Re: “That "Tiny House Experiment" in Detroit Shoreway Pretty Much Failed

Well, this may have happened for a few reasons. First, most tiny house buyers (as far as I can tell) want portability and a price point that is far below rent for the area. Clearly, $130,000 is way above that level and probably way above what other homes in the neighborhood sell for.

Second, this area has a surplus of easy-to-renovate stick built homes, which can be purchased and renovated for far less than $100,000, all in. This is not NYC or SF, and it isn't Boston or Philly, where old housing stock is more likely to need oil tank removal, asbestos remediation and other expensive repairs.

I want to see innovative approaches to housing here, but I just don't think this is a winning strategy.

Restaurant owners must have a degree of masochism to deal with the general public.

Re: “Worker-Owned Green City Growers is On the Path to Profits While Giving Refugees and Ex-Cons Gainful Employment

I love the concept behind this initiative and others like Edwin's. Everybody wins... I've bought their lettuce at the market at Public Square and it's beautiful. I'm so glad that Lisy has helped to turn things around, this program is definitely worth saving.

Re: “Fresh and Meaty Burgers Tastefully Fill Void Between Fast Food and Sit-Down

They've only been there since fall? I thought their sign says they have been in operation since the 80's or 90's? Do they have other locations? It's near my house, so I'm not worried. My husband has been dying to try this place!

Re: “Loganberry Books Shelves Men's Books Backwards as a 'Metaphor of Silencing the Male Voice'

"My staff is entirely female here, but we have a lot of books written by women and about women, and we go out of our way to get them," Logan says.

If a store then flipped all books by female authors so you couldn't find them and then said...

"My staff is entirely Male here, but we have a lot of books written by men and about men, and we go out of our way to get them,"

Just how loud would the protest be? Gender discrimination! Etc. If all else fails flip it. Yes it IS sexist because precisely the book store is shoving one sex over the other. Change the Women/men to White male or Black, and yeah it is discrimination. They are supposed to be a book store, neutral place to buy books and not be preached at unless we open a book about that.

After seeing this gimmick, and that's purely what it was, as I don't believe they where intentionally trying to be sexist, all I could think of was if I came in there looking for a specific book, and the author of the book happened to be male... what a pain in the ass to flip the books over to find it. If I knew it would be like that ahead of time, I would go down to the next book store where they aren't beating me over the head with someone's agenda, and I could find what I wanted/needed faster.

While this got their store on the website and noticed, and I live up near there and had never even heard of them so its a toss of a dice to see if that free advertising gimmick gets seen as sexist or pulls in individuals who don't really understand the term and what that they did was very politically incorrect.

Re: “WATCH: Norris Cole, Cedric Jackson and the 2009 CSU Vikings Upset Wake Forest in the NCAA Tournament

Head coach Gary Waters, age 65, retired - unless there is more to the story, he was not pushed out the door. In the "what could have been" category, Waters briefly had the inside track on recruiting Anthony Davis.....until he sprouted from 6'3'' to 6'8'', received national exposure through a Chicago-based AAU team and coaches from schools like Kentucky, Syracuse and Ohio State started lining up outside the locker room. The only real criticism of coach Waters centers on his staff not being able to parlay the Norris Cole and Cedric Jackson (a transfer from St. John's) years into a significant national recruiting footprint. Attendance numbers in the Wolstein Center - outside of about a dozen games against traditional national powers - have been disappointing, though the arena may soon be replaced with a smaller facility. The next head coach must have top-tier experience (Tom Crean, Mark Gottfried, John Groce) and a budget comparable with the highly competitive mid-major programs. Without those key ingredients, the Vikings will again be spinning their wheels with the mediocrity that was Mike Boyd, Rollie Massimino and Mike Garland.

Re: “Our Favorite Dumb Bad Yelp Reviews of Cleveland Restaurants

No, it's more like suburban white trash that couldn't cut it at state college and are still dillsuonal about their place in society, or boomers that are starting to hear the call of the void and impotently lash out to anyone they think is listening because their kids aren't.

Re: “Our Favorite Dumb Bad Yelp Reviews of Cleveland Restaurants

I use and like Yelp. The "industry" thinks people who read Yelp are all knuckle-dragging elitists, but I don't mind reading the reviews. I'm smart enough to see through the bullshit and get a feel for what the place is really like .

Re: “Loganberry Books Shelves Men's Books Backwards as a 'Metaphor of Silencing the Male Voice'

Interesting how it isn't considered petty for the bookstore to parody the silencing of male voices and yet it's somehow petty for someone to point out the blatant hypocrisy of doing so. All I can say... is LOL

Re: “Q Deal Progresses: County Council Grovels Before Cavs, Signals Ultimate Support

Councilman Polensek is one of the few who I totally trust. Why the others continue allowing the sports teams to push then in to corners is beyond me. I personally would not vote for a single cent toward this or any other proposition until the teams legally commit to staying here long term. Otherwise, it's going to be the same dance time after time. As I've said many times, Cleveland does not have the elected public officials of the calibre of the sports pros we are negotiating with. We are basically easy money.

Re: “Khloe Kardashian Gave Tristan Thompson a Very Special Gold Birthday Cake

Talks way too much, just got tired and sleepy listening to him going back and forward on all the stories and seemed like that he was never getting to the point. Would have liked to hear the whole thing but became impossible to listen to all that ...... wish he would cut the story to one third so I could listen to the whole thing... it seemed interesting at first....
