    This story is so beyond belief that instead of commenting on it, I've embellished a bit of one of my favorite poems.

    Oh somewhere in this favored land a team's reveling tonight,
    Corks are popping somewhere, and someone bums a light,
    And somewhere men are laughing, and little children shout;
    But there is no joy in Cincy, mighty liberty has struck out.
