WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

State of the Movement

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 10, 2009
Considering the last 40 years of the gay rights movement is complicated. American society has come a long way, as evidenced by the numerous states that recognize gay marriage, the increasing protections gays have secured through legislation and the increasing success of reality TV shows about designers. (Thanks for the exposure, capitalism!)  

Poor Taste

Angela Poynter’s smarmy letter about Covington’s AmeraAsia restaurant (“Bizarre Experience,” issue of May 6) causes me to ask, “What, indeed, had you been smoking before eating there?” The lady must have either had a very unusual experience or been coming down with poor taste.  

Made by Women

Traditionally, as a woman, people expect you/me to make a lot of things: homes, babies, CityBeat Women’s Issues, etc. Thankfully, no one required me to get pregnant during the making of this special section. I probably would have said no. But since it’s already 2009, I figured we’ve been fighting for equality long enough that some of the social stigma has worn off of this Suzy Homemaker persona. Instead of revolting against her, we could probably recognize her, maybe even embrace her — but only if she said it was OK. Otherwise it’s sexual harrassment.  

Changing Grandma

Hey, I read Larry Gross' amusing "Lunch With Andrea" Living Out Loud column (issue of Nov. 26) and could not help but wonder: Was he really having lunch with my grandmother? She couldn't bring herself to vote for Barack Obama and, like Gross' friend, holds on to the belief that Republicans are looking out for her.  

'Good Government' Groups

Local nonprofit organizations take different approaches to election endorsements

Election Day approaches, and Tristate residents once again have multi-page ballots to consider. Who has time to fully research every issue and candidate, especially when ballots are getting longer, not shorter? A lot of nonprofit organizations do.  

Still Need Capable Journalists

I want to thank Joe Wessels for his well written and much needed column on today's newspaper journalism ('Read All About It While You Can,' issue of Oct. 1). My wife and I have seen a continuing decline in the quality and abundance of good journalism in newspapers today.  

'No One Owns Water'

Ohio Senate makes an issue out of property rights and water

0 Comments · Wednesday, October 8, 2008
Most people believe that government shouldn't control how you use your property, including water that runs under or through land you own. And most would agree the only role government ought to have is making sure one property owner doesn't use, pollute or damage those resources in a way that limits the rights of other property owners to them too.  

The Great Buckeye Clean Up

How Issue 2 will affect land and voters

0 Comments · Thursday, September 25, 2008
When there's no organized opposition to a constitutional amendment being placed on the statewide ballot - as is the case with Issue 2, which would continue the Clean Ohio program - the Ohio Ballot Board comes up with the reason to vote no. That's the law.
