    ^ I still dont understand why they dont just give money directly to people. Instead they funnel it through businesses in order to complicate things.

    It also lowers the unemployment rate and makes Trump look better.   I expect this will be extended but the extra $600 will not.

    United Airlines to lay off 450 people at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport






    Not surprised--I had somewhere around 25 flights since March that I've had refunded.    And there are people that fly WAY more than me doing the same.  Truly sad--hopefully United will make it through this downturn.

    The "Chick-Fil-A Effect" is in full swing as Goya products are apparently flying off the shelves. Most of the people "boycotting" were people who likely didn't buy anything from Goya to begin with, the people who routinely do buy it are still buying it, and in addition a bunch of counter-boycotters are now buying it.


    I remember supermarkets in Queens were about 50% Goya products back when i lived there. I don't see it much in Ohio outside of the "international" aisle at Kroger. I'll probably pick some items up the next time I'm at the store - from what I remember it's beans, rice, olives, sauces, etc - all stuff I'll use eventually.


    I'll wait for the actual sales data.   This sounds just like the Trump supporters who keep telling me the NFL ratings are tanking, despite being up 5% in 2019.

    the ronettes backstage in cleveland (with no ronnie spector, phil would not let her on this tour in one of his nutty, jealous rages).


    opening for the beatles at the stadium

    The stadium was 35 years old at that point and looked like it was 70!

    I worked with a guy 20 years ago who grew up on the near-west side of Cleveland (Detroit-Shoreway area) when it was fading fast in the 1960s-70s. He moved to Parma. Then moved to a mcmansion with a big yard near Oberlin. He always talked about how much he like living in his old neighborhood in Cleveland, being close to everything, and then living in Parma where he had so little yard and thus so little yardwork to do. I asked him "Why don't you move back to Parma or Cleveland? I hear things are improving in Detroit-Shoreway."


    His reply.... "I'd move back to Parma but all of the houses in my neighborhood were too small. I'd never move back to Cleveland because of all of the 'thugs' that live there now."


    So he stayed in Oberlin until he died because Parma's housing stock needs updating and he refused to move to Cleveland because of his racism.


    I think I know 10 versions of this same guy.    


    And even on the east side where I grew up, the guys I went to high school with are moving FURTHER east out into Perry, Thompson etc.   I asked one of them and he told me he started to see too many black folks around Eastlake, Willowick, etc.

    So the Native Americans who proudly call themselves "Indians" are ignorant, backwards, traitorous Uncle Tom's? Perhaps they just need enlightened and privileged white's to better educate them on their choices. 




    I was merely pointing out that it was the first European explorers who applied the misnomer.

    I pretty sure I speak for most of us tribe fans in saying that a small piece of us will die inside when the Indians are fully scrubbed, but this didn't just start last week it has been building for decades. Plus when the Chief went away that kind of desensitized me to a name change.  


    I supported the end of Chief Wahoo because it was clearly racist.  I don't support the name change because I don't think it's offensive.  "Indians" isn't even an accurate name for Native Americans.

    ^ and there it is. The conservative solution. People will die and we just have to deal with it before we cause any sort of inconvenience to anyone. The rest of the world can figure it out but Murica is to good to do it.

    Excellent! Many buildings in Miami have convenience stores, but they are very, very expensive. I guess they need to be to cover the cost of rent. While very convenient, everything is 2-3x the cost of the same items in a grocery store. It's nice to just casually run downstairs for an item or two vs getting dressed and hopping in the car for a quick jaunt to the grocery store.


    When I was at CSU years ago I lived in the Chesterfield on E 12th.  The convenience store on the ground floor was a great asset--especially for a college student coming home after a few too many beers and still hungry!

    I've always found the 4-8 story range feels most comfortable as a pedestrian and offers up a high level of density so it's best of all worlds. I'd be more than happy with Cleveland filling in eastward to connect to University Circle via 3-6 story buildings transitioning to 4-8 story buildings as you get closer to University Circle and Downtown.


    Such a shame--the St Clair/Superior neighborhood used to be filled with these very kind of buildings!  spacer.png

    Well people like me are just going to put all of that into stocks.  Not sure how myself and another million Americans doing that helps the economy.  





    Apparently the Fed and Treasury Secretary think it helps.
