Oh. Serial killer/rapist. In Cleveland. Apparently a sausage factory can only disguise the smell of dead body for so long. Also proof that I can never retire my Fuck Ohio icon. It gets too much usage.
I obviously didn't leave Cleveland a moment too soon. Apparently the police are venturing out to Warren and Youngstown to see if they can get the bodies identified.
In somewhat less exciting news, I am getting the cough from hell. And I know the lady at the DMV was coughing up a storm yesterday. This wouldn't bug me so much if swine flu wasn't running through Madison like none other. Time for some hot tea, possibly a hot bath.
And more time to be relieved that I'm no longer in Cleveland. God DAMN.Welcome to the national news, Cleveland. And so not in a good way.
In political news, mostly that I just care about:
Maine repealed their legalization of same-sex marriage, because California is a good state to idolize. Also they fucking suck. They did legalize medical marijuana. So getting high is more important than giving your state's residents equal rights.
NY-23 has gone to a Democrat for the first time since...I think someone in the forum said 1880? That can't be right, since districts get redrawn every 10 years because of the census, that thing Michele Bachman's protesting because she is batshit. Whatever, a long fucking time.
NJ elected a GOP governor. NJ has also had 8 governors in the last nine years, so why people are in a frenzy about this one is beyond me. Never been to NJ, would you believe I have no desire to ever go there?
Kalamazoo, which is still holding the title of favorite city I've ever lived in, passed an ordinance banning discrimination based on sexual orientation.
Geauga County, where I just left, has failed for the 3285712th time to pass the school levy. It failed by eight votes. I think it failed by seven votes last spring. I moved out and didn't vote this year, so what, two people voted no who didn't? I bet dad and Kevin on the two new no-votes. Ledgmont spent an assload of money building a new schoolhouse that could have held my elementary school, which was 500+ students. How many students in Ledgmont? 80. No joke. Wonder why they're having money issues. It's just a matter of time before the state steps in and dissolves it. For myself, I just can't fund stupidity like that. Dissolve it, and we'll pay Chardon or Madison's school taxes, whichever. At least the kids might get a marching band with more than four people. In any case, no matter how many times Montville Township runs this ballot measure, they're not changing anyone's mind.
Ohio will be building casinos in their four major cities. This will do nothing to improve the scenery in any of these towns, and let's face it, Toledo could really use the help. Only uglier city in Ohio is Youngstown. Casinos in Detroit obviously didn't revitalize that town, so I have a huge bucket of salt for everyone saying they'll revitalize Ohio. For the most part, I don't care.
All right, I'm out. I'll be glued to a news source for next year's election night, guaranteed. ^_~
