Good morning, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you get out your credit card to buy some crap from Sky Mall.

— A five-hour standoff on Cleveland's east side has ended peacefully. A 19-year-old punk held his mom and her boyfriend at gunpoint as their house was surrounded by police and SWAT teams. Kid probably just had a case of the Mondays. (WKYC)

— Emma Nahas, the young woman who recently drowned in Lake Erie, will be remembered with a memorial service today and tomorrow in Akron. (NewsNet5)
