Re: “Amanda Berry Joins Fox 8 News to Help with New Missing Persons Segment

@Kathy...yeah, let's step it up for missing persons, but the way to do this is by demanding the CPD actively investigate their cases.

Not to turn the victims into sideshow performers.

Re: “Amanda Berry Joins Fox 8 News to Help with New Missing Persons Segment

Only a monster would wish harm to any of Castro's victims. It is possible for reasonable people to perceive harm in publicly exploiting Ms. Berry.

Seems pretty self-evident to me that allowing these women privacy is essential to their well-being, so I condemn a major media outlet persuading Ms. Berry to undermine her own best interests in the race for profits.

Re: “Amanda Berry Joins Fox 8 News to Help with New Missing Persons Segment

Natalie Holloway's mother has a missing person tv series. John Walsh became a celebrity spokesmodel on America's Most Wanted because his 6 year old son was kidnapped and murdered. Etc.

These people are notorious victims of especially infamous crimes, and they are popular because of the public's appetite for voyeurism cannot be satisfied. Is it morally reprehensible? Yeah.....usually. These "famous victims" rarely choose these roles freely and with full appreciation for the permanent loss of dignity and privacy they entail.

I am not best pleased to hear this news, and I worry about whether it best serves the interests of Ms. Berry and her child to keep her in the public eye.

It's not hard to imagine the Fox 8 management could care less, as long as they make money off her continuing exploitation.

Re: “City Agrees to $2.25-Million Settlement with Family of Tanisha Anderson

This family watched the cops kill their mentally ill daughter, and were helpless to protect her. There isn't enough money on the planet to compensate for this horrific event.

$16 million in wrongful death settlements paid, but no murdering cops in prison. How can this possibly be justice?

Re: “Darrell Scott's Cleveland Heights Church Backed Out of the Funeral for 14-Year-Old Alianna DeFreeze

I wonder if the real problem is the pastor is a Trump supporter, and this funeral will not "strike the right tone"?

Who in their right mind, that has any appreciation for coffee would be thrilled to see a Starbucks Reserve Bar? We have so many better coffee options in Cleveland that this will be able to provide.

Re: “Michael Symon's 'The Chew' Hammered by Critics

i love the show. i think mentioning "the view" as being an example of an entertaining show is false. all they do on that show is talk over each other and criticize some of their guests. "the view" is not a show to copy.

i think the people on "the chew" are much more friendly (all of them), particularly michael symon. i'm a Cleveland girl and we just can't do without michael or "the chew" show. the recipes are great. i'm getting ready to try the phyllo spinach pie. my grandchildren love this recipe.

Re: “The Joys and Flavors of Ethiopian Cuisine Are on Full Display at Zoma

You mention the Empress Taytu, but it's a shame you didn't do a comparative review of it with Zoma. Or indeed, never do, between any two restaurants.

Re: “Scene Announces Winners in #RedesigntheTribe Contest

Lou, Lou, LOU...why would I want to use an NHL team's name and call them the Cleveland Blackhawks? What I DID suggest was doing something similar to that team's LOGO...the best one in professional sports. Use your imagination.

I am no graphic artist or graphic designer. Go find one of your own. Try my ex-wife. She's good. She's still in Chicago.

But you know what, Lou? You've got spunk. I HATE spunk!

Re: “Darrell Scott's Cleveland Heights Church Backed Out of the Funeral for 14-Year-Old Alianna DeFreeze

How pathetic, the new spirit revival center was more concerned about money than accommodate this family under such tragic condition. One would think they could have called other churches to ask for help with staffing concerns. Maybe they don't have the money to keep their church going and saw this as a windfall.

Thank God for the Imani Temple and other churches to offer to have the services free of charge, not worrying about staffing or getting the hiccups.

The fine print for New Spirit Revival Center must include -- We share in your sadness and would be honored to arrange your funeral.....how much money you got?
