Re: “FirstEnergy Will Sell or Close Both Ohio Nuclear Power Plants

CLOSE THEM DOWN - seriously, i dont think theres any group of people I'd feel confident to run these things. I have a very low opinion of human intelligence anymore.

Re: “Heated Deliberations Begin for the Q Renovation Plan

The Cavs get what they want, especially when Gilbert and the powers that be throw their weight around. Casinos? Check. Sin Tax Renewal? Check. Q Renovation? (coincidentally all advertised extensively in the Q during Cavs games. And I mean extensively advertised. All over the place. Hmmm...)

There's too many people that are too scared to stand up to the big wigs and will just vote yes because they're getting bullied and they don't want to respond to that. So what should we do? Call their bluff. Gilbert enjoys his reputation as the golden boy and wants to seem like he's saving the world while he buys up everything in Cleveland and Detroit. Does he really intend to move the Cavs out of the market that quickly after winning a championship? If LeBron was looked at unfavorably when he left, how would Gilbert and the Cavs look publicly after that? Gilbert would be a fool to move, and he and everyone else knows it. Any threat to leave is just a threat. But please try to convince me that this Cleveland Renaissance that all of us have been working on for so many years with our dollars and Cleveland pride is just the work of the Cavs, and it's all going to fall apart if they leave.

But don't worry, everyone in charge is so buddy buddy with the Cavs and the rich people that this thing will get jammed down our throats. At least we can fight and make them work for it. And Kudos to Scene for not just falling in line and actually digging into this. It's not like we can count on the hollow husk that was once the PD for anything on this one.

Re: “Kevin Young, Suspect Acquitted in 1990 Murder of Lisa Pruett, Has Died

Hey Stan, read the story citing post trial interviews with the jury before opening your pie hole. They clearly thought he was guilty but couldn't convince everyone beyond a reasonable doubt. They didn't think he was innocent.

Re: “Heated Deliberations Begin for the Q Renovation Plan

Great job Sam.
We see the same lying forces in this deal as. He. Brown s. With bond counsel nuance picking up the fees.
No one mentions the county still owes tens ok millions on the antenna fro the 1990s..
One expected the bought out pee Dee to sell out but Brady has stained his record forever. Shameful.

Re: “An Excerpt From: 'You're Welcome, Cleveland; How I Helped LeBron James Win a Championship and Save a City'

Shoulda either run this overlong diatribe next fall, on Yum Kippers, or eschewed this chapter entirely...for one on LeBron...or on Cleveland...or sports, period.

And please, spare me the slef-hating Jew replies, folks...as One of The Tribe (the ORIGINAL Tribe), I hate the Slefs, too. Never forgive, never forget, and the awful memories of the 1915 Slefian Massacre will never die.

So I click the clickbait to read about sports or basketball or Cleveland's now-dead curse, and what do I get? Jewish wine. Kosher, yet. Or maybe this was a last-minute entry because of the recent JCC threats and Agent Orange's shrugs regarding the rising activities of the Jew-haters? Ya think?

Nu, if that was your real reason for shilling for this putz, then mazeltov, you shaygetz boychiks...your hearts are in the right place after all.

Oy, vey...so this nudnik's not such a bad writer, but in this case, Sam, you made the rants too long.

Re: “Kevin Young, Suspect Acquitted in 1990 Murder of Lisa Pruett, Has Died

This article is what we have now been calling "alternative facts", aka lies. The only truth in the article is that Kevin Young has apparently died. News that will allow many to sleep better at night. May Lisa's memory be a blessing to us all and may she rest in peace. This publication should be ashamed of itself. Even if Kevin wasn't convicted, to run such a slanted story is inexcusable.

James Renner once again dragging names of acquitted and innocent people into the mud.
It isn't bad enough you have to discredit innocent people and ruin their lives when they're alive.
What the hell kind of news article is this? You are a miserable person James Renner.

Re: “Heated Deliberations Begin for the Q Renovation Plan

Remember the union construction work and permanent jobs created through the Phase II casino project? Oh -- that's right -- Dan Gilbert lied about that one. And Fred Nance needs to quit lying about the "bridge to nowhere" negotiations the city conducted with Art Modell.

Re: “Kevin Young, Suspect Acquitted in 1990 Murder of Lisa Pruett, Has Died

Just because police charged him with a crime doesn't mean he actually committed a crime. That decision is made by a jury and they decided Kevin Young was innocent. The jury had far more information about the case than you two bozos.

How unfortunate that the writer chose to frame the story in such a slanted manner, and the editors allowed it. The piece omits evidence pointing away from Dreifort, evidence available to the prosecutors when they decided whom to charge. Shame on Scene.

Re: “Ukrainian Genocide Film Better Suited for History Channel

Historian Vadim Z. Rogovin's "1937: Stalin's Year of Terror" and "Stalin's Terror of 1937-1938: Political Genocide in the USSR" are chillingly outstanding books chronicling the cunning madman.

I hope he left a note that will debunk all your conspiracy theory crap that has caused people so much pain. Lisa's murderer is dead. Drinks on me.

Re: “A Dated Menu and Uneven Execution Hamper Merchant Street Eatery's Hopes of Lasting

This is a shame to hear, the owner couldn't possibly be any nicer. I live in Tremont and the connected market has become my go-to for wine and quick sandwiches. They use fresh, unique ingredients and the sandwiches rotate often. I go at least once a week! Hoping this is just some growing pains at the restaurant!
