Re: “The Sizzle of South Beach has Been Snuffed Out in Westlake

South Beach or Westlake? Smoking hot Hispanic women or 400-pound Polish lesbians? Hmmm...tough decision.

Re: “Trevor Bauer Flipped Out on Twitter Again, Defending Donald Trump and Denying Humans' Role in Climate Change

Uh...Brian Wilson. He's now toast? Is that really what you said? Right now, Curt Schilling is the leading candidate to run against Senator Elizabeth Warren when she runs for re-election next year.

Trevor Bauer needs to spend more time figuring out how to finally reduce that perpetually bloated ERA of his, and needs to spend less time figuring out why Northeast Ohio had a record high temperature in the low 60s this past Tuesday. It's sure not being caused by the heat from his pitches resulting in 209 walks and 59 home runs in the past three seasons.

Re: “Public Square: The Heart of Darkness

I'm not sure about all these analogies and metaphors, but can we at least all agree, as representatives of a species of intelligent warm-blooded mammals, that Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson is outrageously and utterly full of shit?

Apparently, Joe Marinucci's hot air also blows large heavy metallic boxes.

Maybe DCA is looking into use of Scene boxes as alternative housing for the homeless?

Re: “Downtown Cleveland Alliance Stole All the Missing Scene Boxes, Citing Safety Concerns

This morning at 11:30, I was biking down Herman Avenue (just east of W. 65th) when I passed a yellow DCA pickup headed westbound with several Scene boxes in the back. Don't know what they were doing in this neck of the woods.

Re: “Cleveland Welcomes Dozens of New U.S. Citizens in Naturalization Ceremony

My grandfather Albert Joseph Bialek came to the United States from Poland {Galicia} in 1910. Per the Ellis Island website he boarded the ship Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse in Bremen, Germany {formerly Prussia}. He had just completed his service in the Austrian Army. Poland at that time was divided into three spheres of influence by Austria, Prussia and Russia. Upon being
discharged he returned to his fathers farm. Officers from the Austrian Army made an attempt to reenlist him but tradition dictated that he could remain at home so long as he was sorely needed on the farm. Immediately after the officers departed Alberts father gave him his brothers travel documents and instructed him to immigrate to the United States. His father
knew that war was coming and he didnt want to lose his son to it. It took me longer to locate my grandfather on the passenger list because I had forgotten he was traveling under the name Jan and not Albert. Upon arriving at Ellis Island Albert was directed to meet with an Inspector who proceeded to ask him a series of questions. Looking at Alberts papers the Inspector pronounced his last name {phonetically} as BIE-AA-LE-K to which Albert earnestly objected by stating his last name as BEE-AA-W-E-K. In Polish the L is pronounced as a W. After several go rounds with Albert over the correct pronunciation of his last name the frustrated Inspector
finally demanded that the name be pronounced BIE-AA-LE-K {or youre getting back on that boat that brought you here} to which Albert fully complied with the new pronunciation of his last name. Given the fact that Albert entered the United States under the name Jan Bialek and later burned his immigration papers it is evident he was by definition a illegal immigrant. He went on to become a very hard-working brick mason and law-abiding citizen raising 12 children with the help of his Polish wife Mary {nee Mazan} and the rest {as they say} is history.
Just as Cleveland {Ohio} is a city of neighborhoods so is the United States a country of immigrants. In fact all the major cities of America {at one time} served as incubators for immigrants to not only become accustomed to the ways of this country but also to intermingle with each other {often prohibited in their native homeland}. It's a shame that the inner cities were handed over
to the absentee landlords following World War ll. Just imagine how much stronger and united our country might have been had this unofficial tradition continued. Gentrification is not the answer. Preventing immigration is notthe solution. Intense vetting is acceptable during these challenging times but to unfairly deny one person access to the United States makes us all orphans again. As a popular song goes: "let me in immigration man.

Re: “Contest Announcement: Design a New Name/Logo For the Cleveland Baseball Team

Confining an entire race of people within the context of what constitutes a team mascot is not only wrong, but is not American. Why not consult the leaders of whats left of the tribal nations to vote.

I'm glad you found the culprit and this will be made right. Scene is one of the iconic Cleveland publications that I try always to get a copy of when I'm in town.

I'm glad the DCA is concerned about my safety. I might trip over some criticism while walking downtown.

Chuckles the Clown: "Nobody gives a good goddam" but:

"He needs to STFU and keep quiet when he's not between the white lines, or he will end up becoming another Curt Schilling, a survivalist wingnut who was to MLB what Ted Nugent was to music.

Curt eventually went over the edge and got booted off TV sports reporting...and is now toast.

Stick to pitching, kid, and kwitcherbitchin. Nobody gives a good goddam what moron you voted for or how much ass-kissing you're doing to the backside of Agent Orange."
