* The Ohio State Buckeyes have a new football coach. It is Urban Meyer. I hope that he is able to keep Luke Fickell on staff. Coach Fickell worked hard under the most adverse conditions and deserves our thanks for his dedication for the program.
* The NFIB (the National Federation of Independent Business) seems to be a right wing organization with ads on TV/radio attacking Democratic office holders that support safety regulations and laws protecting the environment. Luckily, I don't own a small business but if I did I would not join the NFIB.
* OMG. Would you vote for the new Republican frontrunner in the presidential sweepstakes---Newt Gingrich???? On so many levels, Gingrich makes me ill.
* Why does Republican Josh Mandel want to end Social Security and Medicare? Not everyone has a huge portfolio like his.
