Re: “Cleveland is Great at Talking About its Waterfront

It's probably too late for Cleveland. Chicago started planning its waterfront over a century ago. It too has made some mistakes (McCormick Place, the thing on top of Soldier Field), but by and large, it has reserved the waterfront for recreation. Cleveland has not. This discussion should have happened before the Rock Hall and Science Center were built, definitely before the ugliest building in Cleveland, the stadium, was built to be used only a handful of times a year. When talk starts about tearing down the stadium, then maybe we'll have a "Lakefront Plan." Otherwise that ship
has sailed.

Re: “John Kasich Doesn't Read Ohio Newspapers

And yet today he said he learned about something by reading an article in the Columbus Dispatch. So maybe he thinks the Dispatch is published in Columbus, Georgia. Or something.

Re: “Conservative Group Rates Ohio's State Reps, Looks for 'Defenders of Liberty'

Mike Dovilla is a tool, easily the most worthless legislator from Northeast Ohio.

Re: “Issues With Issue 3

Actually, there's nothing 'intellectually vacuous" about this. The law does not mention any specific health-care systems or "reporting systems" that people cannot be compelled to participate in, which is why it's likely to spawn so much litigation if passed. It basically forbids the state from making ANY changes to ANY aspect of health care after the date the federal Affordable Care Act passed. That potentially includes workers' comp, information technology systems, immunization requirements, courts ordering divorced parents to pay for children's health coverage, reporting of new epidemic outbreaks and, yes, abortion. It's virtually certain all will be impacted, and it's certain abortion will be challenged. This law goes way way way beyond preventing people from being compelled to purchase health insurance. Its awful wording rejects all changes to health-care delivery following March 19, 2010. That includes new abortion bills.
