Re: “AT&T Has Historically Excluded Cleveland's Poorest Neighborhoods From Its Internet Access Improvements

Not surprising. I lived near Shaker Square in 2010 (and near west side since) and tried to get AT&T. They installed it and the service was awful. TV and internet froze consistently. I just gave up. The lack of competition for cable/internet services in the city is a joke.

Armond Budish is a smiling puppet for Dan Gilbert -- and the fool doesn't realize that the strings will be sliced on his expiration date.

Re: “Ohio is Rolling Out More Rules on Medical Marijuana Law

I say just make it recreational. I'm sure the medical Marijuana is better for everyon . But I know somehow you guys found away to get some kind of medicine in it. I refuse to try it. Not even the vases. I am allergic to everything medicine that has been given to me for my health reasons. I refuse the cannabis I'm sorry. Just personal for me. So I'd rather grow my own Reggie. This way I know what's in it. And I don't want to chance my life with is. My everyday life is scary enough. Knowing that a simple migraine can kill me. No thanks. Just please make it 150% everything Marijuana legal. Counting recreational. And I need my medicin . And I can not afford anyone that won't help make it legal. This is my life. Not anyone else's. And I have 2 young kids that could end up loosing their mom at a young age. Just waiting till the day I can grow my own. And have no worries or daily struggles. Like missing out on my kids growing up BC I'm stuck on a couch or bed. And so many could benefit from this. But BC 1 person don't like it. We have to please them once again. Well this time. Try to male it for the ppl that could get the help they need from it. We can not please everyone. If u don't believe me. Then pick a day that everyone u expect to be their. I bet u not everyone will make it. So let's make this happen and work already. I need this just as much as many of others that can as well. So can we pull this off and make it legal ASAP. THANKS

Re: “Loganberry Books Shelves Men's Books Backwards as a 'Metaphor of Silencing the Male Voice'

Personally I've been listening to a cacophony of male voices for 60 years and I'm damned sick and tired of it. The male voices coming form Washington DC recently have been especially loathsome.

You go Loganberry!

Re: “Cleveland Clinic CEO Toby Cosgrove is 'Concerned' About New Health Care Bill

Well, ol' Toby has a VIP pass into the White House through his spot on the President's Strategic and Policy Forum. Let's see if he has the guts to challenge The Don on this ill-conceived monstrosity masquerading as a practical piece of legislation....since the intoxication of being a major player inside The Beltway often means keeping one's mouth firmly shut for a wide and greasy smile.

Re: “Loganberry Books Shelves Men's Books Backwards as a 'Metaphor of Silencing the Male Voice'

Shows the true man-hating colors of third-wave feminism. Progressive SJW third-wave feminists will continue to get people like Trump elected and continue to diminish the influence of the Democratic Party. Obviously, to any reasonable person, this act is extremely silly. If women are equal, there should be no need to waste time turning books around.

The Women's March website tells women what they should do (Orwellian):

1) Women take the day off, from paid and unpaid labor

2) Avoid shopping for one day (with exceptions for small, women- and minority-owned businesses).

3) Wear RED in solidarity with A Day Without A Woman

Translation:

1) Lose money if you don't get paid days off and wonder why there is an income gap (not a wage gap)

2) Don't shop at businesses owned by white men.

3) Wear Communist colors. (kind of a tongue-in-cheek funny one)


Awesome stuff for equality! As we know, there are no rights that men have in the United States that women do not have. It's complete nonsense. Trump has done nothing that hurts women whatsoever.

The argument by the SJW that males are being "snowflakes" is insanely stupid. Pointing out the hypocrisy and idiocy of this movement does not mean I am a snowflake. It means I am voicing my opinion that this is stupid.

Since in reality the majority of people think SJW antics are stupid, this will hurt business more than anything. Ivanka Trump's sales are higher than ever.

Re: “A Dated Menu and Uneven Execution Hamper Merchant Street Eatery's Hopes of Lasting

I have been to this spot twice since this review was posted and I can say with certainty that this place is worth another visit. I visited when it first opened and would agree with most of the comments from Doug; however, the quality and execution has improved dramatically. I had the steak tartar the other night and it was perfect and very reasonably priced. Wine list is very good and gives a lot of options with a lean to old world (which suits me and the Merchant Street offerings). I strongly recommend giving another look at this place, I was very pleased that the owner listed and improved.

Re: “Public Square Opens to Buses with New, Ugly Safety Features

So I'm guessing the markets and food trucks are now gone on nice days in the summer? This is such a shame as it really takes away from the square. I walk through everyday and the buses going down Superior have not alleviated much of the traffic around the square at all. I don't understand the clamoring for opening the square beside: "they said they would when it was built". It obviously looked nicer/had unique uses that will now go away. I think Rebol will probably close and you will see much less use of the splash pad, as this will basically be an outdoor bus station from here on out.

Re: “2017 MAC Tournament

The big talk among hardwood pundits may surround any MAC assistant coaches who could be ready to take the next step.....and may be the next head coach at Cleveland State due to the retirement of Gary Waters. The Vikings remain an afterthought with area sports fans and the upcoming reboot cannot be a squandered opportunity to reintroduce the program on the recruiting trail. And if CSU officials are dreaming big for a mid-major team -- Mark Gottfried is available.

Re: “NBC Nightly News Covers Growing Heroin Epidemic in Ohio with a Family Destroyed By Addiction: VIDEO

.... On Monday March 6th, I encountered for the first time in my life, a young man in trouble.. I had never known this stranger, never seen him, had never heard his voice nor did I know his name.
... I meet his lifeless body as he lay on the floor in some body else's home.. Not breathing, no pulse, fixed and non reactive pupils.. He was clinically dead.. Gone... No longer breathing...
..... I dropped to my knees without even knowing that I was gonna be the one that was to breath the life back into air less lungs that has just stopped.. He was blue..... He has no color of life in him, no blood pumping through the heart.... AND NO PULSE... Everything that used to be vital, just stopped...

.. HERON CLAIMED ITS 11 TH VICTIM THAT DAY..... AND I WAS THE ONE TO ADMINISTER FULL BLOWN RESESITATION ALONG WITH A CARDIO THUMP TO HELP JUMP START A LIFELESS HEART.
... For 23 of the longest minutes of my life to date, I was that man's only means of getting a 2nd chance... Every time I stopped compressions, his pulse would stop.... I finally was told by some unknown person to me that this man's name was/is Joey. And that he'd over dosed..... And had three small children 2 doors down from where deaths angel was waiting.
..... I was so tired.. I was doing all this with no help nor any guidance.. As I'm trained and certified in all aspects of CPR & CPI.. My resolve, however, only got stronger.... I wasn't going to give up on three little girls daddy....
........ I have no clue how I even did what id done.. I had done the imagable...... I breathed sweet air filled with life back into stillness.. I gve chest compressions to a still heart that by my hand, would slowly return life back to him.. This stranger that I knew nothing about, and cared far more for his well being... And now that its the day after, I've been a total mess......
....... When Joey was taken out by medics, his still lifeless body was wrapped in a sheet.. I didn't ask the unimagebable..... I couldn't force the words out of mouth.... I just stood in the same place...... Rooted to the very floor by my shaking legs and trembling body.. I was deeply saddened and heart broke..
.......Nobody knows or knew how long Joey had been laying on that cold bathroom floor..... Maybe 5 minutes..... Perhaps as long as 10 before he was found.. And no, it wasn't me that found him.. I wasn't even inside the home this took place in.. I was the one that heard the screams... And I was to meet a silent Joey for the first time..... And follow the events of the evening up with a sleepless night of worry and such a deepened sense of fear...... Fear that I had failed Joey when he needed a stranger's touch.... I feared the very worse.....
......... But today....... Ahhhh, sweet today.,, I received word that JOEY WAS VERY MUCH ALIVE & SUFFERED NO LONG TERM SIDE EFFECTS FROM THE NEARLY LETHAL DOSE OF HEROIN.....NO BRAIN DAMAGE NOR DAMAGE DONE TO HIS BODY..
......... I wanted to share this because my heart's still heavy.. As I know 11 folks lost the very life God had bestowed upon them.. 11 families will never get another hug or the opportunity to say good-bye.....
.......... I never thought in a million years that my very mouth and hands would meet up with a national terrorist known as HEROIN..... Yet I did.. We must tell the story of survival.. To breath some life and hope back into dying hearts filled by this nasty epidemic taking hundreds of lives a day...... So that we don't ever forget, God is greater than the devil and his evil tongue.....
.......... So we pray...... And we do it AS ONE.... NEVER FORGETTING THE STRENGTH WE EMBRACE AS A SOCIETY BEING THE SAME UNIT OF CARING FOR THE NEXT WOUNDED SOUL.....
