    I am just calling out the few posters who made the obvious references to race. Don’t like it? tough.

    I hope you’re also calling out the thread starter in your little round up of offensive posts.

    I saw a few posts with some attitude and a few references to rich white people that were pretty stereotyped, but far from the worst on the thread-which came a little later…after Walker actually called out the thread starter for stereotyping-before the worst stereotypes and vague references were actually made.

    Especially since rich white people have hardly been oppressed for 300 years in this country and are the primary beneficiaries of systemic and institutional racism that still exists in this nation.

    Do you happen to work in academia?

    You can take the Megabus to Cincinnati in the morning, walk and uber around the city, and then Megabus it back to Columbus in the evening. A round trip ticket is less than $25.

    I can’t believe that the queen of Columbus is moving away.

    Could Columbus host a major-party political convention?

    A lot of interesting information:

    While the city hasn’t committed to making an official bid to host either party’s convention, Experience Columbus, the city’s convention and visitors bureau, is leaning toward one.

    More important, Experience Columbus and city officials believe the region is now capable of hosting an event that could draw 45,000 visitors to the city, something that they said was not the case a few years ago.

    Columbus’ metropolitan area has 1.9 million people, fewer than Charlotte and Tampa, Fla., which hosted the Republican convention last year, but it has about the same number of hotel rooms as Charlotte and more than Tampa, according to Experience Columbus data. It also has twice as much convention space as either city.

    But there is more to it than adequate convention space and hotel rooms. Transportation is critical, and the region would have to show it can raise about $50 million from the public and private sector to cover costs tied to the event.

    We have more hotels than Tampa? And what would the $50 million go towards?

    If Columbus proceeds with a bid, it looks like it will have plenty of competition. Cleveland, a finalist for the Republican convention that ended up in Minneapolis, has indicated its interest, and Davidson said Cincinnati will be invited to bid as well.

    Outside of Ohio, media accounts have indicated interest from St. Louis and Kansas City, Mo.; Phoenix; Las Vegas; Charlotte, N.C. (this time for the Republicans); New Orleans; Minneapolis; Philadelphia; Nashville, Tenn.; Denver; Detroit; Chicago; and Salt Lake City.

    On the NBC evening news, Brian Williams talked about some of the RNC hopefuls and rattled off a list of cities and Columbus was the only one he named the state after. Columbus, Ohio. People still don’t know of Columbus. I lived in LA and it seemed that no one had heard of it.

    Do they sell beer at this even? Also, is there a shuttle bus to the Pumpkin Show? Thanks.

    have you tried Frontline on your pets? (assuming you are a pet owner) It worked for me. All the fleas in the house will jump on the animal and die after biting it.

    $180.00 seems a little steep for a round trip on a bus. Pay a little more and fly.

    I am a little bummed out that Yuengling chose foreign owned Budweiser as their distributor rather than a local family owned distribution company.

    I’m glad Yuengling is coming to Ohio, but I bet the luster wears off after a while.
