What the heck happened to Toledo Talk?

I checked out Toledo Talk today and it's completely different. I don't understand what jr is trying to do with his site. Did I miss something and he advertised his change of direction or is it a sneak attack to disorient his readers?

Another coincidence? Probably, but I'm still amused!

Infrastructure in America


I just watched the NBC nightly news about the bridge collapse in Minneapolis. They mentioned that it would cost $65 billion to bring all the structurally deficient bridges in the US up to code. I am sure that many bridges in Ohio are not up to snuff, including some around Toledo.

WTOL Editorial: If Neo-Nazis Show Up, JUST STAY HOME

Bob Chirdon at WTOL Channel 11 had this to say: The people of Northwest Ohio should just stay home if the Neo-Nazi losers march in Toledo on August 17. Their hate-filled message disgusts me. If we just stay home, there is no way the riots of 2 years ago can be repeated.
