Dear LeBron: Look out for the Weirdos!

Posted By on Wed, Jan 30, 2008 at 10:32 AM

This blog is best read while listening to Portland's own, the Decemberists:

Dear LeBron, C-notes would like to wish you the very best in tonight’s outing against the Portland Blazers. But please be careful. Portland is a sneaky place. The men in this idyllic outpost of socialism dress like women. And the women dress like men. Actually, it is impossible to tell if Portlanders are men or women. Both sexes wear the same asymmetrical haircut in this town. Both sexes swoon equally for Tegan and Sarah and Rufus Wainwright. And both sexes have sex with both sexes. There is no gay or straight in Portland. Just queer. Don't let that get you off your game. ...

Blog Launches “Sexiest Reporter in Greater Cleveland” Contest

Posted By on Wed, Jan 30, 2008 at 6:33 AM

WKYC's Maureen Kyle is among the finalists for Cleveland's Sexiest Reporter. Who's your hottest?
Earlier this month, local blog Political Science 216 announced it was holding a contest to crown the Sexiest Reporter in Greater Cleveland, because what else would a political blog write about during an election year? Now, we know what you’re thinking — journalism is a field whose most famous local faces are the not-so-Brangelina mugs of Dick Feagler, Carl Monday, and Mike Trivisonno. Announcing the hottest of the lot is like giving an award to the most elegantly dressed Bone Thug.

For $500, you can see Don Cheadle in Shaker Heights tonight

Posted By on Wed, Jan 30, 2008 at 5:21 AM

Don Cheadle wants to party with you and your checkbook.
There are some perks to living in a state known for determining national elections. Or maybe there are just perks to living close to people who actually have money. You decide. Case in point: Tonight, Oscar-nominated actor Don Cheadle will be at a fundraiser in Shaker Heights for Barack Obama. You’ll just need 500 bucks to get anywhere near the guy. Deborah and Ron Ratner of Forest City fame will be hosting the party at their home. Co-hosts include county commissioners Tim Hagan and Peter Lawson Jones. If you can’t afford a ticket, you can always stand on the sidewalk and beg for change. It’s sure to be the one place in Greater Cleveland where no one can plausibly invoke the old “Sorry, I’m broke too” excuse. – Lisa Rab

With this in mind, we present this very helpful tip from a friendly local homeless man. Thank us when you’re wearing McDonald’s cups as shoes. If you live or work in the Warehouse District, you’ve probably seen our hero, “Bear." ...
