    This would have been more ironic if he’d been caught with a 12 year old boy.

    Hasn’t abortion always been banned at the point of viability? Technology has just advanced enough that viability is at 20 weeks instead of 24. At that point, a child could survive outside the mother’s womb, so to me this isn’t an issue of a woman’s choice anymore. Besides, an abortion at a gestational age that advanced is induction of labor. You give birth. If you’re going to abort that late in the game, you might as well consider adoption. The procedure is identical on your part, the child just has a chance at life.

    The Rigsby’s do have great bread!
    I also love Auddino’s for sandwich buns. Nobody does buns better than Auddino’s!

    Ron Paul has a few good ideas that no other candidate, Republican or Democrat, is willing to talk about in public, much less endorse.
    Ron Paul also has somewhere between a plethora and a myriad of truly awful ideas that no other candidate, Republican or Democrat, is willing to talk about in public, much less endorse.
    The former fact unfortunately taints the latter.
    That doesn’t change the fact that the former is a fact, and makes him justifiably an also-ran candidate for president. He’s the Firefly of political candidates: enough uniquely right to command a cult following, but enough fundamentally off-kilter premises to be incapable of assembling a mass following.

    Except that Firefly was cut short before it had much of a chance, but once it had developed more of a following, its popularity justified an encore, on the big screen. The Kingsmen, or Right Said Fred, might be a better analogy. ;-)

    ….or perhaps Ron Paul is the Gilligan’s Island of the political world?

    For us, it’s not the amount of space that’s the issue, it’s the configuration of the space that’s problematic for us. Our condo was clearly designed for a single person or couple without children. If it weren’t for that, there would be no need to move.

    If Roland is solely responsible for the Baby Boom in the Short North, we’re gonna have an unpleasant conversation this evening ;)
    I can see 2 reasons for families with children moving out of the city. 1) Schools. Suburbs many times have better school systems, and who wants to chance their child’s education on a lottery?
    2) Space. You can get twice the house for the money in a suburb, not to mention a yard and garage.
    I don’t mean to over simplify the subject, there are certainly many other factors involved in choosing where to live.
    I’m terrified of suburbs and minivans, but I can see why they have such mass appeal. I love being able to walk everywhere I need to go, and I love the sense of pride and community I’ve found where I live.

    Back home (Findlay) there’s a place called Bakers Delight, and boy are their donuts delightful. Anyone heading to Revolver for dinner should definitely check these out. They’re only a few blocks away.
    I’m a fan of long johns and theirs melt in your mouth. Very sugary, I have a tough time eating more than one, but that doesn’t stop me from trying!

    Oh, and I just wanted to give another shout-out to Auddino’s. Not only do they make some delicious goodies, but they’re the nicest family. The last time I went there, I locked my keys in my car. They stayed open an extra half hour while I waited for a locksmith and even gave the baby a roll to snack on. For that alone, they’ll be my go-to for all my bakery goods.

    Tremont Goodie Shop has good donuts. I used to go there after every doctor appointment when I was pregnant. It was AWESOME!!
    Oh, and a Krispy Kreme freshly made melts in your mouth. Not local, but still delicious!

    Sometimes after the baby goes to bed for the night, I manage to play a little WoW – maybe get in a raid before going to bed. :)

    Wait a minute. Bear, you went knife shopping without me!? /cry

    No worries… I haven’t ever seen them anywhere in town, so I let my fingers do the walking.

    Donna prefers our old worn out cheapo knives because they won’t cut her fingers off.

    Yeah, that’s scary. They will… they’ll just do it much more abruptly and with far greater trauma. I hear there are these knife skills classes she might be interested in….

    Hey – wait a minute! I’m the one that took Roland to said knife skills class. LOL
    And just to set the record straight, our knives suck. They cut about as well as a butter knife. Seriously, they’re THAT bad.
    I’m sure Roland was just fishing for my response so he can have written documentation to back up some future plea for new knives ;)

    So honey, make sure you bring home a Global for me. I like the weighting. Heavier knives made me hold onto them too tightly, which isn’t good. Oh, and I like the shape of a santoku much better. I think since I’m still pretty new at using a knife properly, it lent itself to proper technique. With a traditional chef’s knife, I found myself trying to chop more than slice.
    Knives really do scare the heck out of me though, they’re one of the few things that do. And don’t get me started on a mandolin, the color is draining from my face as I type…

    I’m freelancing as a writer/journalist, and need story ideas to write about. I’m open to any subject/topic for a story, no matter how normal, relevant, or strange.

    Isn’t coming up with story ideas part of the job description for a freelance writer/journalist?

    Yes, but I want to write about something that I don’t already know about. If something is going on in your community, it might get underrepresented, because no one will know about it (1), and I’m looking to branch out for ideas. (2) That is all I’m saying on this.

    If you want to write about something you don’t already know about, could you give us some examples of topics that you’re not familiar with?
    Perhaps you could do a writeup on the upcoming election geared toward the population of the community who might rely solely on television ads to make their electoral decisions? Research the claims made on tv and sort out what’s what? You can never know too much about the people who will be voting on your behalf.
