Strippers at local political fund-raiser - "A golf outing for the Lucas County Democratic Party landed in the rough after outraged elected officials saw strippers liberally volunteering at the party's annual fund-raiser.

Smoking only costs $40 a pack if you include all cost. - See, it's cheap.
So $4/pack is a freaking bargain. Like you're only paying 10% of the real cost to enjoy them rich noxious nerve gases. Yum!

SmokeChoke: Ohio Smoking Ban Violator Registry - A couple weeks ago, I was sitting in Brewed Awakenings trying to enjoy a cup of coffee, but there was a lady chain smoking in the other room using an ashtray provided by Brewed. It struck me that an online registry of smoking ban violators would be helpful to avoid situations like that. - More>>

Imports, Technology, and Increased Landfill Space. - So I just got a new laptop because it only cost $550 for a new one as opposed to repairing my 4 year old laptop for $200. My 4 year old laptop had everything I needed, and I would have been completely content repairing it, but mathematically it didn't make sense to repair. - More>>

Cosi defeated :( - I know that this was a very hot topic, but COSI's levy was defeated barley. What does this mean for Toledo and its residents? I think that COSI is a great asset to Toledo and we should all try to support it! What do you guys think of this turnout on that issue?

'Religious leaders rip slots, casinos' - "Cleveland Bishop Richard Lennon and the rest of the state's Catholic leaders declared that a November ballot proposal that would bring slot machines to seven Ohio racetracks and two sites in downtown Cleveland is not in the state's moral, social or economic interests." It makes sense that the Catholics would oppose Issue 3. Afterall, slot machines in Ohio could hurt the Catholic church's bingo gambling revenue.
