Re: “If Cleveland Had a Bigger, Better Metro Railway, This is What it Might Look Like

Lee, you are probably well aware of the sad fact that the department stores fled to the suburbs because downtown emptied out for far more complex reasons than the lack of a subway. They were casualties of the Great Migration from the South in the Forties and Fifties (and even earlier, to some extent)...which was followed by the inevitable White Flight.

Same thing happened in other, bigger cities. The only difference is that those cities (like New York and Chicago, just to name two) built up their electrified transit systems much earlier, between 1890 and 1930...before the Depression brought almost all such construction to a halt.

Re: “If Cleveland Had a Bigger, Better Metro Railway, This is What it Might Look Like

I plan to copy and enlarge this map and it will go on my wall, next to eerily similar maps of Real Life systems like NYC, Chicago, Boston and London. As a native of Chicago, I have been into electric transit (elevated, subway, and surface...streetcars and trolley buses) for most of my life. People like me are called juicers or juiceheads by other railfans, for obvious reasons.

Before I comment further, I would like to know how much of the CMFR (Cleveland Metropolitan Fantasy Railway) is elevated, how much is subway, how much is ground-level or open-cut Rapid, and what lines have street running...light-rail on tracks or trackless trolley buses. I immediately noticed that the Green and Blue lines are incorporated into the CMFR, but not the West Side portion of the existing Red Line...is there a reason for this omission?

I will have more to add upon further review, and I also plan to compare this map with the Real Life map of the proposed streetcar-subway system that the old CTS wanted to implement immediately after WWII, when they upgraded their streetcar system with PCC-type vehicles and announced plans for a subway system. A system that was eventually scaled back to trolley buses, motor buses, and what became our Rapid in the Fifties. And freeways, of course. Lots and lots of pavement, for lots and lots of newer and bigger cars.

Later, gator...

I was going to buy these tickets for my husband for Valentine's Day but they sold out so quickly! Does anyone have 2 extras they'd be willing to sell?

Re: “This Looks Like the Definitive Cleveland RNC Documentary

From what I just watched, it looks like it was very well-made, but like most trailers, this one shows as much conflict, physical or otherwise, as possible. Just like action films (and other genres) highlight every violent scene possible, so does this one.

I spent a good deal of time in Public Square during those four days in July, and expected the worst, including gunfire and mass casualties and multiple deaths. But there was remarkably little actual violence. Downtown was locked down for the most part. and the physical and implied/unseen presence of heavy security (including National Guardsmen billeted at Case Western) kept the craziest of the crazies away. Most of the confrontations were verbal...there was a lot of mouth music but very little chin music.

Gotta wonder if I'm in any crowd scenes, and am looking forward to possibly spotting myself. I was in Chicago in '68 and ended up in Haskell Wexler's "Medium Cool"...at least the back of me did. It was hard to miss that blue-and-white McCarthy sticker on the back of my jacket during the riots cenes in grant PArk.

Re: “Two Suspected Overdoses, Four Assaults on Officers in Last Week at Cuyahoga County Jail

I find it Ironic that Associate Warden Eric Ivey or Regional Director Ken Mills have been ducking the media. I understand that Mils will finally be making a statement to the media. It's going to be interesting to hear his spin on life safety of his officers and the custodial care and safety of the inmates. The double pod practice has always been a dangerous practice and method of cutting cost. Let's see what he says.

Armond Budish and his staff - along with every county council member - need to start taking work shifts inside this joint. After a few days, maybe - maybe - they will wake up and realize this powder keg is ready to explode.

A system like this could eliminate many busses.

Trump's going to implement the Albert Porter freeway plan instead.

OK, I 'm nuts. They're only $30! Perhaps I was looking at a different city.

Re: “Tickets for Donut Fest on Sale January 19 at Noon

Disappointing to see that tickets are actually $35, and, with a handling fee and processing fee, come out to more than $40/ticket. Sure, it's a small difference, but that adds up when you are purchasing several tickets.

Awesome stuff. Great respect for their passion for paying a living wage and staying authentic. I hope to see this continue as they expand.

Re: “If Cleveland Had a Bigger, Better Metro Railway, This is What it Might Look Like

That is awesome. Three suggestions at first glance:
~* Have the western terminus of the "E" line extend to the Clague and Westlake P&R
~* Somehow work in the North Olmsted P&R with either the "D" or "E" lines
~* Extend the eastern terminus of the "A" line out to the Euclid P&R

Re: “An Akron Man Set Himself on Fire After Yelling About Donald Trump: UPDATE

There has been a longstanding policy of mainstream media not to cover these kinds of politically motivated suicides.
There have been many political suicides in recent years, and many of those have lit themselves on fire in a public place, some people protesting against global corporatization, Wall St. corruption and the banking system, against state terrorism (quaintly referred to by mainstream media as ``the war on terror``), against some of Barak Obama`s policies and against UN policies, some have had thousands of witnesses and local media, independent media coverage, etc, but mainstream outlets have an ``ethical`` position against publicizing politically motivated suicides.

But this one is about Trump, so the message is allowed to make it through. Very telling.

Re: “Here's Cleveland at Night as Seen From the International Space Station

You can clearly make out the City of Detroit, embedded within the surrounding suburbs and metro area, as it looks silvery instead of yellow.

Gotta be the Detroit street lighting...they apparently still have the older, less intrusive, and less harsh mercury vapor lights, instead of the sodium vapor lights that everybody else has received over the last forty-plus years.

Chicago got them in the mid-70s, and Cleveland got theirs in the mid-Nineties, and nothing has looked the same ever since.
