  1. Converted? The plans that were presented were always for new construction.

    Cleveland: Crime & Safety Discussion

    She was one of, if not the first, to write about us. Very sad to lose her. And a very bizarre crime, as well.

    The Trump Presidency

    I think that's the happiest I've ever seen Trump look. Seriously, how often does the man actually smile?

    Nobody is debating your first paragraph. The point people are making is that it's a measure of how undemocratic the Senate is. Anyone who still doesn't understand that point is being an idiot, to use your standard.
  6. At one point Uptown Phase III was supposed to be that little patch of grass between Uptown and Moca. I wonder if they've just decided to keep it as a park permanently. It's not a bad greenspace, but it definitely leaves that end of Uptown feeling unfinished to me.
  7. Some of that stuff in Gates Mills isn't actually authentic to the early/mid 1800's, but was actually built later, or renovated to look more "Western Reserve/New Englandy" when it started to become a wealthy enclave in the early 20th century.

    The Democratic Party

    It's a wave, but the Republicans have an awfully high seawall in a gerrymandered House, non-population based Senate, and for 2020- the Electoral College.
  9. I'll pitch in what I've heard about the ex-Brickman development- it's being scaled up considerably from the last rendering we saw, though exact plans aren't in place. Or weren't as of when I heard the rumor a couple of months ago.

    The Democratic Party

    Expecting a Democrat to give answers to hot-button topics that are going to please West Texas? How many Republicans are playing to Austin?
  11. I know that article is tongue-in-cheek, but the "Trumpistan vs Clintonia" map they link to shows why no geographic split will ever work- the divide isn't by states or regions of the country, it's urban-rural. And even with the "Big Sort", there's no way to split a people in two without leaving large numbers of people stranded in "enemy" territory.

    Electric Scooter Sharing

    In Cleveland they popped up like elsewhere, but they've since disappeared. Can't say I'm sad.
  13. I don't think those other models represented anything more than, "Hey, what would 5 million sq ft of new office space look like in our Downtown skyline?" They weren't specific proposals.

    The Trump Presidency

    As bad as Trump is for America, it's always worth remembering that authoritarian regimes the world over are using his words and actions as justification for their own. America used to lead the free world. For the first time, under Trump, we lead the authoritarian world.
