Bishop Murray doesn't sound like he's following the path of the new Pope at all. You would think he would see this as a participation in white flight and classist behavior. Clearly he's motivated more by $$$. Not what Jesus would do.

So many silly low-intelligence people on the Vindy comment threads.
There is already a bodega downtown, selling liquor and wine and beer and sandwiches. It's called Downtown Circle.
They do a good business. No crime or theft problems.
So the dumby dumb dumbs in here should probably go put their thumbs up their butts.
Oh wait. That's where they already are.

Kasich is a loser. He thinks people are dumb enough to play the game of Hate the Public Worker or Hate the Teachers, instead of looking in his direction back in Columbus, where he's the one running the game, turning people against each other while he picks our pockets. Continues to take our tax money but not to return it in the form where it would do our public any good. Then forces us to raise levies to pay more on top of what he's raked in behind his desk. I can't wait to cast my vote against this foul man in his re-election bid.

He would like to see 5 million in the endowment fund. Sounds like he's telling the Richie Richs who want him to move the school to put their money where their mouths are. Pay up, and then we'll move.
That's a decent maneuver on his part, if in fact it's a maneuver.
If he's just bluffing and they move anyway, it was all for show for the public to make it look like he cared.

uncommonsense, otter is right, actually, and you're version of YSU is outdated. Many people come to YSU from all over the states and from other countries at this point, but I'm sure you don't have that data in front of you and are just speaking out of what it used to be.
In any case, YSU is doing nothing different here than any of the other state universities that have been shafted by Governor Kasich in his defunding of higher education. Like Grilli said in the article above, university's run on two things: state funding and tuition. If state funding declines, they need to make up that loss elsewhere. Predominantly it means a raise in tuition. If it isn't that, they'll find other ways to charge to accrue the money they need to operate. It's simple math.

zz3, how stupid of you. E. LeClede and Blueberry Hill? Stop referring to bad neighborhoods to justify your prejudice. This is a place going in the downtown, which is one of the safest downtowns of any city in the state of Ohio. And THAT IS a fact.

Oh, here is behind-the-times DeSouza once again, arguing from a series of conditions that made sense about 8 to 10 years ago and further back, yes, but clearly he hasn't been speaking with the younger generation of Republicans and Libertarians who strongly believe--even those Christians among them--that same sex marriage should be legal.
Your argument is old, and would only make sense a decade or more ago, DeSouza. Get out of your old man Vindy think-tank office and actually talk to the generation of 45 years olds and down. They're making decisions now as the old tightwads continue to die off.

walter-sobchak, why don't you also drink the fracking fluid halliburton says is drinkable now.
We need water to live more than heat. Uneducated industry lapdog. How much you have invested?

"over-educated and barely literate" kurt? Really? I would think someone who is educated, period, is literate.
I think you don't understand the term "literate" and are perhaps under-educated. That's why you don't understand the terms you are using, as many illiterate people tend to do.
