Re: “Husband and Father of Four Deported From Cleveland, Despite Community Efforts

So stay with me for a second. 117 people each day are killed in automobile accidents. Many if not most of these involve vehicles moving at excessive speeds. This isn't even counting damage and injuries that must occur daily due to people driving above the speed limit. It is against the law to speed in every state. It is safe to say this is a crime that effects all of us. It certainly harms far more people than illegal immigration does on a daily basis.
We have the means to enforce these laws, cars engines can be capped at certain speeds for example or further widespread police enforcement could be enacted. Strangely nobody cries out against speeding, something that is far more likely to effect them and the ones they love. Why is that? Why isn't everyone shouting about enforcing those laws? Those laws would make their neighborhoods much safer.
It couldn't be that people only want to see laws enforced that they themselves don't break... no that couldn't be it. It certainly wouldn't be because immigration laws target a small subset of people (who generally happen to have darker skin), no that can't be it. I'm sure all these people are purely motivated about upholding laws and aren't just driven by fear and hate.
For real horror stories of illegal immigration you'd have to go and talk to the Native Americans....

I have been a friend of Jerry (known in PA as Jerry DJ) since we were not more than teens. He truly is a class act that will be forever missed. Fly high, Jerry.

And Happy Birthday in Heaven. Love ya!

Re: “Husband and Father of Four Deported From Cleveland, Despite Community Efforts

"His children, who are Americans, will have to go through life without a father." Why? They can move to Mexico with him. If America is so evil for enforcing its laws, they can cross illegally into Mexico to see their father and see how well that works out for them. Or they can all illegally go into Canada. Or Nicaragua. Or Panama. Or Costa Rica. Or Chile. Or Brazil. Or Argentina. Or Colombia. Or Peru...etc.

Re: “At the All-Star break, a Conversation With Jason Kipnis on the Team's Struggles, His Struggles, and How They Can Get Back to the World Series

I agree about St. Louis being a hot baseball town. It was just one example. We're still 26th. though. I agree that Cleveland is a bandwagon town. This is an exciting team that made it to the World Series and is in 1st place. I would love to see higher attendance. I agree that people can watch on television, but they can do that in any city. I don't think the St. Louis economy is bustling all that hard. In St. Louis, people also have living expenses. But again, we're 26th. Our ranking has barely increased after making the World Series. Indians games are some cheap ass entertainment. I guess not compared to sitting at home, but as far as going out and paying for something, it's pretty cheap.

District tickets are always $13 and upper deck tickets are often $13 or sometimes less. District tickets come with $4 loaded value. Tickets can be found online even cheaper for the less desired games like on weeknights.

I don't see why you need to buy merchandise to go to an Indians game. I would guess the majority of the people that attend games do not buy merchandise every game.

One can bring any food they want into a game and even a bottle of water. You don't really have to drink beer, but if you really need to get your alcohol on to enjoy yourself, there are ways to get it in if you use your head a little bit.

Parking is among the cheapest I have seen. I have been to 20+ ballparks. There are shuttles from places like Great Lakes Brewery and $5 parking is easy to score, and even cheaper parking than that can be found.

In my opinion, like you said, Clevelanders are bandwagoners, and that is the issue. I don't buy the excuses. The Indians bend over backwards to try to accommodate all of the ridiculous excuses. Currently, the not spending money and bad team excuses don't work. It's not expensive to go to an Indians game. No one has money for games, but the more expensive playoff games always sell out. Hmm...

Re: “Horse Collapses Downtown, Igniting Renewed Fury Over Horse-Drawn Carriages in Cleveland

It's alright for horses to have jobs and do work, they have done that for centuries. The problem is being mistreated by their owners. This is a horrible story and if that poor horse is being "retired" someone should have the opportunity to adopt him so that he can live out the rest of his years in a pasture. Otherwise he will go Sugar Creek and the slaughterhouse. That will be his reward for his years of hard work.

Re: “Horse Collapses Downtown, Igniting Renewed Fury Over Horse-Drawn Carriages in Cleveland

Who the hell are their customers? Drunken Millennial bros and their arm candy in the Flats? Yupster tourists who want to look cool? Hipsters who want a "romantic" vehicle in which to give their future brides a ring with a big shiny rock?

Horses have to suffer unspeakable cruelty and inhumane conditions...for THESE entitled pieces of shit?

How many people reading this thread are longtime residents of Cleveland...or lifers, born and raised in this city? Fess up...WHEN was the last time YOU rode in a horse-drawn carriage?

In my 25 years here, I have NEVER, not once, ridden in one of them. Never felt the need or the desire. And not once in all the decades before that, when I lived in Chicago, did I want to do so.. And I don't feel deprived, or think I have missed much. Riding in one will never be on my bucket list.

Other cities have banned these carriages. New York and Chicago have put heavy restrictions on their routes, and strictly monitor the care of these animals. For all I know, they don't even allow them in NYC or Chicago anymore...I don't get to either city all that much.

Who the hell allowed them to travel up one of the steepest streets in town? WTF? Horrible. Inexcusable.

Frankly, I don't even see the need for such conveyances...not when it condemns these creatures to utter misery so that a few elitist assholes can have a thrill.

Get rid of them. Now.

And after you are done reading my pissed-off rant, do something positive...sign the petition.

p,s, I will think twice about ever having a shandy on the patio at the Treehouse again.
Thanks for the heads-up.

Thank you for circulating this piece.
My wife and I saw this man while traveling in the Middle East. First at Karak Castle where our tour guide joked that he was the ghost of a crusader. We then saw him again at Petra climbing on the temple.

Re: “Cleveland Chain Reaction Narrows Search to 10 Slavic Village Finalists

I'm so proud of this project and all of our great partners who are making it happen. This is an urban development machine like no other! While most projects like this would still be doing feasibility studies, we are going from zero to a million in 9 short months! You'll see it all culminating this year in Slavic Village. COSE, Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, Fox8, Kenny Crumpton, Cleveland Foundation, the City of Cleveland, the Slavic Village CDC-----all joined together and are making it happen! It's really exhilarating! Maybe we should do it again???

Re: “Horse Collapses Downtown, Igniting Renewed Fury Over Horse-Drawn Carriages in Cleveland

If this horse is being 'retired' that is the carriage euphemism for going to auction. He will no doubt head to Sugar Creek - a notorious kill buyer auction. If that owner thinks this 'job' is so easy...he should have to pull a carriage full of humans in roller skates up and down that hill....

Sounds like he had metal shoes on the horse (SLIPPERY) and the carriage was overloaded.

Someone needs to be aware this horse is going to auction to really give him a good home an d not a one way ticket to Canada for slaughter.

Re: “At the All-Star break, a Conversation With Jason Kipnis on the Team's Struggles, His Struggles, and How They Can Get Back to the World Series

It may be a smaller market, but it's been the hottest baseball town in the country for a long, long time...and consistently outdraws much larger cities in the Midwest and on both coasts.

Cleveland's problems are many...it's a bandwagon town...people don't jump on board unless the Tribe is a consistent winner. Some people still haven't gotten the message that downtown is no longer an urban jungle, and are afraid to leave their suburban couches.

And then there's the local economy...some people just can't afford to go in person anymore,because they need to do other things...like pay for food, gas, utilities, medicine, and rent. Others are just priced out...tickets and parking and food and beer and merch really add up fast...and watching on cable is cheaper and more comfortable.

Cleveland and St. Louis are like apples and oranges...they are both fruit and both round...but then the comparison stops.
