    Political Correctness

    Who is holding it against him? Typical paranoid, over-sensitive, right-wing, snowflakes. You’re both basically saying you’re offended by someone apologizing. Grow up

    Where do you see he is being “attacked” by the “far left”. The article says only that he apologized. Are people not allowed to feel guilty about using slurs? Feeling a bit triggered?

    It can both be legally protected and political correctness.

    The "Generation Gap"

    Yeah, tonight Liz Phair is playing the Madison Theater. Her first record, released around 1994, was a female response to The Rolling Stones' Exile on Main St, which was 22-23 years old at that point. I am around a lot of young musicians now at work (aside from the fact that I let people practice in my basement) and they simply *do not know* about so much basic stuff. Just this past weekend I played Dave Brubeck's Take Five and nobody had heard it. It's like the best-selling jazz record of all-time. There is simply no way someone can convince me that the way people are being exposed to recorded music now is better than it was for the previous 50 years. It's all free, but there are no gatekeepers. Radio is worse than ever and MTV is long-gone. I know a guy who is about 30 who is a professional music critic for a website that shall not be mentioned. We talked one day and he had never listened to a Rolling Stones record. It's like...what? It's like an architecture critic being unfamiliar with Frank Lloyd Wright. One could also argue that an obdurate inability to enjoy anything at all ever that is new also leads to a confounding ignorance!

    The Democratic Party

    Yikes I live in TX and did not know those things about O'Rourke. However my takeaway is not that we need to treat Kavanaugh with more respect, but that white privilege runs so deep that no matter how badly you mess up your birthright will almost never be questioned. O'Rourke admits this and admits that his privilege allowed him to still have a successful career. Ok great can’t wait for Election Day!

  9. It seems like a lot for that house, but the location is pretty great. You’re not going to be getting any deals in Ohio City at the moment. I would expect a property like that to backslide a bit in value when things settle down. Of course that’s just an opinion, based only on limited experience. Ohio City is definitely the best area in Cleveland at the moment imho. However, I think Detroit Shoreway has a chance to catch up eventually. And while you also won’t find any “deals” per se in Detroit Shoreway, I think a lot of the properties in that neighborhood are more likely to retain their increased value, since they have been undervalued for so long. I was thinking along the same line. It seems as though they wanted the house as an investment property and quickly changed their mind. That being said, they honestly didn't keep in on the rental market for very long, listing it a few weeks after purchasing the property and then switching over to selling it about a month later. This leads me to another question: how's the rental market in the area? As I mentioned, I'd be interested in something similar to this which would allow us to occupy one unit and rent out the other as a standard rental or AirBNB. We've looked at rental units in the area and it doesn't look like there are many that are available. I'm assuming that most units go pretty quickly. I own a rental in Detroit Shoreway. It’s a recently renovated 2,000 sf 3-bedroom with a garage. It’s located just south of Bridge and just west of 65th. It rents for $1,700 and Zillow (FWIW) lists it at $210k. That location is in Gordon Square but on the southern fringe of what would be considered the “hot” area. Like I said though, it’s recently renovated with high end appliances, etc.

    The Republican Party

    This guy should be running for president of Uganda, but I guess Texas is a close second. True story: Trump won Texas with 52% of the vote and Ohio with 51% of the vote!

    You’d like to believe that but: Coleman, Erving, Manziel, Gilbert, Mingo, Weeden, Taylor

    Taylor was the 8th best QB by rating in 2015. He’s also run for 500 yards three times, which isn’t nothing.

    What exactly was "get rid of him" wrong with Taylor today? Some inconsistency and one pick, otherwise a good game. The offense was inept, Taylor's decision making was awful, he missed wide open receivers, he threw an INT at crunch time (his one claim to fame is that he usually doesn't turn the ball over), he didn't step up in the pocket, he actually ran into a sack when the left side was wide open for a QB run or pass, etc. I'm really not surprised though. Everyone knows that Taylor is at best an average quarterback. This is the guy who was actually benched for Nathan Peterman for crying out loud. It's only a matter of time before he is benched for the Heisman winner and #1 overall pick. How many times did Tyrod revert to that little dump off pass 3 years down field right over the line of scrimmage. It must have been 6 times in the last two drives. It seems like he was always looking for the relief valve. Count me in on the "let's try Baker" bandwagon. Browns fans are the worst. This is why we keep ruining rookie QBs (or playing guys like Manziel when we're 7-4.). We were expected to lose the first two games even if we're much better this year, and we tied the Steelers and would have beaten the Saints if we had a kicker and you're calling for the QB's head already? Come on. I don’t think the fans are the ones ruining anything

    I don’t understand the point in cutting him. You’re telling me they couldn’t get ANY value for him? They way this team just absolutely lights assets on fire is comical.
