The Cash for Clunkers program ended at 8 p.m. Aug. 24. It is survived by thousands of appreciative middle-class auto buyers, several hundred thousand tons of smashed SUVs and dozens of stimulus programs that no one has heard of.

Living in a recession is hard. We at WWE! have already sold a kidney to pay for ramen and Playboy, and we can still only afford to drink Natty Light (in bottles when we feel like classing it up or we have a lady friend over).

There are many things that American politicians work hard to avoid — divisive issues, unprompted interviews and admitting how much their shiny shoes cost are high among their fears. But recent health care legislation has brought yet another controversial topic to the forefront: abortion (!).

If Mayor Mark Mallory isn't an expert on streetcars after visiting Portland, Ore., last week, then Michael Jackson isn't dead and Jeff Berding is respected by his peers. The Enquirer reported today that Mallory, fresh off a field trip to America's leading producer of progressive mass transit and Indie rocker boners, said that if Cincinnati's proposed anti-streetcar ballot measure passes that it will be an end to local mass transit (including Midwest commuter rail) forever.

If your favorite part of a cheese coney isn't the cheese and the chili, then you're not a real Cincinnatian. Similarly, if you don't think Pete Rose is the ultimate symbol of hard work, dedication and fortitude, then you're kind of a dick.

South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint today loaded up his red, white and blue bus and took off on a book tour for his new anti-socialism release, 'Saving Freedom.' The book warns of a socialist movement occurring so slowly that no one has noticed it, with consequences as dire as those seen in the 1993 movie 'Jurassic Park,' which had a similarly foreshadowed plotline.

You know the economy is in bad shape when rich people start tightening up the purse strings (though we don't really feel it ourselves until the money stops trickling down to us). The Enquirer reported today that the Village of Indian Hill, known for its lavish estates and for never having interstates constructed through its lush wilderness, has decided to postpone $1.2 million worth of capital projects.

Those of us who have frequented West Chester in the past to purchase geometrically shaped light fixtures know how welcoming the township can be. That's why we were surprised today to hear that leaders there are considering converting the township into a city, which would give them the ability to impose a 1 percent income tax. Critics say that will upset members of the Cincinnati Tea Party because they've never had to protest in their own neighborhood before.

Those of us who received frantic text messages reading the likes of "MJ died today … FUCK!" were surprised and relieved to find out later that basketball legend Michael Jordan was, in fact, alive and well. The news wasn't so great for Pop icon Michael Jackson, who died suddenly at his Los Angeles home at age 50 and received hours of TV news tributes, tweets and descriptions of his "troubled" life in his honor.

Americans understand that there are times when you just have to do what’s right — we’ve all known someone who stepped up and helped an old lady cross the street or gave Ken Broo directions to the nearest Chipotle at some point in time. Barack Obama made a similar gesture today by extending benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees.

People from the Midwest already know how liberal Californians are — we hear all about their medical marijuana and interracial relationships on the news. But San Francisco is about to take it to the next level this fall with the strictest recycling rules this side of the Atlantic.  

June 3-9: Worst Week Ever!

Are you tired of paying service fees to print out a concert ticket on your own computer? Do you think it's unfair when the ATM and your bank charge you for taking money out of the wrong machine? Have you ever let someone kick you in the nuts for no reason?

Socialist governments that want to mortgage our children's futures aren't the only entities finding symbolic messes from protesters on their front steps these days. The Oxford Press today reported that a group of health care-reform activists delivered a couple of sacks of metaphorical dirty laundry to U.S. Rep. John Boehner's office.  

Another Six Days of Horse Talk and Optional School

With Ohio’s economy struggling and the state budget looking like the Green Party’s checking account balance, there’s still one politician willing to use horse-inspired metaphors to call on elected officials to increase the state’s revenue.

There’s only one American demographic that’s been only mildly affected by the recent recession and credit crunches, and that’s college students — they’ve actually benefited lately from the drop in gas prices and Domino's deciding to sell two pizzas in one box.
