One thing's sure - Youngstown will never be taken over by majority opinion. If division ensures democracy, you're the emblem of the American way.

Eliminating ETS is a good idea, unless students protest. Are there any retired professors students would fight for?

Reading the Vindy posts on quite a few stories over the years I've noticed that few positive stories receive any posts at all. But as soon as there's a negative opening, someone like thirtyninedollars steps in to present the sarcastic view. Tressel has motivated more young people than you have discouraged, thirtynine. Who would elect you president of anything?

Maybe the next Car Talk. Congratulations!

He's right. Youngstown has it all. Perfect for reality TV and filming. Add the talent at the Dana School and you can add musicals to the products that can be offered from here. Always been a very rich city. Main thanks to Volney Rogers.

Dr. Khawaja was the perfect academic administrator. So many deans and tenured professors could improve YSU for the students if they'd only follow his traits of understanding, dedication, humor and service instead of aggrandizing their pensions. Maybe Tressel can inculcate some of Khawaja's values in the faculty... if they stop dismissing him as just a coach.

Remembering the parishioner at my church whose chihuahua took communion every Sunday morning. Or the Lassie-look-a-like who comforted the distraught at the Sunday evening meditation service. Dogs, the perfect teachers of humanity. And Dwight, I've been allergic to some people in the workplace, and nobody expects them to leave.

Great news for the city as Idora and YNDC march on. The usual naysayers are speechless, I see. You must feel lost when you can't disparage everything about Youngstown.

Maybe Tressel can rescue Youngstown instead of just YSU.

Unbelievable! Maybe residents aren't old enough to remember the mill mentality that caused the rivers to catch fire. Now you (probably suburbanites) want to poison your neighbors with methane and contaminated water. Why not lobby to reintroduce asbestos, DDT and lead paint, there's probably some job creation in that.
