Free Markets

0 Comments · Wednesday, March 11, 2009
Kevin, you can choose whatever side you want on the debate and you can even charge Republican politicians with being unnuanced thinkers and knee-jerk cries of “socialism” (or “fascism” from the left) or being mindless, but whatever flaws the free market may have it really does provide more nuance and choice to the individual than any healthcare system dreamed up by even the most sophisticated policy maker.  

Look Back, Then Forward

I always look forward to Larry Gross' Living Out Loud columns. Like a lot of them lately, "Mandolin Rain" (issue of Feb. 25) was a moving story. I can't help but notice that in many of Gross' columns he's looking back at his life in trying to move forward.

Kevin Osborne's interview with Greg Harris, newly appointed to Cincinnati City Council ("At Home on City Council," issue of Feb. 11), included a few incorrect or misleading statements.

Empowering City Neighborhoods

My hero in the Cincinnati world of responsible journalism has been CityBeat until I read the article “Being Neighborly” (issue of Jan. 21), which contains many inaccuracies and misleading statements about Invest in Neighborhoods (IIN).  

Religion at Work

Kevin Osborne's Porkopolis column on the Founding Fathers' religious beliefs is excellent as well as little known.   

Streetcars Drive Economy

0 Comments · Wednesday, January 14, 2009
The streetcar proposal is an economic driver for our city. Businesses will want to locate on the route, and citizens will want to live close to it too. The addition — I should say reintroduction — of streetcars will be a boon for visitors to our city by connecting our various destinations on an easy-to-use and well-laid-out route.

Thanks for the article about Dr. Richard Wyderski and his support for medical marijuana via Ohio Senate Bill 343 ('Docs for Dope,' issue of Dec. 17). He has thousands of other doctors on his side.
