During daily long walks through the Heights, I feel monstrous pain seeing Leader Newspapers prostrate and ignored on so many lawns, evidently unwanted, apparently not understood, obviously unappreciated, getting wet and decaying or whatever, destined for the trash. It’s just staggeringly sad, miserably depressing, all those people missing out on reading my Letters to the Editor.
Response to Lynn Ashby
In the 2016 World Series, the Cubs beat the Indians four games to three. Each team happened to score 27 runs in the seven games. If Lynn Ashby were an Indians fan, he’d be carrying on and protesting about everything including how the weather got the Indians shafted. So Ashby is predicting unkept promises by President-elect Trump who won some 3,000 U.S. counties to Hillary’s 489. But we don’t count the votes that way. Trump won 30 states to Hillary’s 20. But we don’t measure the outcome that way either. Trump won over 200 counties that Obama had won in 2012. He simply out-worked Hillary.
Oh, to review the list of Obama promises from 2007-2008 that Ashby will never acknowledge. Ashby will not highlight how the DNC deliberately blocked Bernie Sanders from defeating Hillary through the use of Super Delegates, or how CNN fed questions to Hillary in advance of her debates with him. Or how NBC sought advanced approval from Hillary’s campaign director, John Podesta, about the questions to ask GOP candidates in interviews. Those are perfectly normal activities of political hacks at NBC and Lynn Ashby.
Both candidates know the rules before the campaign, just as the Indians and Cubs knew them. So your column would have been more helpful to readers if you reflected on reforming the curious Democratic party primary process that led to the inevitable anointing of Hillary.
No painless solution to Coltivare parking issues
My wife and I recently moved to Oak Forest, we were living in a house in the 700 block of East 10th St. At the end of the block on Studewood were the Glass Wall and Black & White eateries. We experienced the same woes as the good folks on Arlington: Restaurant staff, up to ten cars, would park on the block all day followed by the restaurant goers. The City has a program called Residential Permit Parking, it took about 3-4 months from petition gathering to meeting with City officials, but the residents of the block now have permit parking during the busiest times of the day: Bonus: The towing companies have lists of such areas, they cruise them and call HPD to ticket the violators, and once ticketed they can be towed.
Oak Forest stunned with fallout of fire investigation
Nothing/no one can ever convince me this was murder suicide.
Heights Santa embroiled in dispute with local cleaner
I have a question for Wolfe cleaners. What changed between the first cleaning (that did no damage) and the second cleaning which turned the white fur pink? It seems like a logical question for them to answer.
