A man is being sentenced to federal prison because his tenant grew pot. If he had not plead guilty, he'd have received a mandatory five-year sentence. If you think this is wrong, or you believe that he should receive a light sentence, please show your support for him by attending his sentencing in Columbus.

I accidentally purchased the wrong toner cartridge for my printer. I didn't realize it until I opened the package and the cartridge wouldn't fit into my printer. It's in perfect condition; I opened the package once and immediately put it back in the box.

The cartridge is for a Brother, and fits the following model numbers:


I paid $70 for it, and am selling it for $50 OBO. I live in Upper Arlington, but can arrange to drop it off anywhere that's reasonably close (in Columbus).
