Re: “Is Hopkins Reducing Staffing Because It's Running Out of Money?

They should definitely close Burke. It's essentially a flight school and sports team airport - a luxury a cash-strapped city can't afford.

Re: “Fox 8's Mark Zinni Is Leaving Cleveland

I suppose it matters to anyone if they can't marry the person they want to by virtue of the state in which they live. :( Not 100% sure that's the case here, but I'd bet a fairly pricey lunch on it. New England is pretty receptive to the notion - legal in every NE state.

Re: “Fox 8's Mark Zinni Is Leaving Cleveland

That's too bad. I thought he was a great foil on the weekend for the trio of Wayne, Stef and Kristy. Just goofy enough to be a contrast, but very likable. I'm guessing if gay marriage were allowed in Ohio, he and Garith stay. What a backwards frigging state we have here. Best of luck to you Mark Z.

Re: “Former Tribe Pitcher Throws the Greatest Eephus Pitch, Somehow Doesn't Get Strike Call

Agreed, gadgetking. It doesn't matter where the catcher's glove appears to catch it - all that matters is where the ball was when it crossed the plate. It looked high - above the letters, maybe even above his head as it passed the plate. They should've shown a replay from the side angle - which would show it pretty certainly whether it was above or in the strike zone (the camera angle from the start of the clip).

Re: “Chicago Delivers Epic Set at Hard Rock Live

They are, almost quite literally, two bands from two different eras. The first being from Terry Kath's early days and influence, and the second from that point forward after he died. I'd think it would be difficult for them to meld the two together into one show - and appease fans from both eras. Personally, I'd have no use listening to much of the Cetera-inspired stuff after about VI or VII, but I understand they have legions of fans of the later ballads (probably more than those who loved them as a 'Rock Band with Horns'). Nice to hear they are still successful.

Re: “Open-Carry Advocates Spark Controversy in Medina

Posted by DEO on 05/15/2014 at 3:43 PM:

"After the cops leave the lunatic goes into the restaurant where his wife is eating with her boyfriend and he proceeds to shoot the place up. Killed are his wife, her boyfriend, and in the spray of bullets a few patrons are slaughtered while having their monthly copblock luncheon."

Oh my, what a creative imagination!

FWIW - I don't think you'll ever find a documented case where peaceful, carrying citizens 'shoot up' the place after the 'cops leave' an open-carry demonstration.

Your reference is obviously a thinly-veiled account based on the nutbag who killed his wife and kids at the Brooklyn Cracker Barrel restaurant a few years ago. This is a major 'fail' based on a couple of crucial elements that lack any basis in reality. One - the perp in the Cracker Barrel incident never took part in a public demonstration of open carry. And two - Kevin Allen, the killer, had multiple previous arrests for domestic violence and, by law, should have never been allowed to own a firearm.

You're making a failed, thinly-veiled attempt to compare honest, peaceful law-abiding citizens to a known felon, with a history of violence against his spouse.

Nice try. Those of us who can see through the obvious tug on the heart strings - without any intelligent link to reality - can clearly identify it.

Re: “Open-Carry Advocates Spark Controversy in Medina

This is what happens after decades of media coverage treating legal carry, and the 2nd Amendment in general, as some sort of criminal act in and of itself. The sheeple buy into this notion without giving it a moment's critical thought, and 911 is dialed off the hooks. It certainly doesn't help matters that since 9/11, the NSA, and LE in-general, have been promoting a Nazi-like agenda of 'turn your neighbor in' on the silliest of premises. All in the name of 'security', mind you. Liberties? What liberties?

"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety" - Benjamin Franklin, circa 1755, Pennsylvania Assembly.
