  1. Interesting. I know in other threads there’s been the argument that the economic benefits from tourism are overrated. Anyone have an opinion on just how much CLE and the county should invest to radically increase those numbers of visitors?

    Love it. I’ll show co-workers some of these pics and they’ll have absolutely no idea it’s not Maine or somewhere up in the Pacific NW.

    Favorite Music At The Moment?

    Nice. A great little spot. You never know who you're going to see there on the stage, or in the audience. I swear the ceiling gets lower every time I go there lol.

    The Democratic Party

    We All Vote Against Our Own Self-Interests American electoral politics are a messy balancing act of cognitive dissonance. It is time to stop blaming poor white people. We all vote against our own self-interests. All of us (at least those of us who vote). This idea resurfaces in the wake of an unexpected (by the left) electoral victory by Donald Trump, though it is one of the well established tropes of American political discourse, especially among white liberals. We stand around scratching our heads, asking the question: “How is it that the white poor and working class insist on voting against their own self-interests?” We lament demagoguery and puzzle over the white precariat who espouse Trumpism and the austerity of the Republican platform. The word “ignorant” pops up with some regularity. This is a mistake. We all do it, though. All of us (at least those of us who vote) vote against our own self-interests. Every single one of us. Every single time we vote. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/its-time-to-stop-blaming-poor-and-working-class-white_us_582384a7e4b0334571e0a53d
  6. Any ideas as to why it's labeled on google maps? p.s. I actually do want to visit Shrum Mound now.
  7. N. Grant Ave. Anyone know what this "mound" is about?
  8. It's getting to the point where I can't even visualize where these buildings are anymore - so much construction! Question for those still in Columbus: how much more space is there in SN for future growth? Is it close to being built-out? What do the next 5 years have in store?
  9. Lake Erie paddlers form Northern Ohio Surfrider Foundation to clean lakes, rivers By Laura Johnston, cleveland.com CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Ohio now has its own chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, a Malibu-founded organization working to protect rivers, lakes and oceans. The Northern Ohio chapter formed in April and is still "finding its sea legs," said chair Christy Gray. It will roll out its big initiative at a meeting at 7 p.m. Oct. 17 at Saucy Brew Works, 2885 Detroit Ave. So far, Surfrider has hosted beach clean-ups and a Cuyahoga River clean-up with the Port of Cleveland's Flotsam and Jetsam boats, before the big Head of the Cuyahoga regatta. "Now we're trying to figure out how to find a place in this environment," said Gray, a stand-up paddler. https://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2018/10/lake_erie_paddlers_form_northe.html

    Kluber's last four playoff starts have been pretty bad. Here's hoping he gets another chance to turn it around.
