The Quality of Cleveland Life Report

Posted By on Wed, May 23, 2012 at 9:51 AM


Your guide to living in fabulous Cleveland.

Cuddly Li’l Killing Machines: Ohio removes the term “pit bulls” from its law against vicious dogs, in essence putting the breed on equal legal ground with all other dogs. Pit bulls statewide hailed the move with a toast of slobber-water and a dinner of human limbs
and noses.

QB Controversy? Of Course: Browns admit they expect new quarterback Brandon Weedon to be their starter, but add that he’ll have to win the job in camp. Also, they’re pretty sure they’re looking at 2-14 this year, but add that they’ll probably have to play the games anyway.

Safety Forces Unite: City reveals plans to merge its EMS and fire departments this summer, a move that has sparked controversy since its introduction. “Actually,” says one EMS official, “we were mainly in it for that don’t-work-but-still-get-paid deal the fire guys had going. That was sweet.”

This Week's Index: The Tribe are out of town this weekend, so no games to not go to.
