Good afternoon, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you look forward to a commute home lasting less than two hours.
— After the brouhaha over council-elect's secret meeting, Dale Miller has taken his name out of the running for president or vice president in the coming year. None of these folks are coming off bright, but at least Miller seems contrite, even if it's just a political move. (Cleveland.com)
— 14.7 to 16.9% of Ohioans admitted to driving under the influence of alcohol in the last year according to a recent study. That's not good, but at least we're better than places like Montana and Wyoming where just about everyone gets drunk and drives. OK, not everyone, but like 20%, which is damn high. (The NSDUH Report)
— A woman vandalized her own home and tried to pass it off as a break-in. Her stupidity is only really enjoyed if you read the whole story. (Lorain Morning Journal)
— The Federal government has officially pulled money earmarked for Ohio's never-to-be-built rail system. We really didn't need it that much anyway. (Cleveland.com)
