A New Cold War?

I don’t know about you, but for those of us who grew up during the age of the “Cold War” find the conditions in Russia under the leadership of Putin to be frightening. Putin is one of those personality types that seem to breed in European and Middle Eastern Countries. The same egotistical, self-centered, despots …

That being said, the …

Proudly May She Wave

I am outraged by a recent court decision that ruled that a Northern California High School acted appropriately when it ordered students to wear their shirts inside out. The shirts in question sported the American Flag and the school officials were concerned that the display of the flag would incite violence between American and Mexican …

Cranley’sDo Over

John Cranley

When John Cranley was elected to Mayor he jumped into the mix with both feet. He was making Mayoral decision even before he took the oath of office, as we saw with the dismissal of then City Manager Milton Dohoney, and he announced his intent to appoint Willie Carden to the job of City manager. …

It’s All About The Streetcar

No Streetcar

In last Saturday’s blog article I predicted that Cincinnati City Manager should start looking around for a new gig. I felt certain that with the changing of the administration that this was inevitable. I was very surprised that it occurred with the rapidity that it did. What I don’t know is whether the tone of …

Facebook and Politicians

About a month ago I reported in this blog on the social media acumen of the currently seated City of Cincinnati Council members and the two mayoral candidates. The point was to demonstrate if those politicians were aware of the reach of social media, and were they inclined to use it as a way to …

Screw The People?

I for one have had it up to here with the shenanigans going on in Washington. We are supposed to have a representative form of government. That means the people we elect are supposed to represent our interest in Washington. I do not think that is happening, do you? I think the people we elected …

Silly Season Is Here!

Political Race

This November there will be both a mayoral and a council election. A few weeks back I saw my first political ad for the season. It was an ad for John Cranley and the entire add was dedicated to bashing his opponent, Roxanne Qualls. I hope this does not set the tone for the entire …

Bias Scandal Rocks City Hall

Council Chambers
