    Tuesday Talkback

    The moaners are back.

    “The people who call into Monday Moaning don’t leave their age. I bet the average age is 90.” — Cleveland, 36

    Thanks for bringing the average down, kid.

    “If car dealers are going to use nonprofessionals in their TV ads, please teach them to speak words correctly and not say ‘sentcha’ instead of ‘sent you.’” — Richfield

    I wonder where they get these women. I usually wonder this whenever I see the Sunnyside Honda ads. This woman in the ads -- I assume she is family. And the Crestmont ads -- why should we care that she is Christine from Crestmont? And who is this chicky in the Fred Martin ads -- someone must have taught her to talk that way, yet it seems so forced.

    “What a ‘sick’ city Cleveland has become! Jacobs Field has been renamed for an insurance company, the basketball arena for a loan agency, and now our new transit line becomes HealthLine! What’s next, ‘Cemetery Row’ for Lake Shore Boulevard? We already have ‘Dead Man’s Curve’ which they haven’t been able to make less deadly! It seems anymore, that naming rights money can buy anything! — Euclid

    You forgot "terminal" tower. But I don't understand how it is worth $6.25 million to UH and the Clinic to name the overrated Euclid Corridor busline the "HealthLine." At least when Progressive bought the naming rights to the ballpark, Progressive will get mentioned in every baseball game broadcast and article about games played there. After the HealthLine has been running for a few years, the only time you're going to hear about the HealthLine is if someone gets shot on the bus.

    “What message are we sending our children when we close schools because of two inches of snow or it’s too cold? As a business owner, I know they call in off from work just because their children are off. Sad.” — Parma

    See, you don't care about the kids at all. You just are mad because your employee, Bob Cratchitt, called off from work when his kids had to stay home.

    “It’s disheartening to read the nasty, sour grapes remarks a couple of people wrote about the Oscars. They must resent anyone enjoying themselves and having a good time.” — Cleveland

    Were the Oscars on?

    “I lived in Parma for 50 years. Reason No. 1001 for leaving: Suspending a kindergartner because of his haircut. Good OLD Parma — it hasn’t changed.” — Summerfield, Fla.

    Well, it has changed in this respect. This wasn't a public school suspension. It is a charter school. I guess they can cast off mohawk kids and other undesirables at their whim.

    “My moan is about idiotic drivers who do not know how to use a ‘left-turn-only’ lane. They either sit in the through lane holding up traffic, or they angle the front end of their car into the turn-lane leaving the rest of the car in the through lane still blocking traffic. If you’re too stupid to drive it, then park it.” — Euclid

    It is called a "horn" and it is located in the middle of your steering wheel.

    “Gee, maybe we could enlist those news people who found Prince Harry’s location to find Osama Bin Laden. Instead of wasting air and TV time on this bit of trivia, they might actually give us some useful news.” — Euclid

    Why would they start now?

    “When our power is out and we turn on our battery radio, we hear the announcer saying, ‘Go to .com for information.’” — Avon

    Use your battery-powered laptop, duh! Don't you keep a laptop charged up for emergencies? Heh.

    I have many things to moan about this week, but I don’t have the time because I have to shovel 8 inches of global warming off my driveway.” — Middleburg Heights

    Who are these idiots who don't know the difference between weather and climate?

    I'm pressed those 'idiots' about that before, and I've always been told "It's just a joke."

    Maybe it's funny the first two dozen times you hear it.

    If it is supposed to be a joke, it is a pretty tired one.
