    Tuesday Talkback - Executive Edition

    Too many moaners this week, and too little time for me to face them all. Today I present the special select Executive Edition of Tuesday Talkback.

    "I think it's a disgrace that Tops stores are discontinuing their off-brand products. A lot of people cannot afford the brand-name items." - Cleveland

    Ummmm, don't you think that has something to do with the fact that in just a few weeks, all of the Tops stores are either being sold or closing? I suspect Giant Eagle doesn't want to assume Tops' off-brand lines, because Giant Eagle has their own. And if you think you can't afford the brand-name stuff, how do you think the hundreds of soon to be laid off Tops employees feel?

    "I wish I could have told these politicians what I think of their solicitation calls." - Mentor

    Most of these politicians have offices with phones. And people who answer them. Call them! It may fall on deaf ears, but you don't have to just wish. You actually can make those calls!

    "As a senior citizen, it is hard to check several times to see if we have mail. It doesn't even come close to the same time every day." - Brook Park

    I don't understand this expectation that the mail is supposed to come at the same time every day. This isn't the first time I've heard this. The mail comes when it comes. The only complaint should be if it doesn't arrive at all on a given day, or if they stick it in the wrong place. If you don't want to keep looking for it, then wait till late in the day to check your mailbox. And if you want your mail first thing in the morning, get a PO Box, as mail usually gets delivered to PO Boxes before the carriers even go out on their routes.

    "I'm so tired of sending a gift check to my grandchildren and not receiving a note or call to say thank you. Shame on their parents, too." - No city

    Easy. Stop sending the money. I bet you'll get a call then. As for shaming these kids' parents, shame on the parents' parents for not raising them right either. Oops, that would be YOU, grandma.

    "I moved back to Cleveland hoping to find the Cleveland I'd left. But what I found was an area taken over by foul-mouthed, ungrammatical, smoking morons, whose ineptitude at driving is exceeded only by their stupidity at choosing local leaders. And Dennis only provides the national spotlight on Cleveland's continuing joke status!" - Fairview Park

    There's no place like home! I'm not exactly sure when you left Cleveland, Dorothy, but Dennis didn't exactly just arrive on the scene. He was elected Mayor of Cleveland in 1977 and was mayor when the city defaulted in 1978. He made national news then, too. Where've you been the last 30 years?

    Dorothy should had investigated the city she was moving to prior to the move.
    Also, I have surmised that she drives a Buick and is most concerned with her mail delivery time. I am sure she sits all day waiting for her grandchildren to send her a thank you for the $5.00 check she sent them and feels forced to watch Jerry Springer trying to figure out where she went wrong in child rcare until such time as the cards arrive or until just before heading off to Bingo in Parma.

    It does sound like the same person wrote all the moans. Grandma will probably be surprised and distressed when her grocery store closes for three weeks, and then re-opens as a different store. The new layout alone might kill her.

    These comments are LOL -- well, Mr. B's and Anne's.... I got a kick out of Dorothy who forgot about Mayor Perk's earlier antics -- with Cleveland's Cuyahoga River being set on fire (and didn't he set his hair on fire too?) Whoops -- you wouldn't remember, Audient, we're talking wayyyyyyy back when. YES:

    Ralph J. Perk

    I cannot wait to come back to the cleveland area, where drinks are only a nickel and hotdogs are supreme!

    If we have to wait for the end of the day to check the mail, the terrorists have won.

    Duh.
