WHAT MODEL EVIL LEGISLATION LOOKS LIKE…

February 21st, 2015

You can read much more at The Writing On The Wal about Walart’s announcement Thursday morning to give half-a-million workers more take-home pay, but Ed Pilkington, writing in How a powerful rightwing lobby is plotting to stop minimum wage hikes for The Guardian, offers important backstory on the American Legislative Exchange Council’s campaign to spend […]

I’M BACK TO THE WRITING ON THE WAL

January 1st, 2015

As we count our blessings on this first day of the year 2015, remember that much of what we earnestly wish to hold tight to—our homes, our jobs, all that we hold dear—we have because union men and women suffered, fought and died for the rights of all.

WHERE I GO FROM HERE…

November 22nd, 2014

2004 me and 2014 me… I’ve invested a great deal of time in recent weeks considering the questions about the next part of my journey as a novelist and journalist, and where I want to take my blogs Have Coffee Will Write and The Writing On The Wal. Back in 2005, Cleveland alternate news weekly […]

AVOIDING THE PROBLEMS WITH BOYCOTTS…

July 22nd, 2014

Boycotts are always problematic, but they can be effective. Putting our money behind our personal convictions helped to bring down South Africa’s apartheid regime. But when does joining a consumer boycott of products or services produced by a specific company or originating in a given region of the world make sense? It’s a question that […]

SO, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT…?

July 6th, 2014

I finished reading Elizabeth Warren’s A Fighting Chance yesterday and what follows are passages that grabbed my attention. In the wake of the disappointing performance of President Barack Hussein Obama, I am hesitant to get behind yet another Democrat, but I have liked and been public in my support of Warren in the past and […]

WHICH IS MORE DISTURBING AND SAD…?

April 3rd, 2014

I’ve written fairly extensively on abandoned Walmarts, we have one in Cleveland Heights now, but Nancy Warner has captured a desolation and abandonment from a previous century and of a more deeply personal kind. Jordan G. Teicher writes: Wandering through the old buildings on the windy countryside was, for Warner, an almost spiritual experience. Warner, […]

WHY WE SHOULDN’T BUY FROM AMAZON…

February 23rd, 2014

I’ve devoted a great deal of time over the past few years to railing against Walmart, but in many ways Amazon is a greater problem because we never actually see the workers. PZ Myers over at Pharyngula links to a story at Salon this morning about the ongoing inhumane practices at Jeff Bezos’ company. I […]

WALMART COMING FOR CUYAHOGA COUNTY JOBS…

November 7th, 2012

Roldo Bartimole writes: One of the most despicable ad campaigns is being waged here by Walmart. You’ve seen the full-page ads in the Plain Dealer. One ran this week. Walmart lists a number of grocery items selected by Walmart. It is a full-page ad, hard to miss. The list gives prices on one side of […]

SHOULD WE CELEBRATE LESS BLOODY…?

August 18th, 2012

On Monday I had an excellent lunch with Cavana Faithwalker and his daughter at the Barroco Gill on Madison. The food was amazing (you have to try this place) but the conversation was more so. One of the topics we discussed involved a story Cav had sent me earlier involving farmers in India profiting from […]

SIX YEARS AND STILL CHUGGING ALONG…

August 2nd, 2012

Cavana Faithwalker writes: So we can still help this little guy keep “chugging along.” If you are not part of this you can do like Romney and retroactively hop on board… we know your heart was there from the beginning, we’ll paste you in the roll call… Often the greatest form of protest is revealed […]

COMING SOON TO SOUTH EUCLID…

May 31st, 2012

From The Elyria Chronicle-Telegram: ELYRIA — A foreclosure lawsuit was filed Tuesday against the owner of the River Street Square shopping center near Midway Mall in Elyria, which contains a former Walmart. The lawsuit was filed by U.S. Bank National Association against First Interstate Elyria Limited Partnership. The suit states the partnership owes $13.3 million […]
