    Tuesday Talkback

    The moaners keep moaning, and I keep talking back.

    "An advertisement in the daily paper from a Wheeling Island racetrack stating that we can win free Steelers' season tickets. Does this company realize that they are advertising in a Cleveland, Ohio, newspaper?" - Euclid

    And do you realize where this racetrack is? In WEST VIRGINIA -- Steelers Country.

    "The police chief of Lorain said his men do not get any respect in their jobs. Well, maybe he forgot that sometimes you have to give respect in order to get respect." - Cleveland

    Interesting that this is a moaner calling in from Cleveland. I tried to find the article he was moaning about, and the only article I could find was Three Lorain Police Officers in Trouble Several Times, which contained a list of "incidents" including this one:

    December 1999: Marerro responded to a woman's suicide call. He returned several times to console her, and they developed a sexual relationship. The woman said she had sexual encounters with Marrero at her home, a park and a police substation. Marrero claimed she was the aggressor and he had sex so she would go away.

    All I can say is ... when has having sex with a needy person EVER resulted in making that person go away? There are lots of things I might feel for someone who tries that, but "respect" is not one of them.

    "Second-hand smoke can slowly kill; second-hand drink can kill instantly." - Brecksville

    How about second-hand dimestore wisdom? Dull and deadly.

    "How can Giant Eagle Get Go service stations possibly charge $2.89 for a quart of oil when you can get a gallon of gas for only $2.09?" - North Olmsted

    ONLY $2.09? Amazing what we get used to. Nevermind that these are two different petroleum products -- would this fool be happier if gas were close to $12/gallon just so the price of a quart of oil made more sense to him? Here is better question: does the price of a quart of oil swing 15 cents every three days just like the gas? Huh? Yeah, I didn't think so.

    "The morally-righteous, God-fearing Republican hierarchy had a known pedophile among their ranks and looked the other way. Sure gives the war on terror a whole new meaning." - Cleveland

    Seriously, instead of having a real discussion and debate about the serious failures of this administration in the competent execution of the "war on terror, " one creepy congressman later, the debate is reduced to meaningless comments like this. The funny thing is, this incident might fuel some voter outrage, but really, voters who weren't outraged before this simply weren't paying attention.

    "To the crybabies moaning about the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections. The UAW doesn't want voting in the Toyota place. The Jewish people don't want it in the Christian church. They don't have to take part in any service, and the Toyota people, well, too bad. Grow up, people." - No city

    Oh, like the votes are going to count either way!

    "Why are all the weather people in this area wrong most of the time with their reports?" - Parma

    Complaining about the weather forecast is as boring and tired as complaining about politicians! Oops...

    "I've had it with politicians who mail out ads but don't state which party they are affiliated with." - Brecksville

    Does party affiliation mean that much to you? If so, contact the party for whom you are a mindless drone and get their slate card.

    "Solon wants to raise their sewer rates again. We have lived here for more than 40 years, and they have never benefited our home. Our basement is flooded every year, every time it rains, and it's just a waste of money. Our sewers now serve no purpose." - Solon

    Sewers...have never benefited your home? Is this house occupied by a family of cats? Drainage is something else -- but are you telling me you haven't flushed in forty years?

    "Are the gas prices going to go up after the elections are over?" - Concord

    Yes. It will also snow.

    "What's the difference if I put a dollar in a slot machine or buy a dollar lottery ticket? Are they not both gambling?" - No city

    Look at where the money goes.

    "The Catholic church leaders are such hypocrites. They speak out against casinos, but they have bingo, festivals, nights at the races and any other way to make money." - Brook Park

    Right -- these are fundraisers. Not profit centers for private investors. Whether or not you support slot machines or casinos, you have to admit that these fundraisers will lose some of their appeal.

    "I don't understand why the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections gave into the Orthodox Jews as to where they could vote. It's just going to open up a Pandora's Box to everyone else who is going to want their own personal place to vote." - Parma

    Well, if you read the article, there was actually a question as to whether the Board of Elections followed the law, and they changed the polling place to a place that would bring the Board into legal compliance. So, if you think following the law opens some kind of Pandora's Box, might I suggest a job with the Bush Administration?

    And if someone gave me Steelers tix -- I'd gladly accept them. I probably wouldn't go, but I'd get them into the hands of someone who would appreciate them.

    Second-hand drink? What is that, backwash? Blech!
