  • Rick Uldricks

Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you remember that you left your umbrella in the car this morning.

— From over the weekend: The PD looks at the possible eventuality of Cuyahoga exec Ed FitzGerald in a statewide office. They call him a "big fish." Hopefully he's not a Asian Carp. Yes, fish jokes aren't our specialty. (

— Pro tip: Picking random mushrooms out of the ground might make you sick and not high. For instance, they might be poisonous. (Fox 8)

— Pics from the zombie walk in Lakewood. Until someone shows up as Bill Murray from Zombieland, we really can't support it. (Lakewood Patch)

— An Akron native who has written for Rolling Stone and chronicled Pearl Jam also holds the gig of booking the music form Jimmy Fallon's show. (The 330)
