Golden State Warriors, not San Francisco Warriors.  They could move to Bakersfield.

The originally were the San Francisco Warriors and played in San Francisco, in the Cow Palace (actually in Daly City).   I guess they changed the name after they started playing in different venues in the area.

One idea during the Golden State rename was they would split "home" games between Oakland and San Diego.

Even if zoning changes are made to allow these tiny houses, I'm sure they're still going to be a pretty niche product.  I don't think they'll drastically affect the number of people buying and rehabbing existing housing stock.

Mass Transit / Re: Ohio transit funding situation
« Last post by clvlndr on Yesterday at 09:48:22 PM »
^I'm talking about the pols.  The first 3 words in the previous article about transit cuts are "House Republicans oppose ..." There has been consistent, and justified, concern and complaint about Ohio's pitifully small transit funding by the state.  And with Republicans in control, the situation is not only NOT getting better, it's getting worse...  John Kasich, who now is trying to repackage himself as a moderate per his presidential aspirations, killed the job-creating, economy/people movement-enhancing Amtrak 3-Cs rail project shortly after taking office in 2010.  The now sadly gravely ill ex Cong. Steve LaTourette, a moderate Republican, favored Amtrak and gave up fighting the right-wing Ohio Republican onslaught on, among other things, urban issues and transit.  LaTourette grew frustrated and opted out.

It's pretty clear its a partisan issue.  Republicans are transit oppose-rs/destroyers all around the nation, but particularly in Ohio.... But for folks to say it's both parties, is a cop-out and it only serves to keep Republican regressive ideals on these issues, firmly entrenched.  -- have Democrats not been as strong in opposition?  Yes, but that's exactly what I'm talking about... Somebody's got to take a stand.

... crickets... Are people really afraid of Republicans as it seems?  Just curious. 

Do you mean Republican voters or Republican politicians? Or both?

I'm pretty dissatisfied with both parties on the transit front. However, I think once the streetcar shows itself to be successful in the Republican bastion that is Cincy, you're going to hopefully see more public support for similar investment in the other C's.

^the other thing about tiny houses is that they work well in places like Seattle or other coastal cities with insanely high costs of living.  Cleveland is not one of those cities.  $80k can get you a pretty solid home

This is a valid point. But I was thinking, while Cleveland doesn't not have that insane high cost of living, it does have a great deal of divergence in livability throughout.

I'd much rather live in a small house or micro apartment in a vibrant neighborhood vs. a cheaper, larger, nicer house in a struggling area.
