Re: “A Horrifying Toxic Plant Causing Third-Degree Burns and Blindness May Start Popping Up Near Cleveland

I once found this plant growing in my garden -- just one plant. I quickly realized where it came from. I had purchased a package of inexpensive seeds from a certain discount store, which I won't name.

Did they play "Cruisin'," which was a huge smash on Cleveland radio way back when?

Unforgettable for sure.

Re: “What You Need to Know About Larchmere PorchFest

The crowds for PorchFest X were bigger than ever, by far. Thousands of people came...mostly on foot, making sidewalks extremely crowded and walking your bike impossible. Even riding a bike was tricky, because the streets were packed with so many cars and pedestrians. It's becoming a race with the clock...and an obstacle course.

We rode frantically from one location to another on our bikes, with our chairs on our backs, to get good places to sit. Left each performance early, to beat the crowds and to get good places to...well...you get the idea. But we did manage to hear opera, blues, classical guitar, and smooth jazz. After five hours, we finally got burned out, and we went home.

PorchFest: More popular every year. A victim of its own success, perhaps?
Soon people will be saying: "Nobody goes there anymore...it's too crowded!"

And they might have to change the name of the main drag to Lurchmore Boulevard!.

Re: “American Greetings Apologizes After Backlash Over 'Baby Daddy' Father's Day Card

I have a comment to make about about this matter, but this time I'll keep it to myself. As a conservative, I want to publicly thank Scene Magazine for allowing ALL opinions and viewpoints on their website, unlike the easily offended militants at the Cleveland Plain Dealer who censor comments like mine all the time.

Re: “Here's Where Cleveland Would Have Been on the Pangaea Supercontinent 240 Million Years Ago

Nice blue marble drawing. Looks almost as good as NASA cgi. Everybody already knows the secret about our plane-t. North is in the center. South is not a point but all directions out from the center. The sun, which is inside the dome, circles around the puddle of water we know as earth. Ice is outside of the sun's range. Pangea makes much more sense when laid out in the FEM. You can reference the UN logo.

Re: “'The Divided City' is a Timely, Necessary Book on Concentrated Poverty and Segregation in the Rust Belt

MJK: Fortunately, your political strategy of trolling the Scene comments section behind a screen name without actually engaging with any of the ideas in the article is reaping great dividends. You're making a real difference out there.

Re: “'The Divided City' is a Timely, Necessary Book on Concentrated Poverty and Segregation in the Rust Belt

"the thoughtcrime of citing an author and a book viewed as strictly verboten in left-wing circles. The political left, meanwhile, spellbound by the Dada performance art that bills itself as the Resistance in this absurd age of Trump, staggers drunkenly between a wonky and bloodless urbanism, and an increasingly strident and unhinged leftism."

FFS, Jason.

How old are you?

Do you imagine that you just invented the "both sides suck, we need to transcend their silly bickering and [something something, no actual ideas]" technique of trying to look cool, while simply reinforcing a belief that political disengagement is the only smart response?

You did not. JFC. Please, Scene, you have got to do better than this.

Re: “Ohio Jobs Don't Pay Enough to Cover Rent, But Cleveland is Still Promoted as an Affordable Place to Live

Apprenticeships and training programs have an upper age limit, right? I am well past it, whatever it is. Maybe my son or grandson would qualify, if I had one.

Whatever became of PIANO? It stood for Printing Industry Association of Northeast Ohio, if I remember correctly. About twenty years ago, I wanted to learn enough to be able to apply for a good job in a print shop. Those were skills I really wanted to learn. The idea of becoming a printer (hopefully a union printer) really appealed to me.

There were several things wrong with my plan, as I soon found out. PIANO had closed up and gone away. No more programs and apprenticeships, or even internships. I was already too old to qualify for any of the few programs that still existed. And the worst finding of all was that the printing industry had, for the most part, left Cleveland...for places like Philly, and other towns in the East.

So where did I end up? Making minimum wage...in a bakery. Was I pissed? Damn betcha!

Grizzo65. Try harder. We in the trades are having a hard time filling positions. Apparently you're not trying hard enough.

Re: “What You Need to Know About Larchmere PorchFest

The bands and the porches are spread out...Larchmere is a good-sized neighborhood, and the porches are far enough apart so that the bands won't compete with each other. Dueling banjos on the same street? Bad idea..

So you need to bring your bike. It's the only way to fly. The more quickly you can get from one porch to another, the more music you can enjoy. My wife and I strap our chairs onto our backs, and our bikes allow us to see at least seven or eight bands. Time to go porchin'...
