The Cleveland Plain Dealer should be ashamed of themselves.

Can't wait to see what they come up with when restaurant carry becomes legal in a few weeks. Gonna need some new underoos.

(By the way, congratulations to OFCC for making the City of Cleveland Heights abide by state law and standing up for our civil rights.)

A political, legislative victory for gun rights AND open carry going hand in hand?!

Someone alert Rob Pincus!

On the other hand, I think this is another good example of just how irrelevant the mainstream, traditional media is becoming.

The "new media," which is largely made up of talk radio, independent journalists (or "citizen journalists" as I've head them referred to) and independent bloggers are where opinions, actions and grass-root developments are taking place.

My wife is a former CBS TV reporter who hasn't been in front of a camera in more than ten years and the only time she watches the national news is on Fox during the elections. She only watches the local news for weather.

I collect my news from a variety of sources, then compile my own opinion.

Rags like the Plain Dealer are perfect illustrations why more and more newspapers are bankrupt--nobody's paying to read them.

Worse yet, fewer and fewer are reading them at all.

Speaking of the Pain Dealer, I don't know if you saw/heard this or not: Connie Schultz, who I believe you blogged about a while back, has resigned from the paper.

If the Cleveland Heights police spent half the time and effort on fighting crime as they do on camping every god-damned inch of ceder between fairmont and severance center looking for 26mph speeders, maybe I wouldn't feel the need to OC in that city.

Funny thing. I can't find a Story ANYWHERE about the Hundreds of Gallons of Blood that was spilled at the Picnic this Weekend, do you?

Awww, who's a sad panda?

Unfortunately, the Pee Dee has no shame.

PS: Great news about Connie Schultz. So she won a Pulitzer. So did Walter Duranty. So did the Akron Beacon Journal, by carrying water for Goodyear's incumbent (mis)management during Sir James Goldsmith's takeover attempt in the 1980s. You'd be surprised how impressive a Pulitzer isn't, these days.
