Goooooooooooooooo. Faster!
  • Goooooooooooooooo. Faster!

Good morning, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you blow that yellow light while talking on your cell phone.

— Cities give tax breaks, subsidize, and otherwise beg companies to stay within their borders, so why doesn't Cleveland give those sort of financial incentives to LeBron? The Freakonomics blog asks just that question. (NY Times)

— The Ohio Department of Transportation and the University of Cincinnati did a study on drivers' reaction to yellow lights. Green means go, obviously. Red means, stop. Yellow means speed up, right? That's what my dad taught me. (Washington Post)

— Police in South Euclid are actually ticketing drivers for violating the city's cell phone law. Really. Apparently it's not just a suggestion, like a Stoptional. As soon as I get in my car, I'm calling the city to complain. (Cleveland.com)

— The initial fascination is over. Now that 'Hot in Cleveland' is a couple episodes in, is anyone still going to watch it? (EW)
