Of course, this is not a laughing matter. The danger to cars, to drivers, and to the children who have to sit in these vehicles along with the major potential for injury, is a sad commentary on both Cleveland and Lakewood. Both seem to deny responsibility for the possible casualties to property and people. You need a sense of humor to get to the freeways along here. Wasn't it the mayor of Cleveland who wanted to lower the speed along the west shoreway with his off-hand comment about "let them (the drivers) stop and smell the roses?" Clearly this shows we can assume his similar position on other issues, including the life-threatening crevasses they call potholes.
All that work and the final insult is having our shoreway turn into a 35 MPH traffic light mess (probably turning ever two minutes). I hope we get tickets to the premiere but something tells me that only the east side will get tickets. Is anyone worried that "our" premiere" is on April Fools Day?
Hey, hey, hey, United! Hold it right there! What about all the money C-town has poured into a new convention center? Just so we could get more travelers to fly in here. The locals went through a lot of inconvenience and scandal and hardship just to get this thing built. We don't need this albatross hanging over us!!
Simple solution: Cleveland is supposed to have A-list advertising agencies here. Just have one of them design a better logo. It's their job, you know. The taxpayers will be paying for it in the end anyway. At least we can have something that isn't generic (like a blank brown background for a football team) and we all can take pride in the result. At least, until someone else complains.

Food stamps mean food. So let's get out there and give these people what they are supposed to get: well balanced meals. Food stamps can get off point. A lot. So ditch the cigarettes. And let's deliver the goods. Literally. Even schools have rules on what kids have to eat for lunch. Should they redeem foodstamps at school cafeterias? Then again, schools have better food than most. Maybe schools can earn a little extra money on the side by selling their extra food to homes, too. It sounds like a project that should keep them from asking voters for more money on every ballot.
RIGHT! This IS a lame slideshow. Let's talk about what's REALLY wrong with Cleveland: for starters, what about those attacks on Westsiders by all those who want to change the shoreway from a major artery bringing hurried drivers into the city who try to avoid the already-jammed-at-a-crawl I-90? Certain people have this insane idea to lower the speed limit to a leisurely 35 so, as the mayor so eloquently put it, we can "stop and smell the roses." Really? Really? Just a quick money-grab to get some government funding. But at what cost? Did they learn NOTHING from the Avengers west shoreway temporary shutdown?? The city was almost sued. Remember?
