Re: “LEGO Batman Movie Falls to Pieces

Well to me, I thought lego batman was a good movie and maybe we should focus on the positive stuff?

Re: “Someone Replaced Franklin Boulevard Speed Limit Signs, City Takes Them All Down

In my experience, people far more often drive 20-25 mph on Franklin than over 35. It's annoying and you can't safely pass between intersections.

Re: “Plain Dealer Right Winger Kevin O'Brien is Taking a Buyout

"Forceful writer" in the way you have to force a shit when you don't really have to go? It would definitely take some force to consistently champion political causes that go against the grain of common sense. I always thought he was under pressure to provide the conservative voice, and wondered if he could really think some of the things he claims to. I'm sure he believes what he writes, but I'm almost certain it had more to do with retaining conservative readership than adding any thoughtfulness to the discourse. I've only agreed with Kevin maybe three times in several years (he had a great idea about colleges collecting a percentage of future income. That way your degree costs you relative to what it earns you, which would discourage colleges from offering basket weaving degrees by making them have a little skin in the game). So if Kevin happens to read these comments, I want to say I wish you well, Kevin. Ted Diadiun is half the Limbaugh wannabe you wannabee. ;)

Scathingly perfect.

Yes, Diadiun has inherited the mantle of 'equal time' for idiots.

Being a 'sports guy' has prepared him well. The comments section is saved.

Re: “Plain Dealer Right Winger Kevin O'Brien is Taking a Buyout

O'Brien tried for years to screech his way out of the print media and into the warm embrace of a national cable-news outlet....and failed miserably. Special Ted is too stupid to realize that he is also stuck yelping at the local level for the daily advertising tab.

Re: “That "Tiny House Experiment" in Detroit Shoreway Pretty Much Failed

These houses need to sell at a much lower price and profit margin to the owner! I 'm sure many people would like to own and live in these homes but at a reasonable lower price as it should be!

Re: “A Brave Never Tells

Today I was reminiscing about my time in Boy Scouts, of course my mind immediately went to the pipestone ceremony at Algonkin/ 7 Ranges. After a google search I stumbled upon this article and felt the need to share my experience. I am a 5th year pipestone holder, Eagle Scout, college graduate, and proudly hold a career as a Firefighter/Paramedic. My father is also an Eagle Scout and 5th year pipestone holder who attended camp Tuscazor in the late 60s.

This is definitely the first time I've ever heard any accusations of physical or sexual abouse surrounding the pipestone program. I am 8 years removed from scouting but have had friends stay active from youth to current leadership. Some have even returned to volunteer in the pipestone program at 7R.

I'm quite dumbfounded by some of these accusations. If anyone involved in the Ceremony as an officiate or candidate ever whinessed abuse of any kind, I assure you it would have been reported and followed up on to assure whatever happened was dealt with accordingly though the counsel, BSA or Law enforcement as nessesary. It's quite obvious to see that people are looking for a scandal and want to find something horrendous. Just look at the "likes and dislikes" above each comment.

As a child I had ADD so you could imagine my fidgeting would have gotten me "corrected" or "roughly handled" as the author and other commenters state. However I can recall no such actions toward me or any other participants. At no time was I concerned for my safety or the safety of my peers, and given my current career, I'm familiar with potential hazards or injury to others. It was meerly a performance much less traumatizing than a Halloween "haunted house" with native Americans instead of ghosts and zombies. I can also assure you that the running/ walking trails of the woods are kept clear. I personally recall removing tree roots or rocks from the trail during OA service projects.
All I can say about the 4th year ceremony, is the Chief's speech was quite vague and preached the importance of "a scout is morraly straight" which is in the scout oath. No hate speech.

I apologize for the lengthy comment but feel it necessary to defend my personal experiences with the pipestone program at 7R. Perhaps there have been other incidents which have gone unreported or brushed under the rug but I personally have never herd or experienced anything of the like. I would encourage my own son or others involved in scouting to participate in the program as it truly helped mold me and guid me towards my goal as an Eagle Sout.

Re: “GCC Takes Q Deal Opposition to Dan Gilbert's Doorstep in Detroit

Dan Gilbert has countless boxes of Anderson Varejao wigs and other unsold basketball souvenirs.....perhaps donating the junk for a tax write-off - I mean, perhaps giving away the rare and valuable fan favorites to community centers will demonstrate to evil naysayers his incredible and heartfelt commitment to the neighborhoods and children in the city of Cleveland.

Re: “Cleveland Mayoral Candidate Brandon Chrostowski Says He's Called to Lead

"Chrostowski said he has voted for both Senator Rob Portman whom hes grown weary of being told he resembles"

So, we can thank Chrostowski for helping place Betsy DeVos in charge of the Department of Education. And for the funneling of public education resources into unaccountable charter-school scams which she will deliver.

With judgment like that, why not just keep Frank Jackson?

Re: “Our Favorite Dumb Bad Yelp Reviews of Cleveland Restaurants

I think you need to look up the definition of good. You may shock yourself on a simple refresher. Any reader would understand the word good...verses fabulous, delicious, a new favorite and must return...etc., but good means just what it relates. Very good meaning above and beyond. We learn these words early. I'm surprised you have not learned them and find them elementary because their use is basic and full of information. Lincoln'St Gettysburg address was made up of simple uncomplicated words and is heralded as one of the greatest speeches of all time. As my Harvard English Prof once explained, "All words are good words when used in the proper context." Did you miss this in school? These words good, fair and bad should flag an intelligent person. "If you prefer, we could write: "The French Onion Soup was good, not fabulous, a bit salty for my tastes, and the prep chef didn't dice the onions correctly, the cheese seemed a tad old and was probably melted in a microwave because the top was not that perfect brown caramelized color. In addition, the bread was at the bottom of the bowl instead of the top...hmmm what does this mean? Why hide the bread? Very unconventional!" Now, I travel and I Yelp. I use Yelp and other sites to find what I desire. Every city has its lingo. Obnoxious or not. I'm not from Cleveland, but I've learned there's a nasty underside and a good above board side. For the most part, it's blue collar. Even the educated ones are probably from a blue collar background and education doesn't take that color off your collar. So, there you have a critical review of your review as a whole...and possibly yourself as well. You article seemed extremely blue.
