Plain Dealer Columnist Connie Schultz is taking a hiatus from her work for Ohio's largest newspaper. In a column today, the Pulitzer Prize winner explains that continuing to write about what's on her mind has become increasingly difficult ever since her husband, Congressman Sherrod Brown, announced he's running for Senate.
