Local angry guy Rich Hoffman should have stuck closer to the Glen Beck style that made Butler County Tea Partiers like him — too much Rush Limbaugh got the bull whip performer ousted today by the local organization he helped start. The Enquirer reported this week that Hoffman recently ranted on his blog ...
The NCAA Tournament comes around every
year, which is great for those of us who believe it to be the greatest
postseason event in sports — the first two days of which are
particularly dramatic and exciting.
The city of Cincinnati and Occupy protesters have reached a legal settlement that will erase criminal charges against protesters and designate part of Piatt Park a 24-hour public space for one year.
