It's arguable that Tell No One is better than Hitchcock's Wrong Man; if not, then it is the best psychological thriller to come from our French friends since With a Friend Like Harry (2000). But why argue? it is a satisfying murder mystery exploring the deep, albeit clich?d, bond between a husband and wife and the odd occurrences that might identify the wrong man as a murderer.

Director Joshua Michael Stern is no Frank Capra, and Kevin Costner is no Gary Cooper or Jimmy Stewart, so the attempt to comment culturally on our voting is never quite successful in Swing Vote. Yet I am moved by that attempt, a poor reason for a critic to make any evaluation, but a valid one on human terms.
Columbus, OH – With the people, the rides, the exhibits and the carnival atmosphere, the Ohio State Fair is usually a colorful place. But there's a new color getting a lot of attention at this year's fair - green. Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler reports.
Columbus, OH – Monday was day one for the new Ohio Lottery game - KENO. Governor Ted Strickland pushed the state lottery commission to add the game, so schools could collect an extra $73 million every year in lottery profits. Nearly a thousand bars, restaurants and bowling alleys are now offering the game across Ohio. Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen went to one of them to see how the kick-off of Keno went.
I am beginning to think that after the superior Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull this year, the summer fantasy-thriller genre ought to be mummified not to be reawakened for years. At least, that's how I feel about The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. As a knock off of the Jones adventure, it doesn't resurrect well.
Columbus, OH – How much does it take to make ends meet in Ohio? A study commissioned by a coalition of local non-profit groups says it's a lot - more money than many people may think. But critics disagree on the way to close that gap. Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler reports.
Columbus, OH – In this year's election for president, Congress, and the Ohio legislature, Republicans and Democrats may be at each others' throats. But when it comes to one Ohio ballot issue, the politicians are virtually hugging each other. Ironically, the issue that's brought them together is an issue that's not particularly high on the list of voters' concerns --- the environment. Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen reports.
