Progressive energy, transit and economic ideas in Ohio look for boost from President Obama’s stimulus plan

1 Comment · Wednesday, January 14, 2009
As the Age of Barack Obama begins Tuesday with his inauguration as our 44th president, Ohio finds itself tilting at windmills in its quest to reach for the kind of energy-efficient, sustainable, economically healthy future that he believes will get the country out of its calamitous recession. The future could include airships.

Inauguration Day is finally upon us, fittingly coming at the end of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. Given the anticipation so many of us have about Barack Obama’s presidency, Tuesday truly will be the Day the Earth Stood Still. Do we still have the energy to get excited one more time about Barack Obama becoming the President of the United States? I say we should try.

Welcome to the 'Official Unofficial Barack Obama Mixtape'

I'm working on the mixtape of a lifetime. This is not, of course, a mixtape in the traditional Hip Hop sense, replete with recycled beats, guest appearances and endless self-aggrandizing promotional drops. My mix is a personal collection of tracks that I've chosen to capture the range of emotions I experienced as Barack Obama became our 44th President of the United States.

As Barack Obama prepares to become America's 44th president on Jan. 20, there are many who see something of themselves in his progressive, time-for-a-change victory against the ruinous Republican status quo. Those include visual artists working on the fringes, showing in urban co-op galleries with limited hours or in coffee houses and group shows at alternative spaces.

The song of the year is a transcendent 45-year-old Soul classic

When Aretha Franklin takes to the stage at President Barack Obama's inauguration on Jan. 20, it would be fitting if she were to serenade him and his guests with the late Sam Cooke's anthemic 'A Change Is Gonna Come.' During 2008, the song has come to represent not just Obama's quest to become President but also to bring about a better, post-Bush America once he's in office. And the success of his campaign has come to signify the whole arc of the civil rights movement, from the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott to the White House.   

McCain's Inaction Speaks Louder Than Words

If the way Sen. John McCain is running his presidential campaign in Greater Cincinnati is any indication, maybe it's a good thing that he's trailing Barack Obama in all the polls. McCain's judgment is under scrutiny again after he appointed Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters as his campaign's southwest Ohio regional chairman despite a record of questionable actions.

A local judge put the smack down last week after a defendant mumbled that it was bullshit that he'd have to stay in jail until his court date. Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Robert Ruehlman thought that an alleged Northside Taliband gang member saying "bullshit" in his courtroom was actually bullshit itself, so he sentenced him to six months.  

Obama Should Revive Federal Writers Project

1 Comment · Wednesday, December 3, 2008
In recent months, the government has pledged hundreds of millions of dollars to help out banks, investment houses, insurance companies and others ensnared by the mortgage-crisis-induced financial meltdown. Auto companies might be next. Our new president should consider reviving the Federal Writers Project, a Great Depression-combating New Deal program that put some 6,600 people, not all of them trained writers, to work.

We at WWE! don't always try our best. But our journalistic indifference results in harmless poop jokes and curse words, unlike Cincinnati Enquirer reporters, whose bad sense of humor often results in the public embarrassment of poor people.
