If I remember correctly, he deleted his account once Braxton was injured.

Choosing a place to stay hinges on a few things: 1) if you want to be closest to the action, 2) if you want a nicer place to stay, or 3) if you want to sleep on the cheap.

If you want proximity to bars and pools, pick something on Delaware Avenue (The Edgewater Hotel and The Commodore Resort come to mind). As a plus, you'll be within a block of all of the downtown bars. The downside is they won't give you a relaxing stay. The rooms are built cheaply and if you're not running through the halls hollering at 3:00 a.m., someone else will be.

If you want a nicer place to stay, look at cottage rentals and the BayShore Resort. BayShore is less than a five minute walk to the downtown area, every room has a sunrise view of the lake, and the hotel is a little nicer than the party hotels. 

If you don't want to spend a lot on sleeping accommodations, check out South Bass Island State Park. My friends and I spent a bachelor party weekend at the park and it worked out really well. Three nights a the park is less than $100 and, if you call for reservations early, you can get one of the really nice sites on the cliff that overlooks the lake. The downside is that you you'll have to take a cab to get downtown.

My only piece of advice is to show up to the island with a plan. If you want just a crazy party weekend, Put-in-Bay can be that. But the island also offers a few good restaurants, a few wineries, a microbrewery, good scenery, and great history. I grew up in the area, so let me know if you have any questions.

I understand that there are instances where an individual could come into contact with an infected person's bodily fluids on a plane. I was responding to the notion that everyone on the plane is now at risk of contracting Ebola simply because they sat in the same vicinity for a plane ride. That is not the case.

And discussions about airborne Ebola have all been about hypothetical future mutations, not the current virus. The current virus is not airborne and can't be transmitted by a cough.

I understand, but that doesn't mean those 100 people are all at risk of contracting Ebola. Of those 100 people, only the immediate family members of the victim are being regularly monitored for symptoms. You can sit literally right next to someone who has Ebola and be fine as long as you don't touch their bodily fluids.

Ebola doesn't spread the way you think it does.

1. Unless you're saying 100 people in Texas literally touched the patient's bodily fluid, 100 people in Texas didn't "come in contact" with the patient.

2. Ebola is not airborne, so the only way the other people on the plane are at risk is if they touched the infected person's bodily fluid.

It may be a little out of walking distance, but Jack and Benny's is my favorite greasy spoon in the city. It is a little far from the stadium--seven blocks north of Lane at High and Hudson--but easily worth the walk or a short cab ride. Biscuits & gravy and pancakes (my favorites are the multigrain or the Buckeye with chocolate and peanut butter chips) are out of this world. Get there before 9:30 to beat the rush.

Has it ever occurred to anyone that MMan might actually be Dave Brandon?

Gone Girl gave me the worst nightmares of my adult life.

I'd assume most shock jocks have a similar trajectory. I remember Torg once said that Glee should not be on prime time because it depicts gay couples kissing and we shouldn't risk children seeing that content. Never cared for him much after that.

Comment 02 Oct 2014

I'm out on a limb here, but I think this has less to do with politics and more to do with really shitty football and a mismanaged sports shop.

Shoutout to all the racists down in Mississippi, who struggle every weekend to balance their love of Ole Miss football with their hatred of black people. 

I love you, DJ.
