  • How can you call this darling vicious?

Good morning, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you settle your sibling dispute with a weapon.

— The new Cuyahoga County council is not pleased with the Plain Dealer's coverage lately. Shocking. Connally and others were meeting with the PD's editorial board yesterday to discuss the disagreements. Here's to hoping they brought a fruit basket. (Cleveland Magazine)

— Two brothers beat the hell out of each other with a bat after getting in a fight. The article doesn't specify wood or aluminum, which we consider a great fault in the reporting. (Sandusky Register)

— Pretty hard to hide the fact that you're drunk on the job when your job as a police dispatcher is to talk to a bunch of people. Someone's bound to notice your slurred speech. (WOIO)

— A bill in the Ohio house would take pit bulls off the list of vicious dogs. Hopefully they use the open slot to add Pomeranians, those things are vicious. (

Seven hours until whiskey time. We'll be back momentarily.
