Re: “AT&T Has Historically Excluded Cleveland's Poorest Neighborhoods From Its Internet Access Improvements

Looking at the map, there are nicer areas within Cleveland that still have slower internet from AT&T. Areas where homes are maintained and minimal risk of equipment being stolen. The lack of any alternatives in the city, for residential internet, is terrible. AT&T or Time Warner ..... the end.

Re: “Now Open: El Puente Viejo Taco and Tequila Bar

In town for our anniversary. What a great find. The food was so fresh and tasty. Also if you want a great margarita made with unbelievable tequila than you found your spot. The wait staff was so kind and the owner was great as well. I hope this spot is still here when I return. The location is great. Thank you Cleveland. I fell in love with your city.
Don't forget to order the churo. Totally sinful.

Click through and read the report, Mr. Wilson and people upvoting him.

"the new law also prohibited economic or racial discrimination: '[N]o video service provider shall deny access to video service to any group of potential residential subscribers in its video service area because of the race or income of the residents in the local area in which the group resides.'

This is, actually, Ohio law.

Re: “AT&T Has Historically Excluded Cleveland's Poorest Neighborhoods From Its Internet Access Improvements

This is liberal race-baiting nonsense. Companies don't invest in areas where there equipment is going to get destroyed and they aren't going to have subscribers or make money. That's why there are few brick and mortar businesses in those areas. Besides that point, they can easily get cell phones with 4G internet and many of the people in those areas probably have them.

His 2004 solo album - "Asshole" - is such a comedic mess.....that it actually starts making sense after repeated listens.

Re: “AT&T Has Historically Excluded Cleveland's Poorest Neighborhoods From Its Internet Access Improvements

So, at&t basically responded with "mrrph blvvvr lrrrrrrg," to borrow a phrase from The Intercept. Their PR flak offered absolutely no substantive response to any of the points made by this study.

Re: “AT&T Has Historically Excluded Cleveland's Poorest Neighborhoods From Its Internet Access Improvements

Not surprising. I lived near Shaker Square in 2010 (and near west side since) and tried to get AT&T. They installed it and the service was awful. TV and internet froze consistently. I just gave up. The lack of competition for cable/internet services in the city is a joke.

Re: “Ohio is Rolling Out More Rules on Medical Marijuana Law

I say just make it recreational. I'm sure the medical Marijuana is better for everyon . But I know somehow you guys found away to get some kind of medicine in it. I refuse to try it. Not even the vases. I am allergic to everything medicine that has been given to me for my health reasons. I refuse the cannabis I'm sorry. Just personal for me. So I'd rather grow my own Reggie. This way I know what's in it. And I don't want to chance my life with is. My everyday life is scary enough. Knowing that a simple migraine can kill me. No thanks. Just please make it 150% everything Marijuana legal. Counting recreational. And I need my medicin . And I can not afford anyone that won't help make it legal. This is my life. Not anyone else's. And I have 2 young kids that could end up loosing their mom at a young age. Just waiting till the day I can grow my own. And have no worries or daily struggles. Like missing out on my kids growing up BC I'm stuck on a couch or bed. And so many could benefit from this. But BC 1 person don't like it. We have to please them once again. Well this time. Try to male it for the ppl that could get the help they need from it. We can not please everyone. If u don't believe me. Then pick a day that everyone u expect to be their. I bet u not everyone will make it. So let's make this happen and work already. I need this just as much as many of others that can as well. So can we pull this off and make it legal ASAP. THANKS

Re: “Loganberry Books Shelves Men's Books Backwards as a 'Metaphor of Silencing the Male Voice'

Personally I've been listening to a cacophony of male voices for 60 years and I'm damned sick and tired of it. The male voices coming form Washington DC recently have been especially loathsome.

You go Loganberry!

Re: “Cleveland Clinic CEO Toby Cosgrove is 'Concerned' About New Health Care Bill

Well, ol' Toby has a VIP pass into the White House through his spot on the President's Strategic and Policy Forum. Let's see if he has the guts to challenge The Don on this ill-conceived monstrosity masquerading as a practical piece of legislation....since the intoxication of being a major player inside The Beltway often means keeping one's mouth firmly shut for a wide and greasy smile.

@Blah blah: The man was attending a city council meeting in the city where he LIVES. The fact that he's a comedian is irrelevant.
