Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you're not reading Osama-related news.

— The suspect in the knife-wielding robbery of Papa Smokes in Mentor-on-the-Lake was finally apprehended after cops found him at a factory in his underwear. No word on if he was smoking at the time. (News-Herald)

— The Plain Dealer has a gallery (with names, info, dates, etc.) of 260 Ohioans who have died during combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. (Cleveland.com)

— The Indians won their 13th straight game at Jacobs Field and completed an undefeated homestand. What does manager Manny Acta think of that? "Superfantastic homestand. Just terrific." Yes, that's an actual quote. (PD)

— A billboard on I-94 in Michigan taunts Ohio State with a "Liar, liar, vest on fire" message. [Insert your own Michigan joke here.] (The Big Lead)
