MLK Jr. And More... What We're Reading in Cleveland This Morning: Jan. 21

Posted By on Mon, Jan 21, 2013 at 9:17 AM

- In observance of Martin Luther King, Jr., Day today, The PD's Brandon Blackwell talks with a Cleveland couple who owns the only known copy of Dr. King's March 23, 1965, speech right here in town. Here's an excerpt:

"Now, more than ever before, America is challenged to make this dream a reality. For the shape of the world today does not afford us the luxury of an anemic democracy. And the price that our nation must pay for the continued oppression of the Negro is a price of its own destruction."

- For the first time in his term, Gov. John Kasich received a positive job-approval rating, as The Cleveland Leader reports. We're just happy because we can finally take the first shots in the worst drinking game ever conceived.

- Lastly, WEWS meteorologist Jason Nicholas warns errbody that the coldest air Cleveland's felt in four years is on its way. Quick: Now is the perfect time for those "Cleveland weather is just CraAzaY" jokes you've been spouting off for, well, every day you've ever lived here.
