    Cincinnati: Crime & Safety Discussion

    FWIW (pun intended), this is now how we reward bad behavior. It doesn't get any better than this: https://www.wlwt.com/article/city-kroger-to-pay-dollar240000-to-family-of-11-year-old-shocked-with-taser-by-police/24429931
  3. ^ Yes! FWIW, the Business Journal's editor followed up the original article with his own comments about it in his daily wrap-up, which was entitled: "A downtown game changer?" https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2018/10/19/five-things-you-need-to-know-today-and-a-game.html On a different note entirely, I'm wondering if this development might be stymied by the "usual suspect," John Cranley. This treacherous mayor has tampered with so many other downtown developments, I'm very afraid that his destructive influence may carry over here. Am I wrong?

    One of America's Paleo-Education Departments just initiated a new thrust, in that Kentucky now intends to compete with Kansas: https://www.wcpo.com/news/state/state-kentucky/matt-bevin-encourages-kentucky-students-to-bring-their-bibles-to-school-on-thursday
  6. I don't think that's true. Providing that we're talking about GDP, the past year Cincinnati maintained Ohio's biggest economy.

  8. FWIW, two upscale Cincinnati bars were ranked among "the world's best." They were also the only ones from Ohio to make this list. https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2018/09/14/two-cincinnati-drinkeries-named-worlds-best-bars.html

    Cincinnati: Kroger

    Some really big Kroger news today: https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2018/08/14/kroger-partners-with-alibaba-to-sell.html Although it's too early to make any sweeping conclusions about this new Asian alliance, it can be considered a major move by Kroger. Here"s what two other media sources have said about such a partnership: https://www.wsj.com/articles/kroger-to-sell-groceries-on-alibaba-site-in-china-1534268657?mod=hp_lead_pos10 https://www.cincinnati.com/story/money/2018/08/14/kroger-teams-internet-juggernaut-alibaba-sell-groceries-china/988283002/

    Separation of Church & State

    I'm really apprehensive to see these kinds of Bronze Age dictums creeping back into America of the 21st century, CE... https://www.wcpo.com/news/national/-in-god-we-trust-now-must-be-displayed-in-all-florida-schools-school-buildings Such primitive religious onslaughts are clear violations of the separation of church & state.

    Elon Musk

    Agreed. This self anointed leader of his own parade has become tiresome to listen to. Somehow, Musk reminds me of that smug little authority on all things, Henry Kissinger - who, in his own era, just wouldn't shut up.

    Although just conjecture at the moment, the new Kroger-Ocado alliance could shake up grocery shopping big time: https://www.wcpo.com/news/insider/game-changer-how-kroger-s-deal-with-ocado-could-reshape-the-industry Also of note, on a local level: https://www.wcpo.com/news/insider/despite-new-competition-kroger-co-keeps-gaining-market-share
