    Had two slices yesterday. Died and went to heaven, and just got back.

    A majority of the Supreme Court still thinks race matters: Kennedy said as much in 2007.

    “Colorblind” is not a way of being; it’s a way of pretending we’re not different. We must embrace those differences rather than ignoring them.

    The Kasich administration is not off to the best of starts.

    It appointed its biggest donor–someone without any political or policy experience–to create a privatized Department of Development, an idea that has been panned by a non-partisan group in Washington D.C.

    Rumor has it the Cleveland Cavaliers offered him a job and a mortgage on a new home.

    This is true. I was just listening to him on air (WNCI) when the lady from the Cavaliers called. She represented Quicken Arena as well. They offered him full-time work as well as a mortgage on a home. Hearing his reaction was the most moving bits a radio I’ve ever heard. He’s been getting offers all morning (Inside Edition, a spot on Katie Couric’s broadcast tonight, and an all-expense paid trip to Hawaii to do a commercial). I hope this reminds people to consider the value and story behind each person holding a sign.

    How long until Ted takes his talents to South Beach? :)

    What’s amusing about the timing of this is the Dispatch editorial board was excoriating Strickland less than two weeks ago about the merits of the rail plan.

    John Kasich and the GOP has turned away from a plan that the Ohio Republicans were endorsing just a few short years ago. And we’re already reaping the negative consequences.

    Transportation has long been the driving force of development, in the U.S. and elsewhere. The Romans thrived in large part because of their advanced transportation infrastructure, and we once did too. We neglect high-speed rail at our own peril.

    The Former Fox News Personality is actually helping Democrats by sending all those millions their way.

    In the spirit of the season, perhaps the FFNP is merely re-gifting–paying it forward, so to speak.

    Okay. So there are some openings right now on council.

    Let’s get someone on it that will do some good on this front.

    Lizless,

    What can be done to ameliorate those problems? Does it start and end with the personnel?

    This is clearly my fault: I should have written, “‘Smothered Gravy’ to open on Near East side” rather than “opens.”

    Mea culpa.

    An imperfect representation, to be sure, but the general depiction it offers of our city’s residential patterns is quite accurate….and not at all out of step with other cities nationwide.

    It would be beneficial to see a more specific, community-by-community breakdown.
