Re: “Worker-Owned Green City Growers is On the Path to Profits While Giving Refugees and Ex-Cons Gainful Employment

"On the current roster are people with nonviolent criminal records and immigrants from Bhutan, Africa, Guatemala and the Democratic Republic of the Congo."

Africa is a continent, not a country, and DRC is a country within the African continent. Come on.

Green City Greens are also sold at the West Side Market. First stall on the right off W. 25th St. Always very friendly and the greens are first rate.

Re: “Patti Smith and Her Band Tap Into Rock’s Revolutionary Spirit During Rousing Show at the State Theatre

Patti Smith is one of very few artists whose entire discography is powerfully essential: "In art and dream may you proceed with abandon. In life may you proceed with balance and stealth."

Re: “The Mandel Jewish Community Center in Beachwood Received Another Bomb Threat Today

I am so tired of these fucking cowards. If you hate someone that much then have the courage to come out in public and fight them, but you people who call in bomb threats are nothing but loathsome, revolting, sniveling little cowards.

Patti Smith is totally amazing. I adore her. I'm so glad I was at the concert last night. All I want to do now is listen to Horses.

Re: “Ruth's Chris Steak House to Open in 200 Public Square Building on March 13

O/U on a place like Ruth's Chris is at least 10 years. It may be a chain, but it's not Applebee's. It's a 4-5 star restaurant. Don't get me wrong, XO and (especially) Red are great, but so is Ruth's Chris. It's prime location right off the revitalized square will provide major foot traffic with lower saturation than, say, E. 4th. It will do very well.

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

Couldn't this same article be essentially written about every company that does business in Ohio? I mean, I could take those exact same maps, cross "AT&T" out of the title and put in anyone. Go ahead, you try it. "TGI Friday's" "Best Buy", whatever. You invest where your customers are at and where they are going. Is the next article going to be about residents of South Russell being discriminated against in the same-day loan market? Probably not, because Pay Day Advance doesn't think there's a market for their 34% loans. Not only is it more expensive for AT&T (and others) to build out hard-line infrastructure in these red neighborhoods, we're talking about places where the city's are getting federal money to TEAR DOWN HOUSES! It's certainly not a race issue. I guess it's a poverty issue, but only in the fact that the company doesn't see a market for premium broadband services in poverty-striken neighborhoods. And just because they were blackmailed into offering some $5/month deal doesn't mean they're going to be excited about spending billions to build it out. Get a 4G hotspot. Yes you pay for data, but you're on-par with the price of wired services in the 'burbs.

The opinion expressed above is one I think I'd apply generally to just about every private company. Specific to AT&T: they are one of the shittiest companies I've ever dealt with, and they can disappear any time and we'd all be better off. Incompetent support, incompetent techs, and just a general disorganization on a massive, corporate-wide scale. Just awful in so many ways.

Re: “Groundbreaking Underway on East Side Market in Glenville, Neighborhood's First New Grocery Store in a Decade

It has been four difficult years to fight through a disinterested Cleveland City Hall that did all it could to ignore and derail the New Eastside Market project. When I started the effort in 2013 to bring back to Glenville, and other nearby neighborhoods, a full service grocery store, I was disappointed with the lack of enthusiasm from city leaders that was different than how they react to downtown projects.

With the involvement of Councilmen Kevin Conwell and Mike Polensek, beginning in 2014, we united to get the project funded by the state government and private financing.

Why is it so hard to do development in neighborhoods not located downtown? It is unfair and misguided to have double standards in the use of our public investment funds.

Congratulations to NEON, and its team, who kept the faith while working with us as we moved the project through City Hall. It is because of this local public-private partnership that the New Eastside Market development has begun and continues on schedule for a fall opening. -- Jeff Johnson, Councilman

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

George Forbes will be remembered as arguably the most polarizing and powerful Cleveland city council president in history. But one thing is certain -- AT&T would not have been permitted to build a digital redlining wall under his watch.

MUK - Since when you liberals care about following laws (immigration)?

If someone can prove they broke a law, go for it. Otherwise, it's business as usual.
