— Pro-SB5 group uses image of police officer in their literature. Of course, it's the guy's not actually a real police officer. He's a stock photo model. Plunderbund digs up all his other stock photo work to see if those pics would be better suited for the group's mailings. (Plunderbund)
— The Ohio Statehouse is turning 150 and the Buckeye state is soliciting happy birthday messages. If Ohioans are anything like our parents, the messages will be: "Happy birthday. We thought we'd be grandparents by now. Thanks for nothing." (NewsNet5)
