So luxurious.
  • So luxurious.

Good morning, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you ponder the luxury of wide lanes.

— Ohio will begin experimenting with video conferencing for prison inmates and their families. No word yet on what corrections officers will do when everyone tries to have video sex via Skype or who will have to clean up afterwards. (Cleveland.com)

— There's been some mix-ups with the state appliance rebate program. Namely: some people are getting postcards informing them their rebates weren't valid. Actually, 20% of them. Sounds bad until you realize the government considers the Mendoza line success. (Ohio.com)

— There's a shortage of components used to make the paint for highway stripes. Quick solution: Pull a Kramer and make extra-wide lanes instead of regular ones. (Cleveland.com)

— Bad: Kids from rival schools brawl at the zoo. Good: They refrain from throwing poop at each other. (WOIO)
