Re: “More Northeast Ohio Teens Arrested or Sought for Making Clown Related-Threats

That actually happened to me in the Eighties. It was in downtown Chicago...the mime began following me and mimicking the way I walk. Showing off for passers-by and trying to get a few chuckles )excuse the pun) from my wife and my aging parents.

Had they not been with me, I would have almost certainly knocked the living shit out of him, right there in Grant Park. I wonder if he'd have made gagging and retching noises after I kicked him in the nuts? Who's laughing now, pal?

As for those young punks, you can't have Twitter without the Twit.

Re: “Brian Wilson's Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary World Tour Coming to Hard Rock Live

For those who may need a little prep, Brian Wilson's pair of live albums -- "Live at the Roxy Theatre" (2000) and "Brian Wilson Presents Pet Sounds Live" (2002) -- are absolutely perfect.

Re: “Dumb Ranking Says Cleveland Among Saddest Cities in U.S.

These rankings are what's sad, and what's dumb, not Cleveland. Click bait. Bullshit. Meaningless rankings that various folks pull out of their asses for various reasons. Or for no reason at all, except that they can.

Saddest cities. Happiest cities. Nicest states. Meanest states. Best quality of life. Worst places to retire.

And it's always quantitative as well as qualitative, which is even dumberer and sadderer...

Twenty worst beaches for feces and needles. Thirty coolest restaurants that cost you your whole paycheck. Ten shittiest cars. Twelve counties where residents own the most pets. Who hates kitties the most. What place is the snarkiest. What dogs are the barkiest.

When folks run this kind of crap, they are out of ideas and being really lame, and doing the same shit over and over again. OHIO magazine is among them. So is CLEVELAND Magazine. For chrissakes, SCENE, don't join them! Especially when they include Cleveland or Ohio. PLEEEEEEZE?

I know I have done this same rant in the past, only shorter. You can look them up and rank them to see which one is the bitchiest..

Re: “Dumb Ranking Says Cleveland Among Saddest Cities in U.S.

Exactly. The website is completely irrelevant. It's just a list of cities in the midwest for the most part. Who cares.

Re: “Cleveland's Arts and Cultural Community has Helped Cleveland Shine. It's Time Cleveland Did More

Amen! Preach! I get tired of everything in these big projects always being designed by some company from New York, Chicago, or Europe. Cleveland doesn't need to be like New York or Seattle or Chicago—we need to be like ourselves and stop trying to be anything but that! Local talent isn't just about people who live here, it's about keeping our dollars in town, allowing artists to build their businesses and brands so we can at least sustain our city and the people who love it. If we do this, just maybe we can export Cleveland talent to other places instead of running this trade deficit.

Re: “Confessions of a Rust Belt Orphan (Or 'How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Akron')

Didn't somebody else write something along these same lines, only as a book, maybe 5-10 years ago? I believe it was even called "Rust Belt Chic"...I own it...but I'm too lazy to go and look for it.

This is old news...from maybe 15-20 years ago. This area is slowly getting both better and worse at the same time. You just have to know where and where not to go. I don't think I have to spell that out for you.

If you feel that Akron really sucks so badly, you could always move up to Lakewood...or even Cleveland. Both are on the upswing. Bring your snow shovel.

Re: “TBS Used a Moscow River Fire to Depict Cleveland Last Night

Papi was the story to get them ratings. They don't believe Cleveland will get the audience to generate revenue. Whether it's true, doesn't matter. They wanted the "Big Papi".

Re: “Bond Reduced for Joshua Gaspar, Man Who Hit and Killed Ohio State Highway Patrolman Kenneth Velez

You may want to check the court docket-some of your information regarding this case needs to be clarified. It shows in court paperwork that "Ohio State Patrol Troopers performing initial accident reconstruction testing that Defendent Gaspa's speed estimate is sixty-eight miles per hour using the video and physical evidence at the scene" Not the 78 miles per hour that they were initially reporting

The whole incident is tragic for both families. But, please, if you are going to report, do your research-get your facts, and report ALL information. This case has been very misleading from the very beginning.

Re: “Confessions of a Rust Belt Orphan (Or 'How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Akron')

Interesting thoughts but already passe, the region has moved past this dreck, and your thoughts are better served in the late 1990's ... Here's what... We live in one of the best geographical regions of Ohio, heck, even the nation... with a national park in the middle of it... World class architecture, museums, restaurants, orchestra and play houses.. OH WAIT THERE'S A GREAT LAKE TOO, cost of living is nothing, and the quality of the housing stock rivals the East Coast ... So please, stop the moaning and whining .. the ONLY thing holding us back are idiots that want some blue collar bull---- past back ... A past, by the way, that was full of bad decissions, golden generation suburban exidus and Me generation laziness... Please spare me... Some, maybe even many Xer's bought the negative hype, but it was lies sold to us by ignorant parents... but its over man... Because none of it is true, because as soon as you open your eyes you see how amazing NEO actually is.... Burned so badly ?... get a life. This isn't Detroit ... Sigh no more ladies, sigh no more... W. Shakespeare
