White City, White Heat And More Morning Reading: Feb. 4

Posted By on Mon, Feb 4, 2013 at 9:40 AM

- Mentor earned itself a spot at the top of a rather alabaster list: cities with the highest percentage of white people. Good time to review this now-defunct blog. (Via Reddit)

- The PD's Stephen Koff has the details on a post-election arms race review regarding the campaign spending of Josh Mandel and Sherrod Brown. One group says it was the most expensive race in the country. Another group counters. Political ads supporting Mandel totaled $24.1 million, though not a penny garnered him the Senate seat.

In discussing his race’s outcome and the amounts spent against him and other Democrats, [Brown] said, “It didn’t work this time, but that doesn’t mean it can’t work in the future when you spend that much money.”

- The Cleveland Leader checks in on Muhammad Ali and drops this eschatological headline: Boxing Legend Muhammad Ali Could Be Dead Within Weeks Says Brother. The one and only Cassius Clay has been not-quite-healthy for years now; he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1984. His brother elaborates, rather obliquely: "He's in a bad way. He's very sick. It could be months, it could be days. I don't know if he'll last the sumer. He's in God's hands."
