A couple people over at City Hall are thinking outside the box.
The Cincinnati Nation is telling us that the voters in Hamilton County may get to vote on cutting the salaries of Cincinnati City Council members in half. Council members Leslie Ghiz and Chris Monzel are leading the charge on this. I say good for them!
Council members currently make $60,000 a year for a job that’s part-time. Cutting the salary in half could save other city workers from losing their jobs. Ghiz and Monzel are actually thinking of the welfare of their coworkers. How refreshing. How very unlike Cincinnati.
Speaking of jobs, do you think Glenn Beck might lose his? Sponsors have been pulling out from this asshole’s show for the remarks he’s been making lately and now Beck is suspiciously on vacation from his Fox show. Wonkette gives us the details.
Reality is Beck getting cancelled is only wishful thinking. Will he come back? Of course. Does Fox want him back? Yes. Why? Ratings.
Have an opinion on this death panel bullshit? Just for fun, let’s go to Majikthise and watch Jon Stewart make a fool of Betsy McCaughey, the lady who started this nonsense.
Don Hewitt, the guy who created “60 Minutes” passed away last week. Lesley Stahl at WowOWow gives us her thoughts on this news legend.
So let’s take our cocaine laced money and head to Sweden. I’ll call Chris Monzel and Leslie Ghiz to see if they want to go with us.
