One Last Jab at the Occupiers

Occupy Cleveland is not an occupation just because it starts with the same five letters! ["Occupy Cleveland Releases Official Statement on Anarchist Wannabe Bridge Bombers," at the Scene & Heard blog.] Get a real job!

Casino Gold

As someone who grew up in Cleveland and has worked in Las Vegas casinos for 24 years, I think there have been very few missteps in the whole process in Cleveland ["New Downtown Cleveland Signage for Casino," at the Scene & Heard blog].

The Horseshoe Casino is being run by one of the two top gaming companies in the world. They know what they are doing, and putting the casino on Public Square rather than in the Flats will be much better for the city in the long run.

The Wisdom of Super Pimp

I loved this story and have always wondered who the man behind the perpetual smile was ["The Soul of the Super Pimp," April 4]. Kudos, David, for finally sharing a deeper piece of yourself. What you do is so pure and so much more than being a fun photo memory in someone's evening.

Who you are, as revealed in this interview, is testament that regardless of hard times, life can be what you make of it and there is magic in giving selflessly. Let's hope they all "get it" someday.

So Much for Health Food

Organic food is a waste of money for stupid people ["The West Side's Health Food Surplus," February 22]. Unless it's grown hydroponically, it's not truly organic. The rain's got acid in it, so anything rained on is contaminated.

People need to think for themselves and not let the government think for them.
