    Yes, I would hope so. This election is a full year before the levy expires. I have a feeling the zoo intentionally swung for the fence on this one. They know that they can try again in November with a smaller levy and it will look like a comparative bargain.

    It makes sense to try something this ambitious this early, because then they still have time to try something less ambitious later.

    … because that’s quite a stretch.

    Somehow we’ve gone from zoo levy -> koch brother’s -> achekov is pro-cancer. Hello weekend.

    Is this where I should make the leap to Hitler?

    I like that White Castle has really come out swinging in the breakfast market. Now they just need to replace some of the locations they closed with new ones in better locations.

    I’ve always looked at LaRosa’s as one of those Cincinnati things like chili that people from there really dig but I think is merely alright.

    I wouldn’t sell Cincinnati-style chili short. It may not be what we think of as traditional chili but it’s actually a fairly sophisticated dish, IMO. In fact, it is not that dissimilar to some of the mole sauces you might find in southern Mexico that have been around for years.

    My aunt and uncle are retired and they are looking to move back into the city where they can drive less and not have to do yard work. They never thought of this before because the choice didn’t really exist. Now that there are choices, and they’ve seen them they are re-thinking their plans. So, the question is becoming bigger than just millennial now.

    We could use a kids toy store that’s light on plastic stuff.<br>
    A Moroccan restaurant would be nice, too.

    +1 on Moroccan.
    +2 if they wash your hands in rosewater before dinner.
    +5 if they have belly dancing.

    61% of young college republicans support same-sex marriage, but 99.9% of them will still vote republican. Because “‘murica!”

    Illustrates the changing nature of society. Wasn’t that long ago Obama didn’t support gay marriage, so not exactly a dem/gop clear divide.

    The issue mattered to Obama’s voters. The issue obviously doesn’t matter enough to republican voters yet because they’ll still pick an anti-gay marriage republican candidate over a pro gay-rights democrat most of the time

    2. John Oliver killed it filling in for Stewart, I think he’d be a great choice.

    He’s already got his own show on HBO. In fact, I think the first episode may be this coming Sunday.

    1840 Hilliard Rome Rd is as Hilliard as it gets.

    Is there a giant roundabout nearby?

    This wins the “duh” award. Preventing sprawl requires urban growth plans, which the republicans call “big gummint”. They’d rather let developers do whatever they want, even when they get stuck in the traffic.

    I thought that the constitution protected us from cruel and unusual punishment. I guess that courtesy does not extend to sophomores in college.

    Is this the appropriate venue to joke that his “jokes” may be better tolerated in WV? But seriously, I remember a story where he donated half of all of his pay bonuses that he got for fundraising to a student scholarship fund. He also got some other CEOs to donate portions of their bonuses to the fund. Lex Wexner might have been one of the CEOs on the list. I have to give him credit for that one.

    I think metro rail that makes it easy for people out in New Albany, Dublin and Delaware to zoom downtown would be a start. If you look at successful thriving downtown areas like Portland or NY, a lot of the people down there on Saturday night rode in on a train from Beaverton or Brooklyn.
