My summer reading this year included Destiny of the Republic by Candice Millard. I highly recommend that NEO residents pick up the book before the RNC convention. So much has changed, but so much is the same. The "spoils system" especially threatens to derail our country - not to mention the seemingly never-ending racial divisiveness.

Across the Buckeye State, trails provide opportunities for a healthy lifestyle, boost local economies, and provide a safe way to connect people and places. Ohio’s trails are an important resource—and your senators know it, too.

Anyone remember who said the line "Only little people pay taxes" ? I will come back to that question after you "google" the answer. Well, evidently, the rule applies in Cuyahoga County, too. Two politically-connected tax evaders are getting some attention this past week.

A bit late, but I have been recuperating from wonderful visit from my sister, her husband and grand-daughter, where we ate out and shopped, shopped, shopped, which was what they wanted to do. And I have had a string of chronic migraines.

done anything about the bubble that is building up (again.)
Of course, he piously affirms that, as regards his role in bailing out the too-big-to- fail banks, no one knows how bad it could have been.
These giants are now distributing enormous bonuses again and were not punished at all, or only had their hands slapped with an easily paid, though high, fine for rigging LIBOR, allowing a foreign exchange trader to lose a ton of money, and...oh, wait....no one is investigating the rigging of gold prices, nor prices of silver, either.

I am furious about what I read. How has our country changed so far, so fast, that this is happening? Our senators and representatives, as well as the government officials, and often the judges, are reprehensible. * * * * Quite some time ago, there were other whistleblowers about the extraordinary NSA surveillance and the immense building they are building in Utah to house it. I wrote you about it then and you said it had been forbidden. Well, they are doing it anyhow! What are you doing about it? Nothing I can see. I agree with those that ask for an investigation.

In the heat of another insane news week - it may have been lost on some folks that a young man was shot and killed outside of a library in Cleveland. Another grim statistic. A boy.

Norm Roulet created a community of interest to gain the attention of Peter B. Lewis. Norm saw Peter B. Lewis as the only prominent philanthropist in Cleveland, who could SEE through the bullshit and con artists in this town - and THINK to make positive change.

Hello everyone, just joined.
I have joined the hunger strike to Save John Marshall High School. I never attended this school, but I admire Satinder's dedication and I am fed up with the direction of the Cleveland School Board under mayoral control. Today is my second day of fasting.

SF Gate, home of the San Francisco Chronicle, May 23, 2012: The Iranian Navy is said to have rescued the U.S.-flagged US-flagged Maersk Texas, which was beseigned by several pirate ships in the GUlf of Oman, coming to its rescue after hearing its distress signal. The pirates fled as soon as they saw the warship appear.
The Maersk's corporate offices, however, denied it, saying the Iranian Navy was the first to respond after sending the distress signal but weren't helped by them, instead Iran's navy provided guidance to the crew of the Maersk Texas by radio.

There are so many great ironies in NEO--one is the School of Medicine at CWRU located immediately adjacent to the facilities plant that contributes to asthma, cancer and other chronic disease.

At a Social Security forum today, the impact the deficit would have on Social Security and Medicare was discussed. The outlook is not good. They are considering raising the age you qualify, cutting payments by 3% as you get older, just when needs are higher, so that if you live long, you could have a 12% cut.

I hadn't read about this honor given to one of our own, but ran across it and thought I'd bring it to your attention in case you missed it too. I had never read clvelandcitizenechoesonline.com Unfortunately, he seems to have quit writing, I don't find anything current. In another area clevelandcitizenechoesonline.com/PP-5.htm he made refernce to another of Jerleen's articles in the Plain Press and praised her writing, saying:
