Re: “'Heartbeat Bill' Abortion Ban Bill Heads for Governor Kasich's Desk After Ohio Senate and House Passage

I do love North Missitucky so. Old times there are not forgotten.

Re: “Ohio Lawmakers May Allow Pet Stores to Sell Puppies from Puppy Mills

Now that Dick Goddard has retired from Fox-8, maybe this will give him something to do. But knowing the glacial speed at which laws are changed in Ohio, he will have to live to be a hundred years old before he sees positive results.

Re: “Dead & Company to Play Blossom in 2017

Expect to be rudely handled at the gate by security folks who make TSA people look good. You'll feel like you did if you flew in the weeks and months after 9/11...and don't forget those clear plastic bags, people!

I swore I would never go to Blossom again for rock music...not while they are under the ruling thumb of Live Nation. The fun ends when you leave the parking lot. And when you come out and want to go home, better not have anything planned for the next day, like maybe a job. You'll be in a bottleneck until the wee, small hours.

Fuck it. Pass.

Re: “Why We Decorate for the Holidays and Fight the Dark

Um, well...yes. Right. This is another in a sporadic series of humorous columns. And you are a humorist. Stand-up with a keyboard. I understand that. And you went a little overboard and a little long, but you were doing fine.. Until...

Until you stopped going gently into the long night, and began to rage against the dying of the light, and weren't so funny anymore. But I have SAD, so I understand where you're coming from on that score, too.

Hell, yeah, December sucks. The prison door slams shut, even with all the twinkling lights, the glitter, the glitz, the tinsel. But if you are this over-wrought in bleak December, how in the hell do you make it through bitter, brittle January...let alone the tortures of February and the agonies of March?

Yes, the blue sky disappears, the sun hides and sulks behind those mean-looking clouds or a sheet of endless Cleveland Sky Gray, and the snow and cold kick us in the ass. But the light does not "eke" away...whatever the hell that is...it oozes away...a minute or two less of it every day...until it starts to come back by the same minute amount (get it?) in January and February.

The worst time is not the time of the Solstice...it is all of January. Daylight has lengthened, but not all that much...and we are into the coldest period of average temperatures for almost the entire month. January is the bottom of the abyss, before long slow climb to July begins once again.

Worse still, we have no joyous January holidays...unless you can do something colorful and sparkly with MLK Day...to brighten the corner where we are. But thanks for sharing.

Re: “Steve Loomis Says He Won't Resign From the Cleveland Community Police Commission

WTF does being heterosexual, white male, conservative, Catholic, married father and grandfather, military veteran, 23 year resident of Cleveland have to do with the issue? Of course, it's Trump's America now, and this is what our new "hee-rows" are made of.

The only thing that should really be important on that laundry-list, knee-jerk resume are those 23 years of decorated law enforcement experience. And the more he continues to act like a rednecked North Missitucky jerkoff, the less they matter, too.

Fire him from the Commission and then take his badge and gun away before he does something stupid and gives Cleveland yet another black eye. Or worse. Like a bullet in somebody's head. Just fucking do it already...and do it now.

Re: “Ohio Had the Most Fatal Drug Overdoses in Nation in 2014, Numbers Continue Climbing

I started to say "I like to think I am too smart to get hooked," but some pretty smart people have become junkies.. Why Oh Why Oh Why Ohio? Are there just a lot of stupid lowlifes here, or what? Gotta be a more complex reason than stupidity and lowlifery. Especially if we outrank California. It's the economy--right , stupids??

Re: “Ohio Had the Most Fatal Drug Overdoses in Nation in 2014, Numbers Continue Climbing

Why Ohio? Despair over the economy? The lack of education? What makes people here do this?

I'm not nave or stupid, at least I like to think so, but I don't understand. I'm an old geezer, so I lived through the Sixties and Seventies, and believe me, I did more than my share of inhaling. Did a lot of other stupid things, too. Watched junkies shooting up in New York and out West. But I was never dumb enough to join them. It wasn't just the fear and horror of needles, either.
