A Great Rant...

Remember Lee Iacocca, the man who rescued Chrysler Corporation from its death throes? Her e is an excerpt from his new book.


"Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder. We've got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, "Stay the course"

COFFEE RUN - PORT COLBURNE IN LATE JANUARY

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 01/29/2008 - 00:00.


 Having worked in the construction business for years, I got so I could tell when a Diesel was rev'd a little too high.

So here I was on the Welland Canal in late January asking - was it the ice breaking that was forcing the revs? - or was it time for a coffee break?

It was the Tim  Horton's  coffee!

Wind and Steel...

Submitted by Charles Frost on Mon, 01/28/2008 - 21:30.

I was just thinking about the fact that the steel industry here in Cleveland has been declining (okay dying) for decades, well, we do call ourselves a "rust-belt city, don't we....

.....and I was thinking about our possible future in terms of wind tower, turbine, blade, turbine housings, etc. manufacturing.

As I get older, my passion for food and wine is catching up with me.  I no longer hear adjectives like lithe or lanky used to describe me, but so what?!

reading, writing and arithmetic in public office

Submitted by Susan Miller on Sat, 01/26/2008 - 11:38.

I am reading the PD this morning and came across this article which points up two basic issues regarding our elected officials here in Cleveland. We all seem to know that the Cleveland schools have had a tough time educating students -- it's  a complex problem to solve, but modeling the behavior can go a long way toward giving students something to which they can aspire. Remember the "3 Rs"?

SAFETY NET - LUMINOUS VEIL OF AL BIRNEY

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 01/25/2008 - 13:44.

After posting this morning, I had more thoughts about the nobility of the suicide-prevention fence.   I knew I should go back and visit it more closely because when I saw the bridge before I was with someone who was driving so I couldn’t stop. 

 

SAFETY NET - FOR J. MURRAY

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 01/25/2008 - 10:43.

   

 A recent response by J. Murray, an energetic contributor to Brewed Fresh Daily - struck me as fatalistic, inhumane, insensitive, and blindly lacking in informed self-interest.   Reading J large, helping our neighbor is to interfere with the inevitable, efficient, scientific cycle of capitalism.   I don’t believe that J’s “Man” is slave to any economic model - provided he  thinks and acts.
