Re: “Pride Inc. CEO Todd Saporito Will be Stepping Down, but not Because of Petition Calling for Resignation

I am really am amazed with the self-entitlement of some of the commenters.

Todd apparently stepped up to the plate when no one else would. Most of the complainers just sit around a bar all year just expecting a massive Pride event to magically appear once a year, an event they may or may not patronize, depending on their whim, and, if they attend, belligerently hand over a $5 donation like it was their life savings -- as if they were funding anything more than a minute fraction of a fraction of the costs of mounting such an event.

Want to know what the real problem is, folks? Check a mirror -- for something other than plucked eyebrows.

Re: “Local Artists Work to Reroute Cleveland Narrative Ahead of RNC

Sometimes, like during RNC, artists need to just accept their own irrelevance. No one needs to convince anyone that Cleveland still has some bad neighborhoods.

Re: “Besides a New Pop-Up Series, Mely’s Kainan Is the Only Place in NEO to Score Filipino Cuisine

Will DOUGLAS please do a bit of research before pretending to know what the Filipino food situation is in Cleveland? Nipa Hut not only has a Saturday buffet, it has daily restaurant service -- a Filipino style dining room with a large selection that diners can order from a walk-up a counter. Really, this Is at least the second time that Douglas has written about Filipino food in Northeast Ohio and neglected to mention this popular restaurant component of a popular Filipino grocery store.

Re: “New Twice-Weekly Pop-Ups at Spotted Owl Will Introduce Diners to Filipino Food

Sorry, make that DOUG, not Dave, and it should be "grocery store," not "grocery story."

Re: “New Twice-Weekly Pop-Ups at Spotted Owl Will Introduce Diners to Filipino Food

It's nice to here more news about Filipino food offerings in Northeast Ohio, but Dave should have done his homework:

In addition to take-out places in Parma and Elyria, there is a long-standing restaurant with daily counter service and fully dining room (with a full buffet on Saturdays), which is part of the Filipino grocery story Nipa Hut.

Re: “Cleveland Named One of America’s Best Cities for Sweet Tooths

With Chicago, Minneapolis and Kansas City also on the list, why does Cleveland -- a city a few hours away from the New York border -- get the hoary "heartland" cliche?
I'm glad Cleveland got on the list, but I wish the author was as good a writer as ice-cream eater.

Re: “More Casino Employee Complaints

Funny how people with actual casino experience are commenting that this employee bruhaha is nothing unusual -- a simple weeding out process of people who were unaware of the rigors of working at a casino, and customers who are angry because the casino is obviously crowded and they can't get money simply by pulling the slot lever. Rock Gaming could have easily brought in more workers from out of town and avoided a lot of problems, but is taking a chance on local workers.
