Re: “CM Punk is Making UFC Debut Later This Year at UFC 203 in Cleveland

Somewhat forgotten in the early promotional shuffle is local fighter Jessica Eye in a "crossroads" match against Bethe Correia. Both bantamweights need an impressive win to stride back into the championship picture.

Re: “RTA Is Using Today's Championship Parade Craziness to Remind Northeast Ohio That It's Underfunded

With things back to normal, RTA officials will need to get back to typical lobbying efforts in Columbus - and elsewhere - for additional funding.

RTA is never really prepared for anything major. Remember the blizzard a few years ago? Same thing. It's crisis management down there. And for as much as they are pumping it it's not a funding issue it's a MANAGEMENT ISSUE.

I was all about the rapid till I had a thousand people running towards me due to shots fired on y way to it. I'd rather swim back home than take th rapid again after today.

A crowd of 1.3 million would tax (pun intended) a system the size of Chicago's...and this is not Chicago.
Crowds like this come along, unfortunately, once in a lifetime. Maybe we should be happy that it happened in OUR lifetime.

The last victory parade was in 1948, from downtown to University Circle...with no Rapid trains and only buses and streetcars to bring the people to the route. Maybe a similar, longer parade route might have helped spread out the crowds a bit.

Re: “The Rapid Is Nuts Right Now. Consider the Bus

My wife and I endured the RTA Rail Zoo. Two hours each way from the Far West Side. Hyping the use of bus transit might have helped ease the pain.

For two days, all the local TV nooze outlets and the intertubes (including the PD) stressed ONLY use of rail transit, so the distant suburbanites and out-of-county folks (who only know about the existence of the Rapid trains...and barely at that) flocked to the RTA Park-and-Ride lots. Not surprising buses were lightly patronized. Mentioning a few of the longer bus routes, as alternative modes of transport, might have helped.

The Rapid can barely accommodate the crowds on a typical St. Patrick's Day. Who in the hell can seriously expect the system NOT to collapse from the equivalent of FIVE of them, all at once?

They can always go without Public Funding, and charge a fair fee for their services. Do they really think they're entitled to my tax money?

Re: “The Rapid Is Nuts Right Now. Consider the Bus

how long until the 'we're afraid of downtown' suburbanites chime in saying that this completely unique and unprecedented event was 'handled horribly' and 'the RTA is the worst?'

have fun everyone!

Re: “Dave's Will Be Crippled By Minimum Wage Increase

No! Minimum wage needs to be increased state-wide. A city-only increase will kill Cleveland. Businesses WILL LEAVE taking jobs with them. In addition, there seems to be an assumption that by increasing minimum wage in Cleveland, people in Cleveland who are now living at poverty level will start getting better pay and will get off government assistance- but who says that it will be Clevelanders getting the jobs? Many of the local stores/restaurants have a high turnover of employees. When they hire new employees, there are no guarantees that these places will hire Cleveland residents. You can bet that teens and those who are working at minimum wage jobs in the burbs right now won't think twice about coming in to Cleveland to work so they can double their salaries. And those people will not return to Cleveland to do their shopping!

This will be a disaster if it goes Cleveland-only.
