    I would like to know more about this myself. While I certainly don’t condone rape, I also don’t like to see a potentially innocent person’s life ruined by mob justice. I want more information about this before forming an opinion.

    According to Google Maps, the GetGo on 5th is technically in Grandview Heights. I don’t know how accurate that is though.

    Sexist much?

    How so?

    If you’re patient, you can find a high-end phone that’s a generation behind for around $200 anyway. That’s what I did, and will do soon when I upgrade.

    I’ve been with Cricket for a year and a half and I have no regrets. My family and I started out with 5 lines with unlimited talk/text and 500 MB data each at $110. We are now at 2.5 GB of data and our bill has actually dropped to $100 (no taxes or fees either!). It’s owned by AT&T and on their towers, so you get all of the signal strength and reliability of AT&T. We previously had Verizon (had my own phone since 2002 — mom had hers since the ’90s) and my service is just fine in comparison to VZW. Only downsides:

    1. If you want a high-end phone, you’re going to pay (no contracts, so no discounts)
    2. Although they have 4G LTE data, I have read it is capped at like 4 GB/sec. That said, it is plenty fast enough for just about anything you would do on a phone.
    3. Their customer service kind of stinks. But I haven’t needed it since our phones were activated.

    You can use pretty much any AT&T phone, so if you want to avoid high prices — just buy a used AT&T phone. I recommend Cricket for sure.

    I’m curious what retailers will sign on. I live 6 minutes away from that intersection, so I would certainly be a frequent customer if it has the right mix of stores.

    So, BrewDog building a brewery in our area was this really cool thing we were all really excited about. But now that there are rumors it may be built in Gahanna, it’s not cool anymore. Got it. The anti-suburb bias of this board is downright comical sometimes.

    I live near Trabue and Hague just across the river from UA — did not hear anything, but I am indoors with the TV blaring.

    “I hate that other people like things.”

    I have my own reason for disliking Jeni’s, but it has nothing to do with being overpriced, FDA regulations, or the zeal of their fans.

    Skreened is a scummy company and always has been. I am shocked at how many here defend their practices.

    How can an adult not know the difference between a watch and a warning? By definition of the words, it should be fairly obvious.

    Good riddance

    Haha, nobody likes Petric. In fact, I would say the only positive thing about the Other Paper shutting down was taking away his medium to shit on local bands.

    Are you sure? They posted the “1975-2015” thing on Facebook a month ago. Their latest post from April 5 says they have shows booked through June.

    For fear of revealing that I am a fool: What is the difference between a CSA and an MSA?

    MSA, Metropolitan Statistical Area, is the stat you most often see in discussions about how big a “city” metro area is.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metropolitan_statistical_area

    CSA, Combined Statistical Area, sticks together MSAs that are close to one another.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combined_Statistical_Area

    Cleveland’s CSA will be much larger than anyone else’s in the state for a long time because it encompasses Akron-Canton. Because Columbus isn’t part of a larger, developed urban area, it’s CSA doesn’t affect it’s overall population very much.

    I wouldn’t say for a long time. There has been a lot of chatter about a Cincinnati-Dayton CSA in the near future. It’s nowhere near a for-sure thing, but it would make sense as I-75 between the two cities is pretty much all suburban now. I’m not sure if it would top the Cleveland-Akron CSA, but it would at least be close.
