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

A system like this could eliminate many busses.

Trump's going to implement the Albert Porter freeway plan instead.

Re: “Tickets for Donut Fest on Sale January 19 at Noon

OK, I 'm nuts. They're only $30! Perhaps I was looking at a different city.

Re: “Tickets for Donut Fest on Sale January 19 at Noon

Disappointing to see that tickets are actually $35, and, with a handling fee and processing fee, come out to more than $40/ticket. Sure, it's a small difference, but that adds up when you are purchasing several tickets.

No, Detroit has switched over almost entirely to new, modern LED street lighting.

Awesome stuff. Great respect for their passion for paying a living wage and staying authentic. I hope to see this continue as they expand.

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

That is awesome. Three suggestions at first glance:
~* Have the western terminus of the "E" line extend to the Clague and Westlake P&R
~* Somehow work in the North Olmsted P&R with either the "D" or "E" lines
~* Extend the eastern terminus of the "A" line out to the Euclid P&R

Re: “An Akron Man Set Himself on Fire After Yelling About Donald Trump: UPDATE

There has been a longstanding policy of mainstream media not to cover these kinds of politically motivated suicides.
There have been many political suicides in recent years, and many of those have lit themselves on fire in a public place, some people protesting against global corporatization, Wall St. corruption and the banking system, against state terrorism (quaintly referred to by mainstream media as ``the war on terror``), against some of Barak Obama`s policies and against UN policies, some have had thousands of witnesses and local media, independent media coverage, etc, but mainstream outlets have an ``ethical`` position against publicizing politically motivated suicides.

But this one is about Trump, so the message is allowed to make it through. Very telling.

Re: “Here's Cleveland at Night as Seen From the International Space Station

You can clearly make out the City of Detroit, embedded within the surrounding suburbs and metro area, as it looks silvery instead of yellow.

Gotta be the Detroit street lighting...they apparently still have the older, less intrusive, and less harsh mercury vapor lights, instead of the sodium vapor lights that everybody else has received over the last forty-plus years.

Chicago got them in the mid-70s, and Cleveland got theirs in the mid-Nineties, and nothing has looked the same ever since.

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

Half a dozen marches? If Orangy Boy wins a second term, I will have been in half a dozen DECADES worth of marches.

Also Marches (like the month), as I will...assuming I'm still breathing...be pushing eighty by then.

Hope my knees hold out.

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

If the subway planned and started back in the 1920-30s had been built, we'd already have a subway and el system that would have taken the Red Line from the Airport to East Cleveland via Downtown, except right over or under Detroit and Euclid, as well as another line extending over Pearl and connecting to the Red Line at W 25th & Detroit. This would be on top of the Blue & Green lines we have today. It's likely the line down Pearl would extend at least to Parma Heights if not Strongsville by now, and the one to the Airport into Berea. Another line was supposed to be added later down Superior. There would be little need for the Downtown Loop buses,since the subway would have been a loop. The Healthline and the Cleveland State BRT lines would also never have been needed because a subway would have been there instead. The Red Line would have stations in totally convenient locations instead of being in the middle of an industrial wasteland, far from any homes or storefronts. And Downtown and Ohio City would have had several stations rather than just one each, making it really convenient to take the subway to work and not walk but a block or two from the stop.

As it was, only the segment between W 25th & Detroit and W 9th & Superior was ever built, as it was part of the Veterans Memorial Bridge. This only ran for a brief period of time until it was closed because none of the rest of the system was ever built. Had it been built, perhaps department stores would still exist on Euclid Avenue and Downtown would never have hollowed out like it did. This was all brought to us by a Cuyahoga County Engineer who was bought and paid for by automotive interests who wanted to sell cars. This engineer reigned for decades and torpedoed any progress on the subway through the 1950s. The only thing Cleveland got was the Red Line, which followed abandoned freight tracks that hardly came close to where people really needed to go. It's a lesson that politicians will talk the people into bringing their own demise as long as the corporate money is there for their campaigns.

Re: “Astoria Market and Cafe Delivers an Unmatched Dining and Shopping Experience

This is a great new addition to Cleveland's dining scene. The restaurant is bright and open. The menu is diversely Mediterranean. The prices are reasonable and everyone, from the owners to the restaurant staff and counter staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Don't let the temporary work affecting traffic on Detroit Avenue stop you from trying Astoria.
