Re: “Ringside Cafe

Great Place. Dive Bar Prices, great food. BUT not a Dive Bar. Good intimate venue for music and entertainment. Feels homey, like a neighborhood bar should!

Re: “The Burger Issue: The Basic Cheeseburger Taste Test

If it is not to late. You all got to check out Siri's in Gulfport. It does not have the word hamburger in their name. But Dang. They put out a real good one. They make their own bun , and grind their own meat. It is a real treat. Just say'in.

Re: “Stationed here: new WMNF station manager Craig Kopp wants to spread the word about community radio

I hate to say this. Broadcast Radio is Pretty much Dead. Cable TV is next. I am in my 60's and use my phone through the Bluetooth in my car to listen to whatever i want. From Podcasts to a WMNF app. I live in San Francisco, and here in Tampa. (Snowbird) I only listen to Broadcast Radio sometimes in a rental or somebody else's car. Oh No wait. That was Sirius Radio! Oops. If WMNF wants to reach more younger listeners they must emphasize the other digital formats to get into the younger peoples earbuds on their Apple/Android devices. (no android app last time I checked) When I sit on a bus in SF, I sometimes listen to the MNF on their app, or download podcast of Ira's Event Horizon, etc. Plus the station has become more wonkier, less party than I remember. I contribute through the Circle of Friends, a monthly draw through direct deposit. I believe in, and love the Station. But! They got change up their game to reach the younger demographics. We Boomers are starting to die off. I believe that we are the major contributors to the station. I am listening to MNF online through my home computer as I type this. Man, I Love you GUYS!!!

Re: “Tim Schock says it's time for new Republicans on Hillsborough County Commission

We need to get the cars off the road. We need both ferries and light rail to accomplish this. The more you widen the interstates and other roads, they will just create a larger "rush hour". Widening never keeps up with growth. Lite Rail, and ferries are greener, safer, and just make more sense, than more roads. The proposed ferry lauded by candidate Pat Kemp would go from Riverview to South Tampa for the military base personnel, would cut back a hour + drive to 1/2 an hour. Lite Rail would pollute a lot less than personal single car, one person commuters, and be cheaper for them. Yeah Yeah you have to more together with your schedule, etc. But the conservatives generally make it about them and not the greater good.

Re: “Mitch Perry Report 6.27.14: Medical marijuana backlash builds nationally

We need every vote out there to get this constitutional amendment passed. We need a no hold s barred reaching out to everybody. IF you want this law to pass in FL. If you are not registered to vote and assume this law is going to pass. Think Again! Get your derriere up and out of that couch cushion, register, vote! If You are disinterested in the rest of the ballot, You do not have to vote for anything on it except for Amendment 2. It would nice though if you researched the other issues, the candidates and voted on them also. Nuff Said.
