1 comment


Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you cancel that big Homecoming bash you were planning.

— Winning Homecoming Queen is neat. Being charged for providing alcohol to minors at the after-party you threw is not so neat. (Chronicle Telegram)

— John Kasich is doing a literal barnstorming tour to campaign for SB5. Like, in barns. In related news, PPP polling now shows goats have moved to 48-52 support/disapprove on the issue. (AP)

— Reports say 600 new jobs are coming to the Brookpark Ford plant. (WOIO)

— If you want to occupy Cleveland but can't occupy Cleveland, you can still help out Occupy Cleveland. Here's a list of things they need. Yes, it includes toothpaste. (Reddit)
