Re: “Surviving St. Pat's in Cleveland

wah wah wah real Irish beer, real Irish people, wahhhhh. So dumb. Bc almost every person celebrates Christmas, not bc of their religion but because of gifts. I'm gonna have a blast, like every year, and u lamo can suck it bc I'm still probably going to have a better time than your whiney ass because I'm not a grumpy old guy who hates the world and wishes bad on people u don't know. Karma will get u :)

Re: “Good Idea? Bad Idea? Is a Downtown St. Pat's For You?

"... people stay on their feet and stay moving because not one place is FUN. It's all in search of FUN, except we never find it, so you leave every joint with a burst of optimism that the next place will be better, and it never is. You get down there and instantly wish you were back home or at your favorite neighborhood joint."

Best description I've ever read of the down town shenanigans. The crazy green FUN is all an illusion, kids. A few hours of getting wrecked and nauseous and freezing your ass off...and you'll wish you were back home in the neighborhood and sitting in somebody's living room and smoking your favorite joint.

Hell, at least if you're in your favorite neighborhood dive, the shoes you puke on will probably belong to somebody you know and who knows you...and they won't clock you and you won't get busted. Of course, too many stupid kidiots now believe that getting wasted is the only way to have a good time. And that's why I gave up the St. Puketrick's Day shenanigans a long time ago.

Re: “Surviving St. Pat's in Cleveland

St. Puketrick's Day gets more ridiculous every year. Yes...go downtown and be an asswipe and get stupid and freeze your keister off in the lakeside chill. The more people who end up downtown...the fewer there will be in Little Dublin...AKA The Green Mile...AKA Lorain West Park.

Unfortunately, I live between that strip and the Rapid they still have to post the signs that warn the kidiots not to bring their booze onto the trains? This ain't Mardi Gras in New Orleans, children.

They start marching to the train stop in the dawn's early light...already shitfaced. I will be picking up cans and bottles from my yard until after sundown. I would curse out the little Irish bastards--but most of them aren't even Celtic. Just drunken amateurs and wannabees.

March 17 is a good day to avoid Hibernian Nation and's a lot like New Year's Eve...but with more daylight and not quite as cold. It used to be a good time...but the jamokes have ruined it...and there seem to be more asshats every year. Green asshats posing for those stupid drunken selfies. And women trying for that "burned-out skanky slut in green beads and face-paint" look. Erin Go Braghless!

Re: “Surviving St. Pat's in Cleveland

And for those of you who don't "like" my comment I will be comfortably ensconced in my neighborhood Irish pub with actual Irish Americans listening to Irish music, quaffing a few beers and having a really good time. I hope I don't see you there. Please throw up and pass out downtown.

Re: “South Euclid's Housing Manager is One of Many Trying to Fix Our Region's Biggest Problems

According to the National Tax Lien Association: Every year in America $14 billion in property taxes goes unpaid. Twentynine states and the District of Columbia fill this budget shortfall by effectively selling delinquent tax obligations to the private sector.
Fortunately 99.5% of all delinquent taxpayers pay their taxes and avoid tax foreclosure. Counties use these funds to pay for schools, teachers,police and fire services. Tax lien sales are a proven and effective
method to assure government budgets are met and delinquent taxpayers have time to recover.

Re: “Surviving St. Pat's in Cleveland

I find St. Patrick's Day has become a completely ridiculous holiday in which a bunch of people, most of whom don't have one drop of Irish inheritance, use it as an excuse to get black out drunk. As someone who is about 75% Celtic, I find it of no interest at all.

Re: “Couch Patrol

Quite a comical read coming from the "young guy in a van" and its rather funny how this article is written solely from the perspective from the Tankers with no feedback from me / the young guy in a van, Rent A Center, the police, or my attorney. In fact, the majority of this article is filled with completely inaccurate information, such as: The Tankers were not a few weeks behind. They were about 6 months behind, and moved 3 times to evade Rent A Center. I would show up at the door with them on the couch watching the TV they were not paying on as agreed, and he would either completely ignore me or would turn around, laugh and yell or display an obscenity at me. Second, they were not aroused out of bed, Mr. Tanker verbally threatened me showing a handgun out of an upstairs window. The police did find an unloaded weapon underneath a mattress in their bedroom. Also, they did not buy the home they lived in, it was their 3rd rental in a year and we had to use skip trace tactics to locate him because he kept changing locations with furniture he agreed to pay but did not, basically theft, oh and of course Mr. Sheridan does not mention his lengthy criminal history. He was not thrown to the ground in his underwear, he was handcuffed towards the back of a police car wearing sweat pants and a tank top. My manager came to the home and Mr. Tanker begged us not to press charges and told us to just take the stuff which was incredibly damaged and stained. We did not press charges. When Mr. Tanker approached me outside of the Rent A Center store, he was all dressed in black and grabbed me by the arm and forced me in between two buildings to talk. I was extremely afraid of this encounter and would say anything he asked my to avoid getting hurt, I literally feared for my life and subsequently got a restraining order against him for harassing me at my employment which he tried again on three separate occasions - funny how there is no mention of that either. He did sue both Rent A Center and me personally for $25,000. The case was completely thrown out and the Tankers did not get a single dime, and the transcripts from him trying to coerce me into saying I lied - ha, his own attorney did not even want to use it because it was so clearly obvious that he was coercing me, was filled with profanity and he actually recorded a threat he made on me "you really don't want to make me come back here now do you"? Again, no mention of any of that. I quit Rent A Center of this and am not stating I am an advocate for Rent A Center, but what I am saying is how dare you Mr. Sheridan, write a one sided, completely inaccurate story. When this story first came out in 2002, I sent emails, letters, and left voice mails to tell my side of the story and Mr. Sheridan did not respond to one single request for my side.

Re: “Loose Cannon

What the story doesn't say is Rudin and Jopek pulled over Strnad and a friend while driving Tomazic's Honda Pilot 2 weeks before the shooting occurred. While searching the Pilot and the 2 suspects they found a substantial amount of money and drugs on both the individuals - no arrests were made and no report was filed as Rudin and Jopek relieved to two suspects of almost $2500 in cash (while leaving the drugs: cocaine and heroin to the two suspects). The last comment Marty Rudin made as he left the seen was "hope I see you around again soon!" The reason I know this is because I was the other individual in the car with Stanley and both of us had dealings with Officer Rudin for many years.

Re: “Roofie Island: A Summer of Reported Druggings and Rapes on Put-in-Bay, Lake Erie's Party Destination

Would you blame Daytona Beach or Cancun for the few undesirable types that are drawn to that type of party scene? Would you brandish the vacation spot with a name as ignorantly-conceived and unimaginative as roofie-island because a few morally reprehensible individuals chose that as their destination to commit crimes that would be unspeakable in any corner of the world? Bad news for you, this happens everywhere from small towns to big cities and anywhere in between. Again, I have to say, this article is written with no journalistic integrity whatsoever, nor one small modicum of intelligence. Get new journalists and editors. This paper is circling the proverbial toilet.

Re: “The Buckeye Medicaid Boom

Thank you so much for taking the time to write the article Dan. Lori and I extend our gratitude for talking about our last few years of struggle. One thing I wanted to point out is none of my survival was possible without my amazing wife, daughter Ashley , and son in law Chris they are the true warriors.

Re: “The Buckeye Medicaid Boom

We need the public option that exists in all civilized nations, except USA, plus negotiations with drug companies that are impoverishing seniors - EVEN WITH PART D MEDICARE. You have to spend more than $4,000 in drug bills yourself per person, plus another $2,000 per person, just to reach catastrophic coverage.

Check prices for the drugs advertised on tv - for example, Xarelto tm will cost you $5,000 a year, and that's not the most expensive.

Excellent story, Dan. Too bad Vince and his merry band of all-white all-male staff writers aren't capable of this level of quality.

Re: “Enter Utica: The Fracking Industry Really Loves Ohio; Here's What's on Tap for All of Us

Skeptic, we are not dependent at all on Middle Eastern oil. Our oil comes from Canada and South Anerica. The jobs from fracking are out of staters who put in the wells, locals who drive trucks, and a couple of workers on the pads. The idea that this is a great job creator has been debunked at least by one study out of Ohio State.

Your other comments are not worth responding to.
