Re: “Warehouse District Parking Lots Could Blossom Into High-Rise Apartments

Awesome!!! It will be nice to see that space filled with something other than half full parking lots, while filling in a gap in the skyline

Re: “The Steelyard Wal-Mart is the Worst Wal-Mart in America

I thought I was the only one who hated this place. My mother and I use to go here very frequently til one day we came and there was nothing at all on the shelves. But there was plenty of staff walking around on there phones. Also there is never any lines open if there is its only one or two. The only time the store was actually looking and running decently was the day before black Friday.

Re: “Ohio Hospital Employee Tells Little Girl That Boy Who Sliced Her Face Open Probably Just 'Likes' Her

A 4 year old liking a girl and attacked is something we have not heard before. I think that the parents should do something about this rather than making it a public news.

Re: “‘The Night Before’ Takes an Irreverent Look at the Holidays

This is another racist movie where fat ugly Seth Rogen plays an explicitly Jewish character, while good-looking Jewish actors (Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lizzy Caplan, this time) play non-Jews. As a matter of fact, despite being the son of two Jewish parents, Gordon-Levitt has never explicitly played his own ethnicity once in his entire 30 years of acting. Is there a problem, Joey?

This is the same racist trick Rogen pulls every time. He always casts himself as an explicit Jewish character opposite non-Jewish characters played by good-looking Jews (Paul Rudd, James Franco, Dave Franco, Zac Efron, Halston Sage, etc.).

And this new film is from the same studio, S.S.ony, that released last year’s Fury, about fighting Nazis during WWII. Fury starred no less than four Jews (Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal, Jason Isaacs, and Shia LaBeouf), yet none of the characters were Jewish and Jews and the Holocaust were never mentioned. Gee, maybe they should have cast Seth Rogen as a “funny” Jewish soldier who died early on in the film.

Actors of fully Jewish background: Logan Lerman, Natalie Portman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mila Kunis, Bar Refaeli, James Wolk, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Julian Morris, Adam Brody, Esti Ginzburg, Kat Dennings, Gabriel Macht, Erin Heatherton, Odeya Rush, Anton Yelchin, Paul Rudd, Scott Mechlowicz, Lisa Kudrow, Lizzy Caplan, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Gal Gadot, Debra Messing, Robert Kazinsky, Melanie Laurent, Shiri Appleby, Justin Bartha, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Margarita Levieva, Elizabeth Berkley, Halston Sage, Seth Gabel, Corey Stoll, Mia Kirshner, Alden Ehrenreich, Eric Balfour, Jason Isaacs, Jon Bernthal, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy.

Andrew Garfield and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are Jewish, too (though I don’t know if both of their parents are).

Actors with Jewish mothers and non-Jewish fathers: Jake Gyllenhaal, Dave Franco, James Franco, Scarlett Johansson, Daniel Day-Lewis, Daniel Radcliffe, Alison Brie, Eva Green, Joaquin Phoenix, River Phoenix, Emmy Rossum, Rashida Jones, Jennifer Connelly, Sofia Black D’Elia, Nora Arnezeder, Goldie Hawn, Ginnifer Goodwin, Amanda Peet, Eric Dane, Jeremy Jordan, Joel Kinnaman, Ben Barnes, Patricia Arquette, Kyra Sedgwick, Dave Annable, Ryan Potter.

Actors with Jewish fathers and non-Jewish mothers, who themselves were either raised as Jews and/or identify as Jews: Ezra Miller, Gwyneth Paltrow, Alexa Davalos, Nat Wolff, Nicola Peltz, James Maslow, Josh Bowman, Winona Ryder, Michael Douglas, Ben Foster, Jamie Lee Curtis, Nikki Reed, Zac Efron, Jonathan Keltz, Paul Newman.

Oh, and Ansel Elgort’s father is Jewish, though I don’t know how Ansel was raised. Robert Downey, Jr. and Sean Penn were also born to Jewish fathers and non-Jewish mothers. Armie Hammer and Chris Pine are part Jewish.

Actors with one Jewish-born parent and one parent who converted to Judaism: Dianna Agron, Sara Paxton (whose father converted, not her mother), Alicia Silverstone, Jamie-Lynn Sigler.

Re: “Cleveland's Favorite Fake Construction Worker is Apparently Back

I picked this guy up once about 8 years ago from the public square area. Said something about needing a ride to the construction crew. Then something about a piece of rebar puncturing his tire. Then something about needing gas. I remember I was transporting a cake in my front seat and he had to hold it lol. I dropped him off at the BP downtown and I think he still owes me $20. Then he tried the same thing with my buddy a few months later but I was able to warn him.

Re: “Cleveland's Favorite Fake Construction Worker is Apparently Back

I picked this guy up on the corner of Lorain and w150th. Gave him a ride down the street to BP. He smelled terrible and had some off the wall story about his truck being broke down. By the time we got to BP he asked me for $5 to replace some part on his truck then i knew this guy was just some POS bum.

Re: “Cleveland's Favorite Fake Construction Worker is Apparently Back

Several years ago, I was driving home on Chester and this dude knocks on my window, then just gets in my car. Then he's like "yo.. U see those construction workers in like 2 more stop lights? I need a ride up there." At that point I was trying to process: A) the fact that he just got in my car and B) if he was actually a construction worker, why was he unable to just walk the 2 blocks? Given that he was already in my car, and without knowing whether he was a danger, I proceeded to give him a ride.

Once we got to the light, he seemed to forget that he asked me to be dropped off there, and started rambling about how his father had just passed away the previous week. At that point I noticed alcohol on his breath, and feeling a bit nervous, I tried to maintain a friendly conversation and determine where I could drop him off.

Then, all of a sudden, he said "mannnnn!! I'm gonna buy you a toothless prostitute!" Dumbfounded, I replied with "thanks, but no thanks", and something along the lines of "what did I do to deserve such an act?" It was then that he thanked me for offering to give him money for a gas can, but the funny thing was that he had not even asked me for money. It got even more sketchy when he kept trying to get me to turn down uninhabited side streets. Finally I found a gas station, told him to get out, and gave him a $20.

In hindsight, I'm not sure whether giving him money was the most appropriate course of action, but clearly he was in a bad situation for whatever reason, and if paying $20 was a way to get him out of my car, it was a worthwhile investment.

It's interesting to see this article and realize that there are others with similar experiences. Hopefully it will raise some awareness and people can avoid this guy. Or better yet, he gets his act together and gets a job--perhaps as a construction worker!!

Re: “Cleveland's Favorite Fake Construction Worker is Apparently Back

unreal. i picked up this dude about 6-7 years ago on e.9th. He was in full construction garb and said his truck was broke down and asked if i could drop him off near mlk-not before he asked me for money. I asked if three bucks was ok- he said it wasn't-lol. He had me drive him into the belly of East Cleveland before he got out at the intersection of Superior and boarded up gas station st... I'm an idiot. Nice guy though..

Re: “Cleveland's Favorite Fake Construction Worker is Apparently Back

WTF is with all these people picking up hitchhikers? Is that EVER a good idea? I don't give a shit if you're a construction worker or James Franco, I'm not picking you up unless you're flagging me down with a shotgun. Even then it's debatable if I'm going to stop. This ain't Saugerties NY circa 1969.

Re: “Cleveland's Favorite Fake Construction Worker is Apparently Back

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I picked up this dude last spring off of Chagrin boulevard and 271. He jumped out into the road right before the on ramp to 271 and waived me down. He looked like a construction worker so I stopped. He asked for a ride "2 exits" up to meet up with his crew because his truck broke down. I had like 10 seconds to make a decision and I felt bad under pressure and picked him up. He was full of it and changed his story from "2 exits" to needing to go to Macedonia. He then said "well that's really far so I think I just need like 60 bucks to get my truck fixed". Anyway, long story but I turned around and dropped him back off.

Re: “Is a Cleveland RTA Rail Shutdown Unavoidable?

Does anyone know the reason that RTA runs two styles of train cars? Seems like a no-brainer that this format would eventually be more difficult to operate.

Re: “Ian James Calls Marijuana Mascot a 'Big Mistake,' Promises Free Market Legalization Plan

Casino gambling took several decades - and it began with the Spitzer family - for a plan to finally be approved by voters. The competing interests on the marijuana issue need to coalesce around one proposal.....or this could be another tedious long haul of failure at the statewide ballot box.

If they can't get a grower oligopoly, who will pay for the signatures and advertising? How will Ian James get paid?
