TUESDAY JUNE 25: An Ohio man’s recent trip to Michigan took a turn for the worse after he took some mushrooms and was found trespassing inside Ypsilanti Middle School. Responding officers noted that the man had ripped part of his penis off.

Don't Quit, Willie!

Bill Cunningham to seek advice on retirement because of Obama re-election

Voice of the common man, conscience of the American people, shepherd of men and 700WLW staple Bill Cunningham made an impassioned plea to his radio audience Nov. 2, saying if Mitt Romney lost the election, he would end his 30-plus year career in radio. “For nearly 30 years I’ve been the voice of the common man and conscience of the American people. I have led you and you’ve allowed me to lead you through thick and thin, through good times and bad, through recessions, depressions, wars, feasts and famines, through hurricanes, tornadoes and more,” Cunningham said. “If Mitt Romney does not win the election, I, Bill Cunningham, your shepherd, will quit radio on Wednesday Nov. 7. I’ll give it up. Continue my great television career and practicing law, but if my credibility means anything between you and me it means that you will listen to what I have to say.” Now, in the morning after, a time when we ourselves have often felt that “oh God, what have I done” feeling, we at CityBeat want to make our own impassioned plea: Don’t quit, Willie. Cincinnati needs you. You’ve always been a source of inspiration and wisdom to budding journalists and truth-seekers at CityBeat. Were it not for your Aug. 28, 2009 interview with Cincinnati Profile, we would never have known what “my baby daddy” was. We might forget what Barack Hussein Obama’s full name is were it not for your show. Without your faithful shepherding we’d go on believing the lie that things like assistance to the disabled and payments to workers who are injured on the job were good things! We’re glad to hear that you are backtracking on your Nov. 2 pledge planning to go on an intervention with Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Rob Portman to determine your future in radio. As you said on your show today, “every herd of sheep needs a shepherd,” and you’ve been our shepherd for more than 30 years. Please don’t “take [your] staff, crash in [your] skull and kill [yourself].” We, the bleating masses of Cincinnati, still need you.

Bill Cunningham: Where's Our [Expletive] Photo?!?

Seriously, Bill, we're feeling left out

Front page news at The Enquirer('s website): “Bill Cunningham and his TV show producers want you to like him… on Facebook."Media reporter John Kiesewetter today encouraged his readers to check out the new Facebook page of Bill Cunningham's TV show. Kiesewetter posted an awesome autographed photo that was sent to him. Here's what the giddy Kiesewetter wrote: "The Bill Cunningham Show wants you to get his Facebook page updates on the show, as it ramps up social media efforts for its national launch Sept. 17 on the CW Network (Channel 12.2). They wanted me to like him so much that his producers sent me this autographed photo.” Upon receiving a staff email titled "WHY IS THIS A BLOG" "HOW COOL IS THIS?", CityBeat editors and reporters hurried to our mailboxes to see who might have scored the promo of all promos. We were disappointed. And because we didn't get the photo we will not be “like”ing your page, Bill, and then hiding it from our timeline so our friends don’t find out.Maybe we'll go like the FB page of one of the people who sent these items we recently received and tossed into a large pile of shit we don't want: The Essential Games of the Chicago Cubs (four-disk set seems like overkill) Armywives episode 619 Syfy’s Boogeyman (a Syfy original movie) Fatal Honeymoon (premieres Saturday, Aug. 25 at 8 p.m.) Budz House starting the guy from the Miller High Life commercials Jodi Picoult collection (Salem Falls, Plain Truth and The Pact) Lifetime’s Surviving High School Kathy Griffin double feature called “Pants off and Tired Hooker” Barack Obama: From his childhood to the presidency Four IFC Blu-rays: ATM (“No warning. No control. No escape.”); Brake (“The only way out is to give in”); Kill List; and 4:44 Last Day on Earth.  A FaceOff makeup kit Twenty-three episodes of the 1937-74 series The Rookies Bob Dylan book called Forget About Today Two copies of The History of Us, a novel 
 
 

Sept. 14-20: Worst Week Ever!

If you were to drive north on I-75 toward Monroe during the past year, it’s likely that you noticed something missing along the way: highway expansion projects (check), multiple TGI Fridays locations (yup), anatomically correct horse statue (still there), giant Jesus statue signaling a touchdown in football (dude, where’d it go?!?). That’s because Touchdown Jesus was smote by god last year.

Bill Cunningham is still trying to do TV, even though he looks like a doll who's come to life to murder people. This report explains how his new spray tan, hair coloring and expensive suits have contributed.

Everyone Wins When a Newspaper Covers the News

Most Tristate households didn't buy a Sept. 19 Enquirer. Too bad. Even 10 days later, it's still a good buy. That Sunday's Local Life and Sunday Forum made it one of the best in memory and confirm Editor Tom Callinan's success at retaining a core of his best hard news reporters during brutal staff cuts. We need more of this kind of journalism from our Sole Surviving Daily because no one else has the resources.

The Enquirer today performed its daily newspaper version of multimedia progress, sending a reporter out with a hand-held thermometer on a 90-degree day to measure the heat. Prefacing his discoveries with the acknowledgment that only a fraction of people in Cincinnati didn't already know it was hot as hell outside, this intrepid layoff-dodger recorded such fascinating discoveries as a 113-degree metal picnic table and 133-degree asphalt.

If you were to believe 1980s stereotypes, college fraternities and sororities would be a bunch of mean rich kids adored by administrators even though they're total dicks to everyone else (you might also believe that red cars are cool and black men are scary). To reinforce that view last week Miami University put a third sorority on probation.

Showing his guts and integrity, Sherrod Brown — Ohio's Democratic U.S. senator — last week took issue with White House Chief of Staff (and all-around shifty a-hole) Rahm Emanuel after Emanuel said he didn't think the public option would survive in the Senate's health care reform bill.  

Zealots on the Right and the Left

Last week's controversy about a homeless camp at the Hamilton County Courthouse and the subsequent proposal to tax panhandlers reminded a history buff like me of Barry Goldwater. When he accepted the Republican Party's presidential nomination in 1964, he famously said, "Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice." Wrong.
