  1. Why would the NBA want one team to win all the time? Also, refs had nothing to do with Rockets missing 27(!) 3 pointers in a row.
  2. I like the Pels playing hardball with the Lakers. Hopefully LeBron is forced to waste one of the few remaining years of his career on a talentless 8 seed. Also John Wall ruptured his Achilles in a non-basketball accident. Man, the Wizards can’t match the sublime incompetence of the Browns or Kings, but an argument could be made they’re a more miserable franchise. Going on 20 years of underachieving hopelessness.
  3. Eh depends on what you mean by overhyped. It’s certainly not much of a city urbanity-wise. But I feel like its reputation is built on food, music, and tech. All three dwarf anything similar in the 3Cs.
  4. 20 miles from downtown. I live in Austin. The sprawl is unreal, especially heading north along 183 and 35.
  5. The whole McDonald’s thing is a big nothingberder
  6. 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
  7. 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?
  8. It can both be legally protected and political correctness.
  9. Catholic school fires unwed teacher for getting pregnant https://www.cleveland.com/nation/2018/12/pennsylvania-catholic-school-fires-unwed-teacher-over-pregnancy.html
  10. 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!
  11. 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!

  13. 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.
