Re: “RTA Joins City in Asking for Extension on $12 Million FTA Repayment

Any fool can stand at public square for 5 minutes and see the impact of having shut down that road.

Re: “Beachwood Mall Releases New Supervision Rules for Minors After Post-Christmas 'Disturbance'

If this is an organized attempt to disrupt, destroy and loot, it needs to be met with organized resistance by law enforcement....and by any means necessary. Not just here, but all over the country.

The future sales of Coach purses are at stake. Keep Beachwood Mall rich and white!

Re: “Kent State Ranked Top Ten Nationally for Sugar Baby/Daddy Website Signups

Is this a sick joke, or what? Seriously?

I'm afraid to ask...but does this mean they whore themselves out for four years so they can pay for a degree? Or does one john simply foot all their educational bills? I guess the "sugar baby/sugar daddy" thing tells me all I needed to know.

Could be worse...they could do the deed while parked in the lot where the Kent Four fell. Maybe some of them do. I'd be neither shocked nor surprised.

Re: “Cleveland Clinic to Discipline Physician Who Published Anti-Vac Opinion Piece on Cleveland.com

I had measles....no lasting effects, but certainly that was possible. It is irresponsible to motivate parents to resist vaccines as these diseases are reappearing.

It is not a free speech issue. This man is a doctor in a highly visible position inside one of the nation's best hospitals. He was addressing the general public, not fellow scientists. The harm associated with failing to vaccinate is not negligible.

I would like it if we could refrain from normalizing prostitution for college girls. It isn't anymore safe or mentally healthy behavior when associated with a website than when practiced on street corners.

Re: “Kirtland Police Officer Slams Man's Head Onto Street, According to Video and Lawsuit

The video isn't entirely clear to me, but I don't see the officer do anything egregiously wrong. This citizen was (it appears) uncooperative and resisted.

Re: “County Jail Adds Extra Patrols in Jail II Instead of Fixing Problems

So if a guard gets injured by a inmate who breeches his door? Isn't the taxpayers (County) still liable. Seems like a lawyers dream. Does this director have any brains?

Re: “RTA Joins City in Asking for Extension on $12 Million FTA Repayment

If Mayor Jackson, The City of Cleveland Police Chief, and RTA are cooperatively working together why did all 3 file separate letters to the FTA. If you read Mayor Jackson's letter he misstates the cost of the redesign. He states it cost $36.5 million when t cost $50 million. To ignore the FTA repayment as not a hardship to GCRTA shows how out of touch TPTB are. I hope FTA denies the extension , They have had since August 1 to have done these studies. They have dragged their heels and now wan more time. I don't believe this traffic study will be unbiased.

Re: “The Fight Over How Cuyahoga County's Arts Funding is Given to Artists

I agree with Lee. I find it terribly disturbing that the Community for Art and Culture doesn't see art as a valuable asset to the community. No, it truly does not value the quality or integrity of the talent in this city. Defining art as "not public" is equal to saying the public does not value art unless we create some theater to shove it down their throats. Pathetic. The city demographic is another issue; working artists ARE a minority. We have grants for women, minorities, public works projects, and for artsy events; what we DON'T have, is a grant for individual artists based on merit. Just living in Cuyahoga County and making art shows incredible dedication and should be rewarded. CAC should give every artist who applies to the grant two tickets to a Browns game and call it a day.

Re: “The Fight Over How Cuyahoga County's Arts Funding is Given to Artists

Brilliant artists and their projects don't necessarily do anything but create stuff that evokes an emotional response. Not every emotional response is a transformation. What if it we considered cat pictures too wasteful a use of bandwidth on the Internet and prohibited sharing them? So what if they don't serve a useful purpose, people like them! That's art! Some people like stuff an artist makes, others don't. Some art changes lives and thinking, others are just weird or entertaining. Furthermore, many artists are NOT good at public relations. We never expected Albert Belle to be a happy-go-lucky community changer, we just wanted him to hit home runs and make the Indians win. It's great to make sure we get funding to a wider diversity of artists, but it's silly to expect everyone to be a Bob Ross or Bono. Not every artist likes the limelight, and not every artist is about changing the world. Some are happy just making people smile, or maybe just tilt their head. Art doesn't have to always have a social message or impact to be useful to the communitysometimes it just looks more interesting than a plain wall or a plain patch of grassand isn't that enough sometimes?

Next up -- asking for a payment plan that can be dragged out 25 years or so.

Re: “Kirtland Police Officer Slams Man's Head Onto Street, According to Video and Lawsuit

Someone show me exactly where he purposely slammed his head to the ground... From what I saw after watching it several times was a person resisting, a legal takedown, more resisting from a conscious person who asked "what did I do" and then him being handcuffed... When did his head hit the ground so violently in a purposeful manner that he nearly lost consciousness?? He seemed alert the entire time from video...
