Ohio's Congressional Districts

* In the meantime, the crazy, gerrymandered, redistricting map created by Ohio's Republicans is available for  a closer look at Cleveland.com.  You can zoom in and see exactly which district you will be in, unless it is challenged in court.  It does bring some clarification.

*  Here is some bad news for people who like to hear both sides of issues.  The Dispatch has bought some local newspapers/magazines.


...The newly acquired publications, which will become part of Dispatch Media Group, include:
  •   Columbus Monthly, an award-winning city magazine for 35 years
  •   Suburban News Publications, a group of 22 community newspapers serving Central Ohio
  •   Columbus C.E.O., a monthly business magazine
  •   A dozen specialty magazine publications, including Columbus Bride, CityGuide, Restaurant Guide and the Official Columbus Visitors Guide
  •   The Other Paper, a news and entertainment weekly
In addition, a handful of supporting niche local news and information websites, including columbusmonthly.com, columbusbride.com and columbuslocalnews.com, will become part of Dispatch Printing’s digital family... 

This is sad.  The Other Paper was the only paper in town that criticized Kasich.  Now we'll never hear any opposing views. :(  The Dispatch, their management, and writers are clearly still in love with Kasich.
