Gerald Norman Springer is a man of many titles. He is the former mayor of Cincinnati, that dummy who bounced a personal check at a "massage parlor" and a pioneer of trashy television gold. Tonight, Jerry Springer is the special guest at the Ohio Democratic Party's LGBT/Young Professionals reception, hosted by City Council's Chris Seelbach. Admission is $35 and includes one drink. The event runs 6:30-8 p.m. at Know Theater. See if you can strike a pose with the "Ringmaster" in Flashbox's photo booth. Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!
