When a national television show called Herb about taking a tour of the radio station where he works—right here in Cincinnati—he jumped at the chance.
“Real Families” will premier this fall on the FOX network, but I’ve managed to get six minutes of it for you to view right here!
Herb gives the teevee people a tour of the radio station and introduces them to some of his coworkers.
Golly, don’t you wish you could work there?

It’s been nearly 20 years since Pete Rose was banned from baseball because of betting on the Cincinnati Reds while he was manager.
Now reports are coming in that baseball commissioner Bud Selig might reinstate him which would allow Rose to be considered for the Baseball Hall of Fame. Click here to read more about it.
So what do you think? Is 20 years enough—you know—forgive and forget? Is it time to get Pete Rose back in baseball?

These “birthers” really make me laugh. They think President Obama wasn’t born here despite the fact that there is indeed a birth certificate proving that he was.
This isn’t an issue but it is becoming a sideshow and it’s making the GOP look foolish—which actually is fine with me.
Take a look at this video on Wonkette. Look how silly these GOP Congressmen come across.

◊ I was in the Cork ‘N Bottle again this past Friday and two cashiers confirmed to me that those pink slips hanging up next to the cash registers concerning Buddakhan, the Cincinnati downtown bar and restaurant that closed last month, is all about bad—n.s.f. checks. One of the cashiers was a bit angry about it saying “the government is looking for him.” What that means exactly I don’t know, but I’m assuming the “him” is owner Dan Dell. What a bad ending to a place that had so much promise.
◊ Gregory Flannery and other staff members of Streetvibes will be heading to Denver at the end of the week. That publication is up for two awards being presented by the North American Street Newspaper Association.
◊ Yours truly is a big hit in the United Kingdom. No, that’s a lie—but I was a bit shocked to find out my new book is available in the U.K. at an online bookstore named Waterstone’s. You think I could get a book signing there?

My friend Marilyn lives in a town called Hamersville in Brown County. She has a cat named Rasta.
Now I’ve known a lot of cats in my life, having owned five in my adult life in Cincinnati and knowing dozens while growing up on a small farm near East Enterprise, Indiana where outdoor cats were everywhere.
I’ve known some smart, cool cats, but I’ve never known a cat like Rasta.
Here—take a look. . .
Marilyn, maybe you should change Rasta’s name to Rover.

Like a lot of Sunday mornings, or really like any other morning, I wake up with my mind full of questions. This morning, I’ll turn to the wonderful world of blogs to see if I can find any answers.
Can serious relationships be built on a solid foundation of lies and omissions? Dan Savage at Daily Dish is telling me yes, so already this morning I’ve learned something new.
Does Andy Rooney miss his old friend Walter Cronkite? The Huffington Post gives me solid proof that he does.
Is G. Gorden Liddy—you know the Watergate burglar—an over the hill radio talk show host who’s full of shit about President Obama not have a birth certificate? Chris Matthews at Majikthise is nicely confirming this for me.
Why am I so confused about Health care and why did Rudy Giuliani at Wonkette just make me feel even more confused?
Is Justin Jeffre at Cincinnati Beacon a namedropper? Harley Munch at The Cincinnati Man is telling me yes.
I can’t help but wonder—what’s going to happen at MidPoint Music Festival this year? I’m wondering a little less now since Mike Breen at Daily Beat has given me an update.
Are things getting any better in Over-the-Rhine? Apparently not. The Cincinnati Nation tells me another man was killed there Saturday night.
Should it be illegal for a woman to get an abortion without getting permission from a man first? Crooks and Liars is telling me Ohio Republican John Adams is re-introducing a bill that would make that so. Is John Adams an asshole?
Are all these questions giving me a headache this morning or is it from the vodka from last night? I don’t need a blog to give me the answer to that.
I’m making some coffee. Have a great Sunday.

It’s Friday, so let’s just try to have a little fun here in uptight Cincinnati with the question of the week.
When it’s time for “night-night,” when it comes time to go to bed, what do you wear?
Do you wear pajamas? A nightgown? Perhaps a t-shirt?
Or even here in Cincinnati, is it possible that you sleep in the buff? All naked?
Be honest—that is if you want to be.
