Re: “The Cleveland Bucket List

One thing you should add is to attend the Greater Cleveland Peace Officer Memorial Tattoo concert in May. Its one of the best in the country! Besides, who doesn't like bagpipes?

Re: “Free Base: A Neighborhood Reacts after Violence Interrupts West Denison Little League's Summer Games

The boogeymen keep moving west. Today West 107th...West 150th tomorrow? The Irish will not run from their Green Mile. And the first responders who still live here will respond first...with armed response.

Come to Kamm's Corners little thuggies and druggies, and you'll go home as shepherd's pie. Or in a box. Not a threat...a promise.

DO SOMETHING! This place was a gem in the 60s. We would play baseball at Brookside in the mornings and at Thrush in the West Denison league in the evenings. Greatest childhood ever. Now, it's all gone? How? Why? DO SOMETHING!

This probably won't be seen , Blacks ruined that area . Look at the crime stats and who the perpetrators are . Raise rents in those areas and see how fast crime drops ' Ohio city is a prime example as is the Tremont area.

Re: “Free Base: A Neighborhood Reacts after Violence Interrupts West Denison Little League's Summer Games

Just another Councilperson that's not doing their job. When will citizens wake up and stop voting these people in office time and time again? The city is rampant with crime, shootings, and murders and what's being done???? Things are going to change people unless you vote the same old, same old out of office.

remind me, how many mini-mansions and scupltured gardens will be torn down/paved over for this..."opportunity"?

Re: “Bigger than Basketball: The Transformative Power of LeBron James

I suppose I am glad James is a Cav again...but the hoop-la and the fawning were embarrassing and ridiculously kiss-ass.

And what will people do if there's no instant title in a year or two? Will they burn their jerseys again and throw rocks again...at his image on a building?

Will there even BE an image to throw rocks at this time around? Damn betcha there will! It felt like the Second Coming last week. If Christ came to Cleveland, he would be wearing a wine-and-gold NBA jersey.

I'd love to see LBJ (no, not the ghost of that OTHER LBJ) mobilize his disciples to get out the vote...by any means necessary...and blow the Rethugs out of the water in this state. Is he even remotely motivated to do such a thing? Is he a political animal at all?

LBJ could change a lot of things in Ohio if he were so inclined. Bigger than basketball, indeed. One can only hope.

Re: “Bigger than Basketball: The Transformative Power of LeBron James

I've read this story three times and I still can't figure out what Peter Pattakos is trying to say. The first half of the article is strong, but then the second half turns passive without bringing home the author's point.

Re: “The Art of the Autopsy: Photographer Seph Lawless Spends his Days Documenting Decaying Ruins

Seph Lawless is a well-known fraud who has only been doing exploring for under two years. He claims to have been arrested over 50 times, but Ohio court systems show no record of this.

Re: “Savagely Yours: A Chat with the Guy You've Read in the Back of Scene for Years

That's too bad...you really missed something special. My wife and I gave up a beautiful afternoon at the Larchmere Porchfest so we could go downtown and see him.

Really glad we made that decision. There's a Porchfest every summer, but there's only one Dan Savage.

Re: “Big Opportunities: The Opportunity Corridor's New Director Discusses Project Goals and Controversy

Gee, folks like me will be soon be able to get to CIA, CMA, and WOW (Wade Oval Wednesday) ten minutes faster from the West Side...and still spend an hour looking for a goddam place to park.

But I got wise...and finally figured out the solution to that problem...get to ANY University Circle event two hours before the announced start time.

The early bird gets the space, and the seats that the rich old East Side art-farts try to hold for all their rich old East Side art-fart friends. That's why so many folks hate Canadians.

Re: “King of the Silver Ball: All about Nudging, Tilting and High Scores at the Happy Dog Pinball League

Nudging? Isn't that a Jewish thing? Where you whine a lot and pester somebody else?

Oh, wait...different spelling...
And it's pronounced like it's spelled..."noodging"...

Never mind!

Re: “Big Opportunities: The Opportunity Corridor's New Director Discusses Project Goals and Controversy

It might not fully be a "highway" but you'd be a liar if you said it was anything less than a "major boulevard". If they do it right it can work but that means putting as much emphasis on bikes/peds/transit as they do on cars. I'm talking wide sidewalks, a two way cycletrack, trees, permeable pavement, street furniture, gardens, art, etc.

But if they go cheap on all that stuff and make this all about cars, it will absolutely destroy everything around it.

Re: “Star Trek's Cleveland Roots: Roddenberry at the Cleveland ConCoction

Not entirely accurate. ConCoction is CLEVELAND's first real convention for the general geek crowd in many years, but the N.E. Geek Expo has been running in the Ashtabula area for 3 years now.

Can't help myself. Only in Cleveland do we call tearing down half the homes within walking distance of a rapid station (east 55th) and replacing it with a highway cloverleaf "transit oriented development." Ye-esh.
