How in the world did this end up in the vindicator? Slow news day...indeed.

Listen, im not a homophobic, I could care less who or what people do...However, why let that be ALL you are about? Can you not be a mother, a father, a sister, a friend, a parade goer, who just happens to be gay? Not a gay mother, gay father, etc...I don't live my life according to what sex im attracted to, I don't join clubs, parades, groups, go to concerts, get jobs, based on who I would like to be with. I understand they feel oppressed. I understand they want equal rights. However, is that all they are? Do you have to constantly make that the issue? I am tired of being overwhelmed by it. Do what you want, who you want, however you want. I couldn't care less. Just be who you are, no need to shout or proclaim or protest or single yourself out. Geesh.

I live on the East side, and I love it here. Granted, im over by the hubbard line, but still. Its quiet, no problems. People maintain their homes very nicely here, no riffraff or people wandering around aimlessly, as it was on the south side. Nice new school buildings. The Lincoln Knolls plaza is almost fully occupied, its actually gotten a lot nicer than it used to be. The flea market is a wonderful place to go during the summer. I enjoy living in a spot where I have nice vigilant neighbors who keep up their houses, and yard. I am very happy here, and am very glad I left the south side. Point is, if you don't live in a spot, you cant really know about what goes on. Making broad assumptions about an entire side of town based on what you see in the news is a foolhardy practice. I love that I live out in the boonies of the YO...No complaints.

Makes you wonder, since hospitals are not only the biggest users of the soap, and also the biggest havens for MRSA and VRE....

bman, there is a time and a place for your ramblings, this post is neither nor. I cannot stand people who come on stories like this to use it as a pulpit to preach their political views. Im glad the little boy with have a special night, hes been through too much already in his young age. Thank goodness he is on the mend...

I wondered where all the gunshots were coming from! I was picking the kids up at school at MLK and could hear them...shame on them, its called a wildlife preserve for a reason...ugh. I abhor hunters!

This is a bad stretch, when I worked at a nursing home right there, every morning pulling out to head home was a nightmare. The road is also very narrow, so good luck when the person ahead of you starts spinning and sliding, theres nowhere to go!

It was lovely approaching my childrens school yesterday, and wondering why no kids, no bus drivers or anyone was around. Then they announced the school was in lockdown. This is only the first time this year, how many more? The southside is a dangerous place, especially for all the little ones who have to walk, and most ALONE...I think its about time for me to take my kids out of there. Sad as it is, you cant change a lifestyle or way of thinking, and that's whats killing Youngstown.

Start closing stuff up at dusk...nothing good happens after dark in the YO.
I think its an awesome idea, and that not only the childless and non pregnant people should have to adhere. If you have more children than you can afford, and we are paying for everything, (we being the taxpayers), why shouldn't you have to contribute in some way? I thought this was already how it was...Make them do community service, or job classes, or something, so maybe just maybe, one day they'll want to move up in the world. Im sorry, if you have 4 kids and get nearly 900 a month in food stamps I cant see how losing 45 dollars a month is going to kill you. Learn how to budget, use coupons, buy generic, you know, like all us regular non-entitled people have to on a daily basis. Quit living beyond your means. Take advantage of the programs in place, the job training you can have paid for, the college/tuition assistance... Its supposed to be a hand up no hand out...Now its a lifestyle...
