Re: “City of Cleveland to Hire Outside Consultant to Examine Changes and Improvements at West Side Market

Vendors at the West Side Market have to make a $2,000 a month payment because of the new parking lot. None of the bars or restaurants pay anything.

Re: “Heritage Not Hate: Kent State Gun Girl Accidentally Exposes Racism and Partisan Vapidity of Chief Wahoo Support

I was in South Dakota, and I explicitly asked some Native Americans that I was with about this issue. One said that they liked it, and they themselves on a baseball cap with Chief Wahoo. The other could care less, indicating the Native Americans have so much bigger problems than that. Personally, I'm of Greek descent, and when I see a Spartan, or a Trojan, or any other depiction of a Greek, even as cartoonish as Sparty the Spartan, I kind of like it.

Lighten up.
I think perfect solution would be to have 3 Native American designers come up with another mascot, and let the fans vote on it.

Re: “Dennis Kucinich Finds Fracking Facts in Southeast Ohio: A Horror Story

I have to say - I am left-leaning Democrat, but there was A LOT of crap in this.
"your eyes will likely have begun to itch"
"The air in the van had become not only warm, but thick."
"But one can't drive through these blighted, sparsely populated Ohio counties without sadness and anger and an immediate desire to escape."
Statements like that make the writer look ridiculous.
This article could have been worthwhile, but the editorializing and imagination-as-fact statements were a little much.

Re: “Radiohead and Rage Against the Machine Lead the List of Rock Hall Nominees for the Class of 2018

I love both of these bands, but in reality, they would be stepping over acts that should have gotten in long ago...
I won't give you my entire list, but once you include Sister Rosetta Tharpe, that only leaves four more spaces, look at the list.

Re: “Brandon Chrostowski of EDWINS Announces Run for Mayor

It's good to see someone who isn't a career politician, but who has ideas, run for the office. I don't think Frank Jackson is a bad guy, but he is a career politician.
