conwell and Mike Polensek, beginning in 2014, we united to get the project funded by the state government and private financing.
Why is it so hard to do development in neighborhoods not located downtown? It is unfair and misguided to have double standards in the use of our public investment funds.
Congratulations to NEON, and its team, who kept the faith while working with us as we moved the project through City Hall. It is because of this local public-private partnership that the New Eastside Market development has begun and continues on schedule for a fall opening. -- Jeff Johnson, Councilman
George Forbes will be remembered as arguably the most polarizing and powerful Cleveland city council president in history. But one thing is certain -- AT&T would not have been permitted to build a digital redlining wall under his watch.
SamImAlways - The great thing is that assumption is being made by Scene.
MUK - Since when you liberals care about following laws (immigration)?
If someone can prove they broke a law, go for it. Otherwise, it's business as usual.
All of you have no idea what your talking about so long there good service people will pay for it especially internet because this is because the companies are greedy and find excuse not to up grade the existing system main city have the same problem I support samimalways
Listening to this guy for more than 45 seconds would make anyone get uncomfortable.
The owner will get sick an die.... I'm not trying to be funny or scare nobody but I had this vision she won't live to see 2020 the house doesn't want nobody there it wants to be left alone
Doesn't take much to bring out the real in people. I like the assumption that these neighborhoods are full of thieves and bill dodgers. There is a diverse mix of low income blue collar and middle income white collar who happen to believe that where we live is worth the investment. We deserve quality Internet at affordable prices. A**hats.
Why should any company invest money in the heart of the ghetto knowing that they will never get paid for their product. I think they're lucky AT&T offers any service. If it were up to me they should pull out of the hood.
Come to the near west side. Please. Doesn't the east side have enough delis? We need one here.
So a business only sets up shop in a place where it can make money, wow who'd have thought it.
Dan Gilbert can roll out his roster of sycophants.....but he needs to come out of hiding and answer the tough and legitimate questions -- if he wants to feast at the public trough during a party that will never end.
Sure. Invest billion where no one can pay for the service.
