Whenever I think of Bill O’Reilly—and I don’t think about him much at all—I usually think he would be a good fit here in Cincinnati. I mean he’s very conservative, a bit backwards and lives in his own little world.
For example, Bill is quite pleased that Air America has folded and views it as the USA turning back to being more conservative. Crooks and Liars fills us in, telling those of us with any kind of commonsense what we already know: It’s all bullshit.
It’s just Bill O’Reilly being Bill O’ Reilly. Nothing more.

Before I have my coffee, let me say a few words about John Edwards and the National Enquirer.
There’s no doubt about it. The National Enquirer was way out in front on that John Edwards story—you know—about him being the father of Rielle Hunter’s baby. The executive editor at the Enquirer is so proud of this reporting; he thinks the paper deserves a Pulitzer Prize.
Really. Click here to read more about it.
As far as I’m concerned, yeah, they managed to get this story right but nine times out of ten, they still make up stuff and/or get stories wrong. They deserve a Pulitzer as mush as Paris Hilton does.
As for former presidential candidate John Edwards, you sir have been a major disappointment. Instead of owning up to this, you lied and said you weren’t the father of Hunter’s baby when, of course, you really were and you turned this into a bigger story than it needed to be.
I liked you when you were running for president but now I know you’re just a lying jerk who thinks with his third leg. I feel sorry for your wife.
All right. I’m having my coffee now.

Despite the rain, on Thursday afternoon, I made my bus connections and went to Bart’s over in Newport for happy hour.
I had a great time visiting with bartender Laura and my other friends Ann and Doug—probably too good a time as I missed that Tank bus I usually take to get me back to downtown Cincinnati.
Missing a Tank bus isn’t that big a deal as they run every ten minutes or so. Missing a Metro bus in Cincinnati is another story as they don’t run that often to get me back to Westwood.
When the Tank bus got me back over across the river, I walked up to Government Square and the Federal Building only to see the #6 bus pulling away. Damn. I hate it when that happens.
With it still pouring down rain, I knew that the next #6 bus wouldn’t be arriving for another 25 minutes. Because of the drinking at Bart’s, I also now had to go to the restroom.
I took a damn cab back to Westwood. I figured spending the twenty bucks on the cab was better than wetting my pants.

At the beginning of the year, we decided to give this thing a bit of a facelift, after which we received some complaints about it.
Some said our site was now harder to read, the headings too small, and the site was “too blue.”
So, we’re giving it another facelift and this one we’re sticking with—at least for a couple minutes.

I know I’ve said it too many times before, but Cincinnati is just strange.
Richard Redden, who lives in Cheviot, has been charged with rape. It’s being reported that after partying with a woman, she fell asleep—then he had sex with her. Click here to read more on the story.
The question that immediately comes to my mind is this: If you’re being raped, wouldn’t you—I don’t know—wake up?
Afterwards, he reportedly called the woman and told her he was sorry about what he did. Do rapists normally do this?
Now, of course, rape is not funny at all and the guy is no doubt an asshole, but this is the first time I’ve ever heard of an apologetic rapist.

Are you interested in my morning routine? Of course you are.
I usually get up around six thirty. While drinking coffee (and no more than two cups) and smoking a couple of cigarettes outside (and I don’t want to hear it, I really don’t), I go through my e-mails and review writing projects I’m working on. Then, I’m ready for breakfast.
My morning routine now includes oatmeal. Why I’ve avoided it for all these years, I don’t know.
I prefer the instant variety because I’m too lazy in the morning to do anything else. I would suggest you try the Active Lifestyle brand. The three flavors are almond & cranberry, maple brown sugar & pecan and the best is raisin, apple & walnut.
After about a minute in the microwave it’s done and it’s a breakfast that sticks with me, plus it tastes damn good.
After breakfast, I’ll go out and smoke my third cigarette of the morning and no—I still don’t want to hear your complaints.

Why do the Cincinnati cops take everything so seriously?
At a Burger King in Symmes Township, an employee of the restaurant was in her car with Burger King’s bank deposit in her purse. She says a guy forced his way into her vehicle and said he had a weapon. He made her drive to a wooded area where he took her purse that had close to $3,000 in it—that Burger King money.
Sounds scary, doesn’t it? Click here to read more about it.
Turns out the whole thing was just a joke, tunes out this girl was telling a “whooper” (get it?). There was no guy at all. She and a couple other Burger King employees just wanted the cash. Now these girls have been arrested.
I don’t understand this. Burger King keeps saying “Have it your way” and that’s all the girls were trying to do. Leave it to the Cincinnati police to overreact.
It’s so typical. It’s so Cincinnati.
Looking on the bright side, at least the girls will get better meals in jail than at Burger King.
