Sports music By Marc Katz If you read Dayton City Paper regularly, you probably know of Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg. If you only read this column, you don’t know anything about her at all.

An unassisted score By Marc Katz So it’s the Sizzling Summer Sex Issue, and I’m supposed to come up with a column about love and sex, like it’s a story that doesn’t come up at home all the time. Love doesn’t always have to be spoken, but it should always be there, like doing the […]

Woody Hayes and politics by Marc Katz So I’m in the sports office at a ridiculous time of the morning–1:45 a.m.–and, of course, I can’t remember what I was doing there, but I didn’t and still don’t drink or do drugs, so I wasn’t lost.
