Governor-elect John Kasich has some tough words for Ohio:

Kasich also had a direct message for the teacher's union, who blasted him during the campaign for his stance on the merit pay and holding teachers accountable.

"I am waiting for the teachers union to take out full page ads in all of the newspapers apologizing for what they had to say about me during this campaign," said Kasich.

Or what? He'll hold his breath and turn blue until they do?

He also was quite clear about wanting to erode education and yes, kill infrastructure projects like passenger rail.

An issue important to many in the Miami Valley was the future of the 3-C rail, that would bring passenger rail travel into the region.

Kasich minched no words about the future of passenger rail service in Dayton and the rest of the state.

"That train is dead. I said it during the campaign. It is dead. Passenger rail is not in Ohio's future."

Kasich went on to say that he did support expanding the rails to help with the transportation of goods, just not for passengers.

I see. Expand rails to move goods, not passengers, so people who make things couldn't really get to work to make things?

Alrighty then.
