I pay little attention to the teevee, so I had no idea Bengals player Chad Ochocinco is on “Dancing with the Stars” this season which prompts the question—why?
In this report, it states that Chad doesn’t look like he’s having a good time and he’s not doing all that well either.
Message to Chad. . .
Really, Chad, why put yourself through this silliness? Stick with football, man—you’re good at that.
Regardless, I do take comfort in the fact that at least you’re doing better than Kate Gosselin.

When it comes to drinking, I’m finding out more and more stuff you shouldn’t be doing. I wrote about this in CityBeat some weeks ago, but at this point, I could easily do a “Part Two.”
Add to that list of things you shouldn’t be doing while under the influence is practicing medicine. Really, if you’re a doctor, stop being one for a bit if you’ve had a few.
A couple in Northern Kentucky got awarded 2.5 million dollars in a lawsuit against a doctor who was assisting in the delivery of their baby. Apparently, the doctor fell asleep during the delivery.
The report doesn’t mention if an open container was found in the delivery room or what the doctor was drinking. I bet it was beer. That stuff always makes me sleepy too.

I found this kind of interesting. Random House is basically avoiding the Apple iPad, stalling any kind of sales contract with them and keeping their authors in the dark. Click here to read the story.
I don’t want to see any writers cheated out of any kind of money, but if I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times (well, maybe not a million, but a lot). I like reading my books the old fashion way—by turning the pages. My goal, my intent is to never own one of these iPad things.

Champions Grille over on Crookshank Road is closing on April 10. Apparently the restaurant and bar has lost its lease.
I’ve only been in there twice. The first time—a few months ago—some friends and I had some drinks and dinner there and it wasn’t bad at all. Sure, it’s bar food but it was good bar food and the service was friendly and the drinks strong enough.
Then a couple weeks ago, I went in with some other friends and while the food was fine, the service was horrible. It was like our waiter couldn’t be bothered. It’s pretty bad when you have to get up from your table and hunt down your waiter to get a damn drink.
At least the building won’t be vacant. I mean Cincinnati can always use another Family Dollar Store—right?

We’ll skip the “That Was the Week That Was—In Blogs” post this week because I’m just too lazy to do it this morning. Besides, I find the video clip down below more interesting.
The Catholic Church has been in the news again lately with more sex abuse scandals. This time, Pope Benedict XVI is in the spotlight.
Friday night on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Christopher Hitchens and Bill discussed this for about 10 and a half minutes. Take a look.
What do you think? Do you agree with Chris and Bill? I certainly do and for those of you who hate me for posting this, take some comfort in the fact that at least I didn’t do it on Easter Sunday.

Tonight here in good old Cincinnati, DUI checkpoints will be in place. I didn’t know this but apparently, police agencies are required to tell the public the general vicinity where these checkpoints will be and the times when they will take place.
Click here to get educated on this and keep checking the internet today to find out when and where to go get your DUI.
Is it just me, but if you’re going to drink and drive tonight (and, of course, you shouldn’t), wouldn’t it be wise to avoid these checkpoints that are going to be posted on the web? Wouldn’t it be smarter for the police not to tell the public?
Whatever. I’ll stay home and drink.

My “rant” on this recently passed health care reform bill isn’t going to happen.
Me, like so many others that I know, really wanted that public option. I mean if you’re going to change health care, why not really change it and help all the people and not just most?
But I’ve cooled down. This reform is a step in the right direction and I’ll take it. I’ve come to realize that real change in this country is hard for a lot of people to take—especially with some of those on the right.
Why are some of these people so damn crazy? Threats and vandalism are now taking place about this health care reform passage and our Rep. Steve Driehaus, who finally woke up to the fact that he should vote for this change, is now fearing for his family’s safety because a local right wing blogger posted Driehaus’s address on his blog urging people to pay Driehaus a visit.
Does the GOP think these kinds of activities will help them with the next election? Anyone who can put a thought together will quickly conclude no. It makes those on the right look like bullies and totally out of touch with the needs of this country. It makes them look like backward hicks.
Sorry. I guess there was a “rant” in me after all.

Yes, we’re talking about Cincinnati chili yet again.
When you go into a Skyline Chili and order your food, how long will it take you to get it?
These kids went to the Skyline in Clifton and sort of timed it. Take a look.
So it more or less takes two minutes to get your food at Skyline. Isn’t that what you always suspected?

A good time should be had by all this coming Saturday night at the Blue Rock Tavern on Hamilton Avenue. Don’t Forget to Flush Productions is having a book release event!
Click here to get all the information you need.
Chuck Byrd, the president of “Don’t Forget” invited me to be one of the readers but I can’t make it. I mean, the reading doesn’t start until nine o’clock at night and if I don’t get my 16 hours of sleep, I’m a mess the next day.

I very seldom ever get books from the library. Why? Because I’m usually late in returning them.
But I’ve never been this late. This happened at a library in London. Someone returned a paperback library book a bit late—like 45 years late.
What do you think would happen if this took place at the Public Library here in downtown Cincinnati? Would the person have to pay those late fees? Do you think the person would be sent to jail?
I’ll consider all three of the questions above as the “Question of the Week.”
