PRUTSOK - Governor should educate himself and give newspapers a try
On Tuesday, Ohio Gov. John Kasich made the bold move of announcing that he counts himself among people who are bereft of intellectual curiosity or who don't care enough about the city, state or country they live in to bother to learn what is going on in it.

PRUTSOK - Signs abound that civilization is in peril
I have no empirical evidence to back this up, but it seems like the Norwalk Reflector has reported more violent crime news of late than we typically do. Not only that, but the crimes themselves seem to be increasingly bizarre.

PRUTSOK - Mortgage fraud prosecution a sick joke
On Monday it was announced via a press release that a federal court had charged three men with mortgage fraud, including the landlord for many area residents, Jerry L. Stackhouse.

PRUTSOK - Impressive governor will need some luck on his side
I had the good fortune of hearing Ohio Gov. John Kasich speak during the recent Ohio Newspaper Association meeting in Columbus, and I came away a fan, of sorts. The Governor basically "had me at hello," when he noted early in his remarks that it's easy to spot those of Serbian descent (such as he and me) when you are at a crowded event -- "They are always the best-looking people there."

PRUTSOK - Serious political discourse with Kim Khardashian
I resolved at the New Year to pay as little attention to politics in 2011 as I can. I've come to the conclusion that watching cable news shows -- virtually all of which are focused on exploiting the perceived "left vs. right" divide in this country -- is barely more informative than watching TMZ, or one of those Real Housewives shows.

PRUTSOK - Incident exposes flawed thinking in U.S. media
The big news item of the week, of course, has been the Wikileaks release of hundreds of thousands of "secret" State Department cables. This has caused no small amount of embarrassment for our diplomatic corps and prompted calls from various quarters for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to be sued, designated a terrorist, charged with treason (even though he's not a U.S. citizen), or even "eradicated" and have his servers destroyed and sowed with salt.

PRUTSOK - Don't let fear run your life
Some old friends and I were reminiscing on Facebook recently about a game we played as children called Indian Trapper.

PRUTSOK - It's not hard to tell who the real 'rats' are
I don't know whether or not you caught this little ditty on the news recently, but a Tennessee lawmaker apologized this week for calling pregnant immigrants "rats" who go out and multiply. Republican Rep. Curry Todd's remarks were made at a meeting at which, he was told, the federal government requires that pre-natal care be given to fetuses on American soil. Because of the Constitution, it seems, these fetuses, if dropped on American soil, are bestowed U.S. citizenship.

PRUTSOK - Election post-mortem, our new and improved e-edition
Polls hadn't closed Tuesday at the time I'm writing this, but I wanted to throw my two-cent analysis of the results in anyway. All the cable news pundits have been spouting the conventional beltway wisdom (which is almost always wrong) that the reason for the devastating Democratic losses across the nation were due to Obama's and the Democrats' overreaching, going too far to the left. I don't think that's the case at all. Voters voted for change in 2008, not a third term for President Bush, which is what they got.

PRUTSOK - We should be encouraging the informal economy
We have lost a powerful capitalistic form of upward mobility in this country that it looks more and more like we are going to need to reacquire.
