McDonalds in University Heights

I can't wait for the new McDonalds to be built where the Waterway carwash wasn't.

Why just last Saturday I took myself into a golden arches for a cup of coffee. It was so entertaining counting the cars that lined up from the drive through window out into the street for several blocks.

It took me back to the days when I so much enjoyed counting railroad cars at crossing gates, one hundred eighty five . . . one hundred eighty six . . . you get the picture.

I know the economy sucks, and we need cash . . . But wait, wasn't this a failed effort at Cedar and Lee years ago? Didn't the Police post a guard in that McDonalds to keep the peace?

Listen! If you really want to raise lots of cash for a tapped-out city budget? How about a beverage store that sells drugs? Oh, wait we already have those . . . CVS and Walgreens!

Cleveland Heights resident Ralph Solonitz (artist/writer) was born in 1947 in Munich, Germany, the son of Holocaust survivors. He began doodling very early on . . . first in German and a few years later in English. His father gave him motivational advice . . . "stop your doodling, you are vasting time and vill amount to nutting." Fast forward 55 years, thousands of dollars in therapy and he still can't stop doodling.
