Toast all those who donated to Kiley Baker's family. The family did not have insurance at the time of Kiley's horrific injury in which she lost her leg, but the community has given almost $19,000 through fundraisiers.

Roast Ohio Democrats in statewide office for hiring family members. Attorney General Marc Dann cursed out a reporter for the Warren Tribune Chronicle after he reported a woman Dann raised as a daughter landed a job in the secretary of state's office.

There is nothing illegal, per say, about this practice, and perhaps both appointments were legitimate. But, after voters swept Democrats into office on the promise they would clean up the corruption in Columbus, these hirings have the appearance of favoritism and reek of hypocrisy.
