WITH THE AMAZING STORY COMING FROM CLEVELAND, you may have missed a few items so let's get caught up....
CAME ACROSS A STORY FROM CHESAPEAKE BEACH Consulting and a Democratic outfit called Lake Research Partners. They conducted a study that resulted in an odd conclusion. The two groups found that when a female political candidate runs for office, if her appearance becomes an issue, she WILL NOT win her race...even if everything said is positive. Research found that if voters read about her appearance, her favorability rating falls 11%, her likeability goes south by 6% and her "Qualified" rating shrinks 5%. Why? Couldn't tell you!
I DID MENTION THIS ON TODAY'S SHOW, BUT DIDN't get into it. Two new studies indicate that gun related deaths in the United States have dropped by 39% since 1993. Meanwhile, the number of gun deaths per 100,000 people has dropped from 7 in 100,000 in 1993 to 3.6 per 100,000 people in 2010. Maybe there's some truth to the theory that if a creep thinks you may be packin', he'll move on to someone else.
IN CASE YOU MISSED THE RESULTS FROM YESTERDAYS election, Barberton, Coventry and Manchester schools passed levys, while Cuyahoga Falls and Mogadore folks said NO!!! Maybe the economy is improving somewhat. Three years ago, the schools couldn't pass gas!
I'M NOT REALLY SURE WHY, BUT I'M REALLY TICKED off about this supposed psychic...Sylvia Browne...who told the mother of Amanda Berry in 2004 "She's not alive, honey." Amanda's mom was of course desperate and probably looking for any port in the storm. Well guess what? This "phony" sent her to her grave thinking her little girl was dead. This fraud appeared on the Montel Williams Show with Louwana Miller, Amanda's now deceased mom. I know Miller said she believed in psychics "98%". Maybe I should be angry at the producers of Montel Williams crapfest. Going for ratings at the expense of a grieving mother is f*$ked up.
THIS HAS BEEN ALL OVER THE NEWS LATELY, but in case you missed it...the East Coast is about to witness a cicada invasion. As many as a trillion of the little red eyed devils are about to emerge from the ground from New England to the Carolins along the east coast. Ohio is not supposed to be part of the action. The cicadas have been waiting 17 years to emerge, and this is the year. By the way, they will be looking for one thing...sex. This should be loud. After all, how would you feel after 17 years of going without?
HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY AND JOIN ME TOMORROW morning from 9am 'til noon on 640 WHLO. We'll have all the latest on the story in Cleveland. JIM
