In the politics of this issue -- one cannot be Pro-Life and Pro-Death.

Re: “Here's What You Missed at Last Night's Packed Forum on Shaker Square's Future

If that movie theatre doesn't upgrade and put in seats like at AMC and Cinemark, it will close. I used to go to the Sq once a month for a movie but not anymore. It's too uncomfortable.

Re: “Here's What You Missed at Last Night's Packed Forum on Shaker Square's Future

It feels like this was just an evening of opinion venting for a demographic that doesn't discuss on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Snap chat. I learned more about the "issues" from this Summer's Shaker Square Connection published in May, than from these "experts".

wow:
"Is there a more accurate word for this behavior than deranged?"

Chuckles:
Yes, there are many to choose from, and most of them describe Agent Orange, the Current Occupant of the Oval Orifice. You can begin with "Trumpian"...if that's actually a word. But the shoe fits.

Re: “Few Winners and Lots of Losers in Rowdy East Side Mayoral Forum

I think the reporter was probably just confused by all the echoes of "Who is you?".

This mayoral election will help decide the future of Cleveland. Either someone will advance the city 'for all' residents, employees and visitors, or we follow the path of Detroit, Ferguson, East Cleveland, Chicago, etc., or we make the so called 'come back'.

There is a lot of racial hatred stemming from Miss Brewer's facebook page. Lots of refetences to we (black folk), slaves, etc. We need a person to help advance all people and not just further enabling the black people- setting them back decades- with racial devide. I would like to see some fresh faces, not faces of those who are living in the past. I hope voters feel the same way. Johnson and Reed haven't done much except collect a paycheck for years. Glad their council seats will go to new people with hopefully fresh ideas. Brewer = East Cleveland- enough said. She does not have the mentality to help people by living, and dragging others, down with her. Is BLM financially supporting her campaign?

Re: “Scene's Ale Fest Rescheduled to Saturday, August 5

I just heard about this. This is crap. I'm furious. I was planning on going here for my bachelor party, and I can't change the date now. Anyone hear anything about a refund? Me and like 10 of my dudes were supposed to go, and we all bought tickets, but we gotta find something else now.

Re: “Pamela Eyerdam

Going to the library downtown is such a treat! Special Collections is one of the best departments in the library. Pam is always a wealth of information, and she's a super cool person to be around. So glad she was included in this list. Congrats Pam!!!

Re: “Few Winners and Lots of Losers in Rowdy East Side Mayoral Forum

I too attended the mayoral forum held on Monday, July 24 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM although it didn't really begin until 6:50 PM with all the mixing and mingling happening among candidates, elected officials and various supporters. Another engagement required me to depart at 8:05 PM but by then I'd heard and seen enough. Pun intended.

First of all, the event could hardly be described as "a raucous barroom brawl" as there was no one hiding under tables or tossing chairs. No fisticuffs were exchanged either. In fact the entire civil event was viewed by me in the last row. Except for a very few people {who just wanted to hear themselves shout} the volume level generally coincided with one's support or opposition for this candidate or that issue. The article so far appears to be everything short of substance and nothing short of hype. Second, it was not a "standing-room-only crowd." There were plenty of chairs for those who chose to sit down. Perhaps standing during an event like this is used to elevate {or perhaps expose} one's personal level of self importance.

As for singling out Eric Brewer for "name-calling and brash tactics" along with "bare-knuckle exchanges" this was simply not the case unless the article is referring to the references {made by Mr. Brewer} to the public performances of other elected officials {both within the law and outside the law}. Most voters would be contended to see this as "fair game" when it comes to local politics all the way up to the national level. The "elevated tension" exhibited by some of the other candidates mentioned appears to be stemming from being intimidated by the truth emanating from Mr. Brewer.

Finally, I take exception with Mr. Allard and Scene Magazine placing themselves above journalistic protocol when it comes to listing "winners" and "losers" of an event that was billed as a "forum" and not a "debate." It's understood that Scene is an alternative weekly but that does not give it license to present such a serious event as a carnival of errors. How about covering the next forum with complete objectivity and then let the voters decide which candidate they support based on the facts presented. I'll be there next time too.

PS: I could comment on the so-called winners/losers section of the article but by now most readers pretty much get the general idea.

Re: “A Forgettable Indian Adventure In Chesterland

Chesterland is roughly in my neck of the woods, and I used a Groupon coupon at Puri on one occasion. It was by far the worst Indian restaurant among the half dozen or so in the Cleveland area that Indian friends and I have patronized. I notice that Puri is again on Groupon- there is a reason that they must solicit business!

Re: “Hits and Misses at Quick-Serve Mofongo Latin Grill

Puerto Rican food is NOT tame and bland. What a sweeping generalization. Yea, this restaurant experience may not have been the greatest, but not worth 'hate speeching' an entire culture's cuisine. Take your white, cracker ass back to the east side, Doug. Your work is laughable, at best

Re: “Ohio Resumes State Executions Without 'Complications'

Bravo to OH. Now if California courts would just get off their ass and start cleaning out the 750+ in San Quentin, we'd be that far ahead of reducing "prison overcrowding," instead of early release for all the violent felons they're doing.

Re: “Fuckton of Butter Used in Ohio State Fair's Butter Sculpture This Year

O.k. I am in an airport on Android bored. Dangerous to write anything on Android phone because as you know it likes to take over. However, I'm really bored so I'm reading, (The Scene) Yup! So, tired of expressions used in their writing: For example, "You know what I mean, you know what I mean." No, I don't, please explain?

I 100% agree with with KevinCLE. I believe this facility would be very successful if it had a leadership team that new how to market it's self. Clearly the person who is running it doesn't know what their doing.
