|Moaning yesterday, talkback today.|
"Why do adults have to use the F-word in every other sentence when they are on the public walking trail in the Cleveland Metroparks? So much for enjoying nature and the peace and tranquility of a gorgeous fall day in the park! And then we wonder where the kids get this language from." -- Garfield Heights
Nature is nasty and brutish. If these adults were getting back to nature, they wouldn't be merely saying the "F-word" in the park, they'd be doing it. And guess what, the kids are doing it too, and they aren't getting it from watching the adults in the park.
"Why do new moms send mass e- mails with pictures of their babies at every milestone? I get them from people I barely know. We don't want those; send them to grandma." -- Willoughby Hills
What's not to love about baby's first bowel movement? Lighten up! I'm waiting for photos of baby's first drug bust and baby's first teenage pregnancy, so precious!
"I think I've seen every Seinfeld' ep isode at least 20 times on Channel 8. It's time for new programming." -- Cleveland Heights
No, it's time for you to find something to do with your life besides sit in front of the TV all day and night.
"Want more space downtown? Tear down that stupid-looking Rock Hall of Fame. The inductees don't even show up." -- Strongsville
Not true! Walking down East Ninth just the other day, I saw Keith Richards! As I walked by, he asked me for fifty cents.
"Who would even think of showing up on the scene of a neighborhood dispute armed with bricks? What is wrong with people? That is just plain uncivilized! Bricks should be used for construction purposes, not for throwing at living beings or inanimate objects. Use your brain, act like the human beings we are." -- Garfield Heights
Perhaps these people were acting like the human beings they are. More civilized human being would bring more civilized weapons, agreed.
"How come the bicyclists do not obey the traffic laws like the cars have to? They go through red lights and stop signs." -- Garfield Heights
Bicyclists are supposed to obey traffic laws just like other vehicles. Between brick wielding neighbors and renegade bicyclists, Garfield Heights sure sounds like the old West.
