*** I think that the NYTimes went overboard with their description of the neighborhood where Republican Rep. Darrel Issa grew up and attended school:
...Mr. Issa, who grew up in a hardscrabble neighborhood near Cleveland....
Someone who lived in the same neighborhood as Mr. Issa laughed when he read that line in the NYTimes article. He said that where they lived would not be called "hardscrabble" by any stretch of the imagination.
>>>> What is up with Republican Josh Mandel? Why hasn't he filed his financial disclosure? People are starting to talk about his lack of effort on meeting the deadline. Even the Dispatch has questioned why his financial report, which was due by May 15th, hasn't been disclosed.
