This image shows the wall/roof structure of what may well be the largest "A" frame building in North America - designed by Joan E. Goody circa 1960 -  more images soon.  The building is used as the gymnasium at Camp Kenwood near Wilmot, NH.

Homeless and sick - not easy to intervene with help

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Thu, 06/13/2013 - 21:08.

Recently, when I was in New York City, the most impressive experience I had was riding on the subway with a very ill fellow.   His right leg was wrapped in a black plastic garbage bag, his pant leg above the bag appeared wet with blood and body fluid, and he was rocking back and forth in the fetal crouch position without looking up.    The garbage bag "shoe" was leaking and the linoleum floor was moist...

Mystery Contract w/Tien, Death Cloud and more $$$ used to poison CLE residents

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 06/13/2013 - 08:28.

 It became apparent last night that the Jackson administration staged this whole contract with Peter Tien for kickbacks.  It was actually apparent before last night - Jackson and his willing conspirators at Sweeney-controlled council awarded a contract to Peter Tien--a contract that defies comprehension.

PostCard delivered to my house - Nearly 100 YEARS after it was mailed in 1914 - What a COOL surprise!

Submitted by Gone Fishin on Wed, 06/12/2013 - 21:35.


I received a super cool treat  in my mailbox today.  The absolute best mail that I have ever received.

A post card dated March 25, 1914 was addressed to my house and delivered today, Jun 12, 2013.

Nearly 100 years after the post card was mailed it was finally delivered - TO ME!

The post card has the original old one cent postage stamp that was unfortunately mostly covered up with a current 33 cent postage stamp:

Trash & the City - "Picking Up" by Robin Nagle - On the Streets & Behind the Trucks With the Sanitation Workers of New York

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Mon, 06/10/2013 - 00:38.

But the true dangers of the job are probably less well known. Nagle recounts how Michael Bloomberg, in discussing labor negotiations during his first mayoral campaign in 2001, suggested that “being a sanitation worker in this day and age is more dangerous than being a policeman or a fireman.” The comment was considered a gaffe, and the response was furious. But it turns out he was right.

Recovering Addicts.....a lifetime of sobriety ahead......with a history of mistakes behind you.....Prayers for loved ones....

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Mon, 06/10/2013 - 00:34.

It's hard to explain what brings a loved one to the point of hating you...when you're an addict. 

Addicts like to lie, steal, cheat, abuse others, violate anyone they can, and then manipulate every situation under the sun. 

Addicts often hurt anyone within an arms length with their self injurious behavior. 

Addicts take advantage of scenarios to fulfill their void. 

Addicts drive others over the edge with lists of distractions and stories to hide their behavior.

 Ground Hog Day in Cleveland...

Oh Beautiful Cleveland....

Like a set of Capped teeth; Our homes are decaying from the inside out....

We slap some pretty pretty paint on the outside while our roots rot from mold, deterioration, and vandalism.

Like a set of capped teeth; Our people are rotten inside out.......won't be til those caps fall off that we'll see their black insides.

Like a set of capped teeth; our hearts are diseased from the decay that infiltrates our bloodstream.

I lived to be alive in 1984 - you did too- and so did Mr. Obama

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 06/07/2013 - 21:39.

 Many of the caller's into Tom Ashbrook's "On Point" Public Radio program said they had no problem with being monitored - because "they had nothing to hide".

Ignorance is bliss - for right now, anyway.

Mr. Orwell's 1984 strikes me as a caption for understanding WWII and Mr. Hitler's and Mr. Stalin's pograms.

But that was over a half century ago.

U.S. government secretly collecting data on millions of Verizon users: (EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL secret goverments)

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Thu, 06/06/2013 - 19:21.

Under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court order, the Guardian reported, Verizon Business Services must provide the NSA “on an ongoing daily basis” with information from calls between the U.S. and overseas—as well as from calls made entirely inside the U.S. Calls made entirely overseas were not affected. It was unclear whether phones in other Verizon divisions—its regular cellphone operations, for instance—were similarly targeted.

ARREST ALL THE MIDDLE CLASS MOTHER FLOWERS........ FOR THE WORKING CLASS PROSTITUTES(WORKERS AT LARGE): The next time you run your mouth about some demographically disadvantaged person to make yourself seem like a big shot who thinks they know something about America---because you're a working class mother flower who doesn't pay attention to politics while you pay taxes----well----kiss my arse!

Another Middle Class mother flower talks shit about the little people and forgets about his public servant payroll costs.....keep drinking up buddy....keep avoiding to vote too....and by the way...don't hold your public leadership accountable; just pick on the welfare recipients at the bottom of the rung for all your troubles and disdainful misperceptions about how your tax dollars are being spent....meanwhile; the public servants pat you on the back, smile in your face, and keep sucking up the benefit packages---some are even double dipping...but how would you know????

Disrespecting our Military and Veterans.....an underground contemptuous attitude destroying the fabric of America...

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Sun, 06/02/2013 - 19:09.

I attended a military reunion recently. Thereafter; someone made a mockery of it. I thought about their idea of "what fun is?" ...and then I laughed at their pathetic (spoiled) existence as an American. To realize that there is such a lacking percentage of Americans who fail to recognize that they are a part of the problem and reasoning associated with why so many veterans commit suicide daily is the hugest sickening thing I have ever come to grips with in my life. You ungrateful, bullying jerks need your citizenship revoked.

I personally believe that this $75 Million of Grant appropriated funds is the key to understanding how and why Rokakis never got federal time....he had the pen and paper in hand to negotiate the local region getting these funds...and he used it as a tool to stay out of jail....GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD...divisively used to build MILLION DOLLAR HOMES for the POOR....wow........If you cannot read between the lines; shame on you!

I really like this photo of the interior of one of Gus Frangos' shell LLC properties.  Ceilings caving in with big holes in the walls and floors.  I am not sure what the hell one would call this - some kind of new yuppie art?

Gawker's "crackstarter" campaign - a brilliant viral idea - hat's off to John Cook and Nick Denton

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Thu, 05/30/2013 - 21:29.

 Ever since I was aware several years ago that Toronto's Mayor Rob Ford didn't like bikes on the streets of Toronto, I haven't liked Rob Ford.

So when Gawker initiated it's "crackstarter" (pun on Kickstarter) campaign in the middle of May to crowd source $200,000 to buy from some drug commerce folks the video which purportedly shows Mayor Ford smoking crack - I was impressed.

What a great idea!

Scrappers: Demolishing the insides of homes throughout Cleveland.

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Thu, 05/30/2013 - 01:49.

In 2013, our City seems to lag behind the world of information sharing regarding the criminal vandalism that goes with scrapping out houses in Cleveland by tenants, locals, and hungry addicts trying to sustain their expensive addictions with midnight thefts of copper pipes, stainless steel sinks, cast iron stack pipes, and wiring in the walls of vacant and abandoned homes. Property owners must have insurance to cover such vandalism above and beyond the basic fire policies of landlords.
