Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while think of your own semi-witty phrase to put in this space .

— Who doesn't love a good cute cat story? No one. Except people who hate cats. A three-legged mute cat had been missing in Concord Township. Thankfully "Bodean" is safe and sound back at home now. (News Herald)

— A group of Armenians in Ohio, New York, and elsewhere bilked Medicare for over $163 million. Good at sweaters, good at crime, we'll see how good they are in prison. (AP)

— Lakewood Public Library is accepting submission from artists for a stand-alone piece of artwork that will decorate the front of its newly renovated building. Anyone else think it should just be a bar? (Lakewood Public Library)

— A study shows that rush hour in Cleveland is pretty tame compared to other big cities around America. We're pretty sure whoever conducted this study didn't sit on I-480 at 5 p.m. (News Herald)
