It's kind of a quiet Monday — as most mid-winter Mondays are in this part of the world — so catch up on some things you've been meaning to get to. Here are a few suggestions:
• Fill out the 2008 Best of Cincinnati reader ballot and tell everyone what's great about living here in 167 different categories.
• Finish up and enter your best creative writing in InkTank's writing competition. The winning entry gets $200 in cash and will be published in CityBeat.
• Finish up and send your best poems about peace and justice to SOS Art, which is compiling its latest anthology of local writing.
• Finish up and submit your artwork to Cincinnati Fringe Festival, which has extended its deadline for this summer's Visual Fringe.
In the news, it's all about the post-South Carolina spin, analysis and look ahead. And President Bush will present his final State of the Union Address. The countdown to the end of an error continues.
Get caught up today — you won't regret it.
