A behind-closed-doors maneuver by some Cuyahoga County Democrats isn’t sitting well with advocates for reform. We’ll ask our panel of journalists to assess the possible fallout. Also, more from Governor-elect Kasich on where he wants to take the state government, while outgoing Governor Strickland talks to the White House about his future. We’ll discuss those and other top stories of the week tomorrow journalists' roundtable, at 9 on 90.3.

Chris Quinn, Metro Editor, The Plain Dealer
Karen Kasler, Bureau Chief, Statehouse News Bureau

My wife and took a train trip from San Francisco to Cleveland 2 years ago and loved it. A train system linking Ohio cities is a great idea. It’s so sad that some of our political leaders can not see a broader vision for this state.

Marilyn from Westlake 9:32 AM 12/10/10

You have struck a note with me—we need better LOCAL public transportation.  I live in Westlake and often wish for a convenient public transportation option downtown.  My choices are 1)drive to the Westlake park n ride, but ONLY during morning and evening commute hours; 2) drive nearly 12 miles to the Triskett Rapid station or 3) walk or drive to Crocker Park and take 2 buses from there.  Is it a wonder that we don’t use public transportation?  I also vote for the east-west route Toledo-Buffalo NOT in the middle of the night!

Brian from Cleveland/Ohio City 10:35 AM 12/10/10

I strenuously refute Chris from Lakewood’s comment that his “blood boils” when he hears that the wealthy don’t pay enough taxes.  The millionaires and billionaires that he is enthrall to don’t get there on their own.  They require working class people earning lower middle class wages, providing the services or making the products, thus enriching them disproportionately.  They also disproportionately benefit from the infrastructure, which is’nt free, and costs billions to install and maintain,as well as from the natural resources that belong to us all.  To whom much is given, much is expected, right, Chris?
