    Glad I logged on here … This thread us hilarious. Haters … Some real jealous haters here. I bet most of the bitching class here haven’t been to New Albany proper in a longtime. One poster said NA was a freeway lined with fast food typical suburb, where is this in NA. We need more eateries.

    Continue the hate …. New Albany is a success and you still don’t have your train! Lol

    So, then he’s *not* coming to Columbus after all… ;)

    One of those god awful suburbs with the bloodsucking suburbanites that steal all of that urban money and spend it on infrastructure to support their McMansion lifestyle that is destroying our society.

    There … I think I understand this board.

    Pretty much anywhere in Westerville is fine. But I mean Westerville city limits. A lot of apartments advertise as being Westerville but aren’t. Just stay north of 270 and east of 71 and you’ll be fine. You might also consider the weird area around 161/Hamilton/Morse that is considered Westerville, Gahanna, Columbus and New Albany depending on the street.

    I can’t believe what we sell names on … The freaking ER. We will have the a&f ER at the Wexner Medical Center in the city built by Victoria Secret.

    I can understand where ChrisSunami is coming from. And I feel bad.

    On the other hand, I can see where Roy is coming from as well.

    Oddly, plenty of white and black people attend the “Asian Festival.” Why is this?

    Because everyone loves a good Kung Pao!

    True … 1 suburban crime to 2 is a 100% increase, 200 East side murders vs 199 is a decline. Lol

    I don’t follow the logic here. Regardless of whatever your personal beliefs about about a man touching a woman I didn’t think laws for things like assault were different for men and women. Wouldn’t her slapping him be touching him out of anger?

    Coach Meyer has a policy of respecting females. So you think it is ok for a future NFL running back to hit a young female?

    JB all of your huff and puff here will fall on deaf ears if you and your generation doesn’t defy history and trends on voting regularity. If your generation doesn’t vote we can’t make the progressive changes needed. We will see how the equality measure does when it is on the ballot, your generation will have to vote in mass so we will see how that plays out. I hope they do …

    “It’s hard not to think of my parent’s generation as possibly one of the worst ever. What have they really accomplished that’s been a net positive for the nation?” isn’t serious criticism.

    Most of your criticisms have been historically inaccurate, and even acknowledging things like Stonewall you follow it up by claiming it really didn’t do much.

    Maybe its just that you don’t realize what things were like before their generation enough to recognize the difference, and are simply using a fairly narrow perspective. The 50’s were borderline oppressive. Women were to stay home, gays stayed deep in the closet, and blacks were still drinking at separate drinking fountains. Hell, even Jews were still basically excluded from mainstream society to a large extent.

    By the 70’s, Harvey Milk was the first openly gay politician to win an election, the Equal Rights Amendment was passing congress, the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act were the law of the land, bras were burned, draft cards were burned, an entire counter culture played a huge part in winning elections and losing (or at least leaving) a war, and on and on.

    I might also add, being the one to ride the sled down the far side of the hill of change and patting yourself on the back for making change, is an insult to all the people who fought to drag it up the hill for you so you could live through this change.

    Gay rights especially are not a millenial achievement. Ask all the people who have actually put in the time at organizations like Stonewall, Act Up, the Human Rights Campaign, etc. They were at work changing hearts and minds long before the millenials were born.

    Congratulations for being alive at the tipping point. It’s an exciting time many of us have long waited and worked for.

    1969. I get that most people view this as the start of the gay rights movement, but what were the tangible results? 35 years later, how many states passed gay marriage bans (including Ohio)? Who were most of those voters? The problem here is that I’m not suggesting that every single Boomer is ant-gay, anti-woman, etc. Of course to suggest that would be ridiculous. But for every positive event they were responsible for, there’s been at least the same amount of regressive policy from them, if not much more, especially recently for some reason. The abortion bills coming out lately… where are they coming from? The voting rights restrictions?

    Wow … JB 30 years from now punks are going to tell you that you didn’t do enough too. Go smoke one and chill, you will get your turn at the helm of history and we will judge your results in a historical perspective. Your gay right momentum is a direct result from Harvey Milks and the Stonewalll riots … Enjoy your life and thank someone for your rights.
