Re: “If Cleveland Had a Bigger, Better Metro Railway, This is What it Might Look Like

I used to live in an area (D.C.) which had superb public transportation. I've seen the transformative effects of excellent subway, light rail, and bus transit for poor and working-class people, as well as for upper-class and wealthy individuals.

Cuyahoga County is suffering from "sprawl withdrawal". Every Tom, Dick, and Harry got to incorporate their own little community, spreading out ever-further -- and promising wealthier individuals that they'd never have to see "those people" and deal with "those people's problems" if they'd just move out further. Now the area is so car-addicted, density throughout the area is so low that retail cannot survive, and everything is so built up, that it would take leadership that this area hasn't seen since Tom Johnson 100 years ago to make something like this come true.

But oh -- if it could happen! The benefits to the city and county would be STUNNING. Millennials would flock here. The urban renewal would be eye-popping.

Re: “If Cleveland Had a Bigger, Better Metro Railway, This is What it Might Look Like

I agree it would be amazing. But, just like Atlantis it's imaginary. The citizens of this city are too busy lapping up the spoils of gentrification, taking part in constructing the gentrification or fleeing the effects of gentrification. The racial divide established long ago and upheld consciously and/or unconsciously by those with the power and privilege also contribute to the worsening of effect. But I do agree it's most definitely something that could prove very effective in assisting the spread of commerce and mobility throughout the area.

Re: “Jeff Johnson Vows to be Mayor of the People

I'd rather vote for someone who's open and honest about a 20 year old mistake than someone who's giving money over to billionaires from City Hall on a regular basis!

McDonald's was to the locally owned and operated diner what Walmart became to locally owned and operated stores.

Re: “Video: Another Cuyahoga County Jail Officer Talks About Safety Problems in Facility, Fear of Jail Leadership

How do these people get away with this. Props to the guards, but that's crazy.

Re: “Video: Another Cuyahoga County Jail Officer Talks About Safety Problems in Facility, Fear of Jail Leadership

Corruption at its finest as always. The new county charter has money to give to Dan Gilbert, for a one billion dollar hospital. But can't fix doors in a jail. How are we being protected? And I've looked into this a little.
The main guy wasn't even a jail guard at no time in his career, he was a coast guard captain? Before he was a director of the jail he was in another high county position. How much longer does county tax payers have to deal with this? Again corruption at its finest.

Re: “Cleveland March Planned in Solidarity with Women's March on Washington

Dondrea, would you be so kind as to inform me how and where I can pick up my decades of back pay from the DNC? I never got the memo. How do I collect my moolah and whom do I see?

Are your eyes brown? They must be, as you are full of shit up to your eyeballs. You are drowning in it.

Re: “Video: Another Cuyahoga County Jail Officer Talks About Safety Problems in Facility, Fear of Jail Leadership

I really despised working there. The overcrowding has been going on for years!! I remember working the old side (9th/10th floors), pod full and up to 15-20 inmates sleeping on the floor...unreal and extremely unsafe! That's just the start of it..

Re: “A Lakewood Detective Played Aerosmith's 'Dude (Looks Like a Lady)' While a Transgender Woman Was Being Interviewed

The song is funny and I hate when a dude decides to put on a dress and thinks his gender magically changed. This used to be labeled a mental disorder but now it's just a sign of the times. It all goes back to parenting. Who wants to bet he had horrible parents?

Re: “FTA Has Granted City, RTA 30-Day Extension on $12 Million Public Square Debt

The FTA is very clear that unless Superior Ave reopens to transit the $12 million dollars repayment will be enforced. IMO no traffic study can ever show time saving without Superior open. The rest just shows time can be saved with better efficency to all routes
