Steven Meeks commented on Big Read event: See the film Zora's Roots: the Life of Zora Neale Hurston.
Very well done. It brings back many youthful memories such as Saturday stroll from Sears to Ben Franklin. In the set titled "Time's Sentry", only the right-hand side of the old gas station was lost. A second story was later added. With more changes planned for West Main, now is the time to take...
Glenn Short commented on Big Read event: BIG READ film, starring Halle Berry
All this will forcefully change with the advent of Peak Oil and Global Warming. Wise humans are now simplifying their lives before the multiple crises hit. Those who count on scientific miracles to solve all problems feel no need to adapt and thus will suffer the most. Oh, that prophets like Randy...

What amazes me is how many details I recalled when my memory was jogged by this photo essay. Thanks for sharing a wonderful reminder of our collective past.
sparky commented on Big Read event: Lecture by prof Hilary Holladay
ARC fault circut (not ground fault) breakers are a GREAT solution. When a connection "breaks" inside an outlet or at a conncection the "spark" creates a voltage spike that trips the breaker. They can be installed for less than 100 per circut and done in one day. This is a very viable upgrade for...

Kucinich is public hero #1, which puts him at the top of the hit list for GE, Lockheed Martin, Ganette, etc. These companies lose hundreds of billions of dollars if he's elected. The people of this country get universal healthcare, universal education, no more war as instrument of policy, media...

Makin' the copies!!! Mr. McNair- Very fine piece, the nature of change. I wish you'd provide a link or photos if you have them to the unexpected bulldozer story, the bulldozer that knocked down the building in the background of the CHO Office machines photo, without a demo permit. Ask Hawes, he...

Dear Laura, Your article on my daughter Britta-Lena's exhibit was wonderful. You truly captured the essence of what her photography and artwork is all about, and what she is all about! Your words were worth more than if she had sold everything that she has hanging on the walls at the gallery. I...

Kucinich is an intelligent, wonderful public servant who serves well. That is why he has been re-elected SO MANY times as Congressman! He saved the electric municipalities in Cleveland and WAS HONORED by the city council for saving the common folk thousands of dollars in refusing to sell out! His...
