Columbus Answers: Why doesn't traffic-light timing prevent congestion Downtown? — It's true that Third Street is often congested around rush hour Downtown. Intersections sometimes approach gridlock as backups prevent cars from clearing the intersection before the traffic light changes. But Patti Austin, an administrator with Columbus' Division of Traffic Management, says that the traffic signals' timing is coordinated, and it's not quite the lights that cause the congestion.

McDonald's-themed Black Sabbath parodists Mac Sabbath playing Columbus — By: Susannah Elliott Mac Sabbath, led by lead vocalist "Ronald Osbourne," performs songs like Pair-a-buns (based on Black Sabbath's Paranoid). "Slayer McCheese" plays guitar while a remote-control Fry Guy wheels around the stage. A sinister-looking Grimace - oops, I mean "Grimalice" - is on bass guitar, while "Cat Burglar" takes the drums.

Visiting writers still surprised by hip Columbus — By: Susannah Elliott Nearly two years ago, this blog listed 10 times that visitors to Columbus returned to their home cities and wrote who-woulda-thunk-it pieces about Columbus' supposedly unbelievable food and attractions.
