I think we all knew it was coming; still it was sad to see Senator Ted Kennedy pass away last week. Others have said it but I’ll say it again: There will ever be another like him. He fought for us, the everyday man and woman in this country.
Vice-President Joe Biden had some wonderful things to say about Senator Kennedy and Taylor Marsh provides us with this—and The New York Times is telling us that his memoir will be published next month. I’ve already preordered it.
In other news, Jaycee Dugard was kidnapped 18 years ago when she was 11 years old. Last week, she resurfaced. She’s now 29 with two kids of her own. It’s a strange tale that The Huffington Post is telling us. The alleged kidnappers (yeah, like we’re not sure they did it) should rot in prison for the rest of their lives.
Speaking of “rot,” The Streetvibes Blog tells us about a couple of rotten real estate agents who knocked a bottle of insulin out of the hands of a homeless person on 7th Street downtown. Make sure you read this so you’ll know who not to purchase your next home from.
With C.A. MacConnell, it’s always something. Last week, she had to go looking for a “toe truck.” C.A., I’m not even going to mention the seven years of bad luck you’re going to have coming.
It’s well known that Cincinnati is slow in catching up with the rest of the world, but maybe that’s not the case with this swine flu. The Cincinnati Nation is telling us that seven students at Xavier University are being quarantined with the illness. See how it doesn’t pay to go to college?
I know, not funny.
Maybe this is. Maybe this will put an end to all those “birthers” out there about President Obama not being born in this country. Gawker is telling us that his birth certificate has been found at the Minnesota State Fair.
This is so silly; those birthers will probably believe it.
