Re: “A Brave Never Tells

I watched a boy vomit, and another get diarrhea from the potion. With no bathroom in sight. Why in world adults are making scouts drink bitter potion is beyond me. Nothing to do with scouting in my book. Hard to believe it is still allowed. This ritual stains a good camp in my view.

Re: “Decoding the Cleveland Prestige Machine

Much of the country thinks of the Midwestern states, except for maybe Chicago, as just "flyover country". I've found lots to like in several of those states, and I firmly believe that Ohio has one of the strongest offerings among them as far as tourism. But without strong promotion, then it's going to be tough to get the word spread. You need people to say good things about you, because it is absolutely true that there's always plenty wrong with any area. And Cleveland and even just Ohio in general have taken a lot of blows to the face over the last 50 years.

Which is why it is such a joke to divert dollars away from tourism promotion to refurbish an arena. We know the Cavs will eventually suck again, but all of our restaurants and breweries and hotels will still be here...and the money and goodwill they generate stays local much more than a winning sports franchise.

It never ceases to amaze me how short-sighted and small-thinking civic leaders are here. That $44 million could help to attract some serious revenue to the city over the years. But instead of investing in marketing the region, they're squandering it on a glass cathedral because the church promised to fund their political career.

Re: “25 New Restaurants, Breweries and Bars We're Looking Forward to This Summer in Cleveland

As a Filipino this all breweries are very new to me. And it seems exciting to taste. But the question is, it is a price friendly?

Re: “Welcome to East Cleveland

Nice story, but does anyone know exactly how East Cleveland went from a city that was controlled 100% by whites to becoming controlled 100% by black in 1969? Read the Cleveland Plain Dealer for the true story. All this happened in one election, and there was one person responsible for the peaceful change in the power structure. Do your homework, study your African American history.
