Re: “The Pandemic Took Some of the ‘Fine’ Out of Fine Dining. Cleveland Restaurateurs Hope What's Left is Worth the Cost

Working or owning a restaurant isn't a real job? What's your "real job" Chelsea? Must be pretty good if you're commenting on Scene articles at 4:31AM

Re: “Metroparks Study a Small Step in Long, Unlikely Journey to Move I-90, Reunite Gordon Park

You're article hints at the smart way to get a project like this done. Locals and State aren't even in the same ballpark with the amount of money needed, so they need major Fed help. Instead of just a transportation project, start making it environmental or even environmental/social justice and all the sudden dollars might be available. Look how Public Square got renovated. Remember, that wasn't a park project. That was a bus project that made it able to use Fed transit dollars. Now of course, that came back to bite them in the ass when the same logic was used to prevent Superior from being closed permanently, but you get the idea.

Re: “Despite Increased Demand, Cleveland Butcher Shops in No Danger of Running Out of Quality Meat

You get what you pay for. Oh, and no one can "pay a living wage" if the the ground beef is 89 cents a pound. Can't have it both ways.

Re: “Mayor Frank Jackson Confirms: All Cleveland Recyclables are Going to a Landfill

The mentality of the city leaders isn't that much different from most Americans including most of you reading this. Think about it. How many people would be out bitching if instead of hearing the recycling was going to a dump, they heard the city was spending $10M on recycling?

"We need to recycle to save the plant!!!!" Wait, what's that? Recycling costs 4 times as much as just throwing it away? "YOU need to recycle. I'm not because it's expensive, but YOU do or you're killing the planet".

same as:
"We need to do something about these horrible industrial food processors" Wait, you're telling me open range eggs are $5/dozen? "YOU need to support the local farmer. I'm buying my dozen eggs for 99 cents at Marc's"

or:
"We need to buy American! Save our jobs!!!" Wait, what's that? The American version of my TV will cost me $5 grand if you can even find one? "YOU need to buy American, but I'm going to Walmart and getting my $499 4K TV".

You could go on and on. We (this country) are all about convenient social causes. As long as it doesn't inconvenience me or make me uncomfortable, I'm all in......

Re: “Ohio State Rep. Who Blamed Dayton Mass Shooting on Same-Sex Marriage, Introduced Abortion Bills, Loses GOP Primary for State Senate Seat

To be honest, I'm surprised she lost. I see a lot of people in this state/country that hear stuff like that and say "hmm, she does have a point there...."
