Steve Gagliardi of Steubenville, Ohio, second from right, and Paul Grant, third from right, talk together at the bar at Froehlich's Classic Corner restaurant, Steubenville, Ohio, Friday, October 26, 2012. Of the election Gagliardi says, "I'm a Romney supporter. I've been a banker all of my life and the debt of this nation will cripple us." Once a productive steel town, Steubenville, Ohio's population has contracted faster than anywhere else in the country between 1980 and 2000 as their steel plants shut down. The area has seen a drop in unemployment in recent years due in part to the prospects of natural gas but the city still has a long way to go with unemployment figures higher then the the rest of the state and the country.

LeBron James' 'I can't breathe' T-shirt the latest display of politics on the playing field

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James on Monday night during pregame warmups wore an “I can’t breathe” T-shirt, referring to Eric Garner, who died after a New York police officer placed him in a chokehold during an arrest for selling loose cigarettes. The shirt, one of several featuring the slogan that have been seen around the league in recent days after a grand jury declined to indict the officer last week, is just one in a long history of political statements made by athletes on the playing field.
