WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Worst Week Ever!: May 1-7

0 Comments · Wednesday, May 8, 2013
WEDNESDAY MAY 1: People love to complain, and one of the old standbys when doing so is feeling tired. In response to everyone always whining about feeling tired or hungover, many food companies have begun producing snacks with caffeine added to them.  

June 1-7: Worst Week Ever!

We were happy today to have one more reason not to go to Amelia: We prefer to avoid places that don’t have police forces. Village leaders have already asked the county sheriff if he will help out if any teenagers figure out that the high school’s football helmets look like anarchy signs and start freaking out.  

One Last Despicable Act

How a person reacts in adversity reveals a lot about his or her character. In a move reminiscent of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Cincinnati City Councilman Jeff Berding announced last week that he was resigning soon, despite having another year left on his term. As the reason for his departure, Berding said he needed to focus on his day job as sales and marketing director for the Cincinnati Bengals. Berding’s given reason probably is true, but it’s only part of the story.  

Jan. 5-11: Worst Week Ever!

NASA today made an announcement that even the most jealous scientists recognize as a big deal: the finding of the first rocky exoplanet outside our solar system. Speaking to the American Astronomical Society in Seattle, veteran exoplanet hunter Geoffrey Marcy called the discovery “a planetary missing link,” “a bridge between the gas giant planets we’ve been finding and the Earth” and “fucking super unbelievable.”  

Changes at Streetvibes to 'Broaden the Reach of the Paper'

0 Comments · Monday, December 20, 2010
After Streetvibes Editor Greg Flannery left over what I will call irreconcilable differences with Josh Spring, executive director of the sponsoring Greater Cincinnati Coalition of the Homeless, Spring says "the paper will play its role" in Coalition battles to house the homeless and oppose gentrification. Staff meetings will include new Editor Jennifer Martin, and then her job, he says, "is to do what an editor does."  

Dec. 1-7: Worst Week Ever!

It's likely that if you're not from the East Side then you probably reacted to today's news of Sarah Palin appearing at an 11 a.m. book signing at the Harper's Point Kroger by saying, “So what? I was at work. Also, where the hell is Harper's Point?” It turns out that a lot of people know the answer (and had the day off), as about 200 showed up to see the former Alaska governor sign copies of her new book.  

In Defense of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks

2 Comments · Wednesday, December 1, 2010
WikiLeaks recently obtained more than 251,000 secret diplomatic messages from U.S. embassies worldwide. In what's been dubbed "the Sept. 11 of world diplomacy," the latest leaked documents show the candid, private and unflattering assessments of world leaders by U.S. officials and the pressure tactics they use behind-the-scenes to achieve their goals. Tea Party queen Sarah Palin says WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should be "pursued with the same urgency we pursue Al-Qaeda and Taliban leaders" and detained or assassinated.  

Media Sloppiness Leads to Guilt by Association

0 Comments · Tuesday, November 23, 2010
Why associate a homicide with an apparently unrelated business? A recent Enquirer story said an Over-the-Rhine shooting was "a block south of Findlay Market." The headline said it was "near Findlay Market." Nothing in the story said or indicated the victim or shooter had anything to do with Findlay Market except proximity. Would The Enquirer say "a block south of P&G" in a story that doesn't tie a homicide to the corporation? Not likely.  

God, Geese and the Rodeo Clown Save the Nation

What a monumental letdown. For a person who once described himself as a “rodeo clown” and regularly provides the type of high drama on his nightly TV show that would make the unhinged Howard Beale proud, Glenn Beck's much-hyped “divinely inspired message” to the American people landed with a thud this past weekend.
