Re: “Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers Celebrate Their 40th Anniversary with a Rousing Performance at the Q

No one has mentioned, this is not their 40th anniversary, the debut album came out in 1976, just sayin. It was a great show though.

Re: “Terrific Photo Gallery of Lakewood High School's 'Old Building,' Set for Demolition Later This Year

After graduating from LHS in '87, I'd been back a few times since, and these demolition photos bring a tear to my eye. Seeing the doors to the planetarium, I could still hear the spacey music Mr.Komenski would softly play in the background during his explanation of astronomy, room 410,where I had study hall with Miss O'Connell, and the hidden little theatre where the Barnstormers did their enterpritation of Go Ask Alice, that was fantastic! The kids going forward will have a Shiney new building to call home,and that's great,but will not have the experience of friendship,when the word friend was more than checking a box on your Facebook page. R.I.P the typing room, the L-Room,and old building homeroom 312,my homeroom with Mr.Kirschbaum.

Re: “Cavs Unleash Pent-up Offense, Spoil Warriors' Perfection with Record Barrage

Perhaps the craziest chatter surrounding the series was yesterday FOX Sports Radio weekend co-host Rob Parker was verbally swatted down by hoops legend Rick Barry when he criticized LeBron for "The Pass" in Game Three. Parker's act is ridiculously stale -- and he still plays the "victim card" when confronted by a guest for his childish, nonsensical hot takes.

Re: “Zac Brown Band Puts Its Versatility on Display at Blossom

They are truly THE BEST live band for the money out on tour in this day and age! They love their craft and it shows in their music...they can actually SING AND PLAY TO PERFECTION, which you cannot say for a lot of live shows today.

Re: “Mom Files Lawsuit Over Lakewood Library Cop Breaking Her Daughter's Jaw Last Year

She should have left when they asked her to leave. She got a broken jaw and that's justice. He mom never taught her respect for others and that sometimes the answer is no. I blame the rotten mother who raised a brat. The girl for what she deserved.

Re: “We Need a New Spark: Author Dan Egan Urges Action on Great Lakes Health

Environmental stewardship must come from the grassroots -- and will be contingent on the energy that can be generated to continually confront a political climate that cares nothing about the issue.

Re: “Aptly Named All Access Cafe Offers Quick-Serve, Chef-Driven Fare to Rock Hall Visitors

Cheese, cheese and more cheese. I hate cheese. Why must everything have cheese? I learned long ago that when people can't cook, they just pile on the cheese.

I'm sick of wings and food that's tossed in a pile and get wrapped in a tortilla or served as a panini. And get rid of the darn fish sauce. Not everyone appreciates the layer of flavor a bunch of fermented fish heads, tails and skeletons offer. Send the fish sauce back to Southeast Asia. When left out, Thai food is awesome. With it it's just "yuk, what's that awful, rotten aftertaste".

Throw a grilled chicken breast on those menus. Throw a burger with carmelized onions on the menu. Golden brown carmalized onions, not tasteless Vidalia sauted, pale, limp onions.

Rocco. What's wrong with rigatoni with bolognese sauce. Real bolognese sauce without cream! Cheese on the side.

And enough pulled pork. Where's the BBQ brisket slices?

Enough with the foodie menu. You famous "chefs" have pushed your foodie menus on us all over town. We are sick of the same slop wherever we go.

I love your writing, especially your use of colorful adjectives and verbs which make me feel as if I attended this concert too. You are still my favorite writer!

Re: “Taco Bell Cantina on Public Square to Open June 14

Nothing wrong with Taco Hell...I've liked it ever since I had my first burrito at a walk-up window in Albuquerque in '68. Cost a whole quarter. There were no outlets back East then..

The main problem now is that they keep changing the f'king menu about every two weeks. Never really thought of their stuff as food to snarf on after drinking. That was what White Castle was all about. But Millennials won't go there, and hate those great sliders, so now they are hurting nationally.,

Can't go wrong with Taco Hell's burritos or tacos. Used to walk over and eat one...or both...about three times a week when I lived in Florida, and had a younger stomach. Didn't hurt me none...I'm still here...

Re: “A Grieving Father Helped Bring a New Model of Fighting Heroin Addiction to Summit County, and It Might Change Everything

I would
like to offer what knowledge and experience I have come to understand about
addiction. Although I was never exposed to illegal narcotics I too know of
family and friends who were and/or still are today. Back in 1990 {when I
first moved away from home to pursue a Master's in Public Administration at
the University of Akron} I had the occasion to observe a lecture that
completely changed my life. It was a broadcast on WVIZ of John Bradshaw and
his series "On the Family." In essence his message is that children are
shame-based from a early age and retain this internal belief about
themselves throughout their lives. They inherit this from the family
systems that begat their parent, grandparents etcetera in what amounts to
{metaphorically} as the "sins of the fathers passed to the third and fourth
generation." Not only did I watch the entire series but all the rest as
well. The books brought even more clarity.

The theory helps one trace back the sources of their internal shame and
forces them to ask the question: is there really something wrong with me or
did someone just tell me I was {over and over again}. Bradshaw's concept is
not about blame but rather assigning responsibility because your parents and
their parents all fell victim to this self perpetuating system that
accentuates a belief that I am a mistake {shame} instead of I made a mistake
{guilt}. I believe this is one of the root causes for addiction not just to
heroin but as Bradshaw relates "any mood altering experience with life
damaging consequences." Think of the plethora of those that exist today.
In other words heroin is not the only addiction plaguing our society but
rather is a symptom of the sine qua non common denominator to all
addictions; a shame-based belief that there is something fundamentally
flawed about me to the point where I don't like being me so I addict myself
to something so I don't have to be the real me. Ultimately it is through
embracing the pain of being deceived that you will finally set yourself
free. This is difficult but can be done although it is a life-time
commitment. After one finally comes to terms with their own demons can they
truly say "Get behind me, Satan

PS: In the final analysis it all comes down to a person not liking who they
are so they seek an escape {albeit a temporary one} in order to avoid being
who they are. The question before the entire world is this: how do we as a
human race change this self perception in those who seek out
any mood altering experience with life damaging consequences?"

Re: “Empty Euclid Square Mall May Soon Officially Bite the Dust as Developer Eyes Location

Randall, Euclid, Midway, Severance all died before the internet. As someone who had retail stores in malls during the 70's and 80's, these locations died because they weren't deemed safe by the real shoppers- who ended up at Beachwood and Great Northern. Gangs of kids- stolen cars- fights and shooting all led to the demise of $100 million investments. Oh, and let's not forget about the previous incarnation of the Flats.

Re: “Yahoo's Katie Couric in Town for 'Cities Rising,' Tours West Side Market

Somebody piss in your cornflakes, Abe? Why the hate? You spout off just as much as I do, in bigger blocks of type. Ever heard of paragraphs? First thing they taught us in J-school.

Hey, I have so much free time, I perused your profile...ya know what? You rant just as much as I do, only without stopping for breath...probably more keystrokes in your four dozen comments, Abe, than in my 900+. Whose fault is it that you came late to the party?

Guilty as charged, Abe. I do spend too much time here. But hey, I'm retired...and I don't care for fishing or golf. Gotta do something. So I type. So hey, sue me.

As for spending what little time I have left in the comments sections of every local town publication I can find , you're confusing me with some other pontificator. Never assume...just makes an ass out of U and ME. Mostly U. You probably have me confused with Roldo Bartimole.

Opinions are like assholes. Everybody has one. But only some of us are one. Or talk through one.

Hey, Tribe and Cubs again? Ya think? It's early yet. We'll know more by August. Toodles!
