Good morning, Cleveland. The Browns lost, here's some stuff to read that doesn't involve the Browns.

— David Reines was officially sworn in as the temporary auditor this morning. Barring something bizarre, he'll have the job until January when the position is dissolved. His first act should be removing those omnipresent Frank Russo stickers at gas stations. (Cleveland.com)

— Continental and United have agreed to keep 90% of their flights at Hopkins for at least two years under a new agreement. Richard Cordray and Frank Jackson had pushed for the soon-to-be-merged airline behemoth to make some sort of promise to stay in the Cleveland market. No promises were made about continuing to lose your luggage. (Cleveland.com)

— Violent crime is down in Ohio according to the FBI. That story a few weeks ago where the off-duty FBI agent shot the kid who tried to rob him should keep the numbers moving downward. (AP)

— Mayor Don Plusquellic says Akron is just as safe as it was before 40 cops got pink-slipped. Of course it is.(WOIO)
