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.

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.

TV has taught America a lot about Cincinnati: 1970s sitcoms, '80s rollerblade dramas, '90s drug movies and the 2001 riots gave people a pretty good idea of what we're all about. Now the country has a new perception of us, as MTV's 'Taking the Stage' reality show made our School of Creative and Performing Arts seem like an exciting place full of complicated teenagers and real-life dance-offs.

Hamilton County GOP chairman Alex Triantafilou is a complicated man, and no one understands him but his man (Bill Cunningham). The liberal media today didn´t understand Triantafilou’s joke about a bald-from-chemotherapy Sen. Arlen Specter looking like the Dr. Evil character from Austin Powers.

Everyone knows what it's like to mess up a job interview by saying something stupid right at the end (you apparently are supposed to ask the interviewer questions about the position but not whether someone is going to watch you pee during the drug test). Miss California Carrie Prejean made a similar mistake during the Miss America pageant over the weekend.

When a government tries to tread on Americans, we don't take it lying down.

Cincinnati's local media got quite a treat today from angry Westside residents, who boarded up a Westwood house even though the city had already padlocked the doors. All the major TV news networks (plus The Enquirer, which let two of its reporters take breaks from tweeting to work on the story) accepted an invitation from a group called Westwood Concern to watch them board up a house that troublemakers regularly use to do bad things.

Cincinnati is a great place to live if you´re an educated young professional who works at Procter & Gamble (they have a gym in the basement!).

George W. Bush made some pretty important decisions in office: how to respond to 9/11, when to invade Iraq, how often to let Scooter Libby watch 'Ally McBeal' on TV. But we're about to learn a lot more about GW's thought process through his new book, 'Decision Points.'

Cincinnati might have finally broken ground on The Banks project, but by the time people get to live, work and play in the riverfront neighborhood it could be called something completely different. The Enquirer reported today that the possibility of changing the name arose when developers Carter and the Dawson Co. realized that Cincinnati had planned its new neighborhood between two sports stadiums and a highway and then named it after one of America’s stupidest industries.
