Slow Sunday

So here I am, feeling tired and hung-over. And I have so not had any alcohol since the hot-chocolate-with-caramel-liqueur that my husband made for me New Year's Eve. I hope I can work things out for me from a physical standpoint.

If Cleveland is the poorest major city in the nation, why are we the first city in America where the top three news stations broadcast in HD? I assume there must be a market, as in enough people in the Cleveland viewing area have HD, wouldn't you think? I guess we're really poor, because we don't have HDTV. To be honest, I could think of a lot of other things to spend my money on first.

Looking forward to starting a new week and getting out of this weekend rut.

Perhaps there are enough government checks going around to low-income housing that people can spend money on HDTV instead of their house. :)

Yes, parts of the Eastside of Cleveland is one of the poorest sections of any major city. The population count for those in poverty in that section of town is larger than the wealthier folks that live on the Westside and in the Heights and other fancy schmancy areas...

That is a rude comment about people using government checks to buy tv's instead of taking care of their homes. My guess is that they are more interested in keeping food on the table and the heat and hot water on than buying a fancy tv.

You're a little rude yourself, Mr. Anonymous. If that is your real name...

I think Mr. Anonymous should keep his comments to himself. What do you think?

Anonymous can say what he wants, but rudeness and stereotypes without facts won't cut it around here...

Anonymous,

Can I tell you how many brand-spankin' new Cadillacs and SUVs I see in driveways where the vehicles are worth more than the property?

And the houses are in worse shape, too.

The comment is only rude because it's reality and you don't like it.
