So what do you guys think, should I run for Cuyahoga County Council District 7?

Submitted by Tim Russo on Thu, 12/17/2009 - 10:49.

 Ok, RealNEO, Issue 6 passed, and all sorts of political shenanigans have kicked off, as usual.  As you all know, I made some noise about running for city council this summer, but alas, it wasn't in the cards.  There's a new deck, dealing new cards, and now I'm looking hard at running for the newly created county council seat that includes Cleveland Wards 3 (downtown, Tremont, Ohio City), 7 (St. Clair-Superior), 8 (Hough), 9 (Glenville), and 12 (Slavic Village).

 I first wrote a blog post on BSB in March of 2008 titled "Someone is going to get hurt".  It was in response to the veiled race baiting of the heated presidential primary.

Scene editor Frank Lewis throws his own reporter under the bus in Coughlin sex scandal cover up

Submitted by Tim Russo on Wed, 04/15/2009 - 12:13.

I don't really know what to think about all this, but it really is instructive about just how lost today's MSM has become.  Total, mind blowing, cluelessness.  With a heavy dose of cowardice, arrogance, and stupidity thrown in.

UPDATE - Howard Hanna - it's Fox8's David Moss that approaches us to pimp mansion at 5x avg sale price - update Fox8 responds

Submitted by Tim Russo on Tue, 02/10/2009 - 09:51.

I've got a call in to David Moss of Fox8 to find out why he's calling around to real estate agents offering to pimp their unsold mansions on the air at 5x the avg sale price.  Seems like Moss is either (a) handing out freebies so potential ad clients will contract for ads, or (b) has the most tin ear in Cleveland TV.  UPDATE after the jump.

Breaking - flame war bloggers can read blogs

Submitted by Tim Russo on Mon, 02/02/2009 - 08:10.

My little experience with this "community" has been very telling.  I always knew that whenever someone disagreed with my opinion they'd reflexively go after me personally.  Now, I have proof that it's irrational, because the flame war bloggers here at REALNEO, led by the irrational, do it the first chance they get.  Thanks guys!
