Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's something to read while you ponder if society is ready to give you a 317th chance.

— The Man With the Golden Voice and a Taste for Grain Alcohol is back in the news again. Apparently he's on the straight and narrow this time. No really. Come on, stop laughing. (Columbus Dispatch)

— Cleveland ranked second least educated city in America. We're this close to giving up on specious internet rankings, but we're not there yet. (Fox 8)

— A 17-year-old was shot and killed and an 11-year-old girl was shot in the head last night. So sad. Two men, 17 and 19, have been arrested. (Cleveland.com)

— Esquire's profile of Jon Stewart from its upcoming issue. Hey, not everything has to be all-Cleveland all the time. We love us some Jon Stewart. (Esquire)
