The written word is changing now very fast. The old media giants who held on to its right of reporting and taking sides as they saw fit, the owners and the assumed collective opinions of the consumers, the local readers, all are confused beyond reason now because they have forgotten what their purpose is. Are you left wing? or right wing? Liberal or conservative? Who are your purse strings and how much input do they have on the written word of the paper in question? What sports teams are they fans of and what corporations do the owners and uppers interact with and support? The social media is pulling the politics out of much reporting and that is a hard thing for the major newspapers and networks to come to grips with. Big Powers in the media used to be able to kill a story or just let the Star or the Enquire handle it and act like it was just gossip and not true. Sometimes they were right and some times they just did not wnat their name on the kind of truth which the story held.
Was the old 'Pooch Parade' done by the APL? Was it Captain Penny who promoted it?
There is a silent mantra which moves through the city tonight. It speaks of red skies and freezing H2O. It gives hints of ice-fishing and igloos and the adaptation of life.....any where. The Spring will soon change the minds of ice and Winter into temperatures and smells of hope and Lilac which will transport us like a laser beam back to a time of youth and the smells of Lilac and Easter; revolation and re-birth and metamorphisis. We will feel John The Baptist on our rivers of the Rocky and the Cuyahoga and welcome him to come in from the wild and the eating of Locust and Honey to the smells of Spring and the tastes of compost and the produce which it will bring fourth in our Urban Gardens of Cleveland. "Fish. flesh and foul commend; whatever is begotten, born, and dies in the sensual music of time and life and space and humanity and the history which cries out to be realized and felt.
GreasedMonkey: So true. Incredible amounts of cash which would get into the system through other than drug cartels and big dealers..and small dealers. We could like put a dome on the stadium in maybe ten days or so of revenues. We could hire more cops and fireman and maybe even get some big bucks sent to the failing school systems..maybe even more than the lotto gives..Gosh I hope it would be.. Just the medical advantages have not been really given enough R & D. I know if I am around any type of high person the most peaceful is the weed smoker, and the worst is the drunk and meth combo: Man, those hill-billys are crazy! Their eyes bug out like rabid frogs and they holster their tire-iron on one side and a .45 on the other side. I know that many do not like me because I am a liberal and a big supporter of the President, but I do think this city of Cleveland can be great (er) in the near future as a result of the infrastructure and the people who given half a chance are both inovative and productive people who like to help others and work together. No matter if weed becomes part of the positive cash flow or not, Cleveland is going to become great like they were during the industrial revolution..maybe more so.
The written paper must adapt to change. The PD has had many opportunites to become a good newspaper, but they remained without investigative reporting and then without any balls at all. The news industry, like so many others, run their papers and businesses with more worry about liability and often no concern at all with the day-to-day oportunities to be controversial and lively and ready for debate. Censorship and editor demands made by the bean-counters and money leverage. The PD is still better than the Dispatch. Talk about a republican owned media. Central Ohio might be the most republican run paper in history. And John K, our governor, is the star player for the 10 or so republicans who run Central Ohio. That Franklin County voted for Obama was a pleasant surprise.
@joe18750: The conservatives are falling apart and The Norquist Pledge will tarnish all representatives who signed--90% of the GOP signed this insane pledge to Lobbyists with big money. Joe. Do you think anything positive? Try it. There is soon going to be no republican party as you have bought the ideas of the far right and now you and the GOP is being seen as the number one problem in the USA today. The election clearly pointed out to everyone with a brain, that the republican party had become a party of empty and angry white men. You, Joe, represent the ideas of the uppiddy new age teaparty and Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. What a joke all of your type are and still think they have the right ideas about the USA and the world at large. The GOP must change its core ideas 180 degrees. But Joe your type of republican can not get rid of the wrong ideas that is sinking the GOP. I like that your negative attitude and your represntation of the conservative mentality of today comes through so clearly for readers to see the typical conservative failed ideas.
