In their DVD concert film released in April, the Milk Carton Kids pluck guitar strings (and poke fun at each other) in a place familiar to central Ohioans: the Lincoln Theatre in Columbus.
“That was the nicest theater we ever played up to that date,” said singer-guitarist Joey Ryan, recalling the October show on the Near East Side. “Mostly, we were playing in tiny little rock clubs and dive bars.”
Ryan still can’t explain the warm reception he and Kenneth Pattengale, the other half of the twosome, received on E. Long Street.
“For some reason, in Columbus, Ohio, a ton of people seemed to want to come to our show,” he said. “I don’t know why.”

Columbus police are investigating an emergency dispatcher whose brusque replies to a rape victim have garnered national attention.

"I don’t know what you deal with every day," the victim says in the call, "but the kind of sympathy you have right now is zero."

At one point, the 911 dispatcher tells the caller to “quit crying.”

Warning: This video includes audio of a 911 call from a rape victim immediately after the assault.

“When we lost the notion that man is created in the image of God, then we treat people as objects,” Ohio Gov. John Kasich said as the new Ohio Holocaust and Liberators Memorial was unveiled at the Ohio Statehouse on Monday.
“Our young people need to know about injustice and how it happened and what we can do so it doesn’t happen again.”
