For fucks sake, it's not the fault of La Mega or the Hispanic community in Cleveland that The Sound is getting shut down. It's the fault of the Sound's management/ownership who wanted to sell it.
just run it over with a dump truck, then take the hard drive with you!
People will sue over anything. Guaranteed he went to the hospital so he could make a lawsuit. Embarassing.
for $400,000? The jackass attorney that filed that suit should be disbarred
I'm surprised more of them haven't had the camera lens spray painted.
Where has there ever been "blood in the streets" or "gunfights over fender-benders" that we keep getting warned about? The only change I have ever been able to find in any city or state that loosened restrictions on the Second amendment is a lower violent crime rate, usually drastically lower.
It is only logical that criminals prefer unarmed victims (why else do almost all mass shootings take place in "gun-free zones") and it follows that if their prey can fight back they are less likely to attack someone.
It doesn't have to be everyone carrying for everyone to benefit either. With concealed carry the criminals won't know if their chosen prey has teeth or not. With open carry, they are likely to see a firearm and decide to try a softer target.
The Jawa's will take care of it...Let's get out of here before the Tusken Raider arrives
Tractor accidents used to be very common. They have a center of gravity that is like a wad of gum on a toothpick.
"Childish-sounding?" Perhaps, as a journalist, you might want to make your copy more "English-sounding." Can someone explain WHY putting the Second Amendment on the same lawful footing as every other Amendment could possibly be construed as "childish"? (or "childish-sounding"?). If you're going to spin something, do what every other liberal police-state suck-up does: lie. Cite irrelevant or misleading statistics. Invoke a statistically insignificant tragedy. Make fun of the Founding Fathers or imply that their "racism" invalidates the legal standing of the US Constitution. Don't just make a half-hearted, petulant swipe at the essential liberty of your neighbors and fellow countrymen. That only makes you look - childish.
Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Thin Lizzy & UFO should be the next 5 bands to be inducted.
Without them there's a HUGE lack of Hard Rock in that Hall of Fame.
We need more responsible (most citizens) adults out there keeping their neighborhoods safe with guns. Government police clearly can't handle the job, especially when they're out there with a primary motive to make money for it's corporation (police department) and not keeping people safe.
This may be the first and last time in Scene's history that we'll append a story with the tag "Ohio Manure Deaths."
Is this a joke to you Sam? Someone died.
The true racists are those who immediately equate "not wanting to hear Spanish instead of cool music" with "hating Latinos." I'm not a fan of country music, so I wouldn't care if one of those stations changed to "Latin sound" (whatever that is) but I would expect that country music fans would be upset. Are they automatically racists? Of course not. Are some of them racists? Possibly, but that's not the point. If somebody wants to start a new station for Spanish listeners, go for it, but don't shut down a good station in the process. It seems awfully racist to assume that Spanish-speaking people will only listen to Spanish-language stations. How patronizing.
With the exception of 87.7, the radio landscape in Cleveland is terrible: A few stations playing the same old classic rock/oldies over and over, and a few stations playing the same pop garbage on repeat. Which stations will play Florence & The Machine? MGMT? Fitz & The Tantrums? Cage The Elephant? Awolnation? The Black Keys? (And don't say WMMS, because Rover/Alan are talking for half the daytime.) Back to Pandora, I guess.
So excited for this! No other casino in Ohio has what the rocksino does. The production director and entire hard rock staff is changing the whole landscape and energy of northeast Ohio. They know exactly what they are doing and they do it kick ass. I'm excited that they also heavily support the local music scene and have already had and are booking some great gigs to play at the hard rock cafe stage. This should be fantastic. Cleveland and Northfield Ohio need this energy!
Bigots like Stansbury and the simpletons you see in above comments making anti-Hispanic remarks are why many of us stopped listening or supporting this failed ego trip. They wasted many thousands on their ignorance.
No Deep Purple, no Jethro Tull, no Moody Blues, no J. Geils, no Charlie Daniels, no Marshall Tucker........... the so called "Rock Hall" continues its track record of irrelevance.
Down The Rabbit Hole in Athens, Ohio in the early seventies used to sell whippets, nitrus oxcide (hits) by the thousands. If Ohio would just legalize the real stuff no one would have to get a THC buzz illegally. De-criminalized is a good step.....but come on....we need to get with the program.....pirateofcleveland.org
Cleveland really is a wonderful, big and old industrial city on the Great Lakes and with salt of the earth people.
*YAWN*...Except Peter Gabriel and Linda Rondstadt...
