Bill Cosby hit it right on the nose. Please read below...I think this apples to the problems we have in our schools.

The Blade's Courthouse Obsession

I get suspicious and not a little curious whenever the Blade starts printing daily stories and editorials about a particular topic, running it into the ground. The fate of the Seneca County courthouse seems to really be important to them. I'm not the only one; I know Fred talked about this on his show this morning.

When Deborah Jackson opened her electric bill in February, she had no idea it would be a life-changing event.
She and her husband, Patrick, who live in a three-bedroom brick house in East St. Louis, Ill., owed Ameren (AEE) $600.82, up from $172 in January. In March, the tab floated into the stratosphere: $1,024.31.

Collective insanity

It has come to my attention that City Council is now preparing to push for Copeland to replace Ludeman as Council President at today's agenda review meeting. Councilman Copeland has his name involved in the illegal actions of his superiors at the Union he is involved in.

Academic Watch

We have learned that TPS officials will announce that the district is in Academic Watch.

So what did Lude do? Or not do?

So the City Council democrats are doing everything they can to get Rob Ludeman off of the council President's seat.

Why, other than the fact that he's a Republican??

Sure the council is mostly democrat, but what's the reason for this big push??

RWJF(Johnson & Johnson) sues Red Cross-and they deserve each other

Expanded Flood Zone Will Force More Residents Out Of Toledo

FEMA will be releasing updated maps of "expanded" flood zones here in Toledo. See Blade article here www.toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070808/NEWS33/70808008&... This will require more Toledo residents to have MANDATORY flood insurance, therefore, raising our house payments from $100-200 a month. This will force even more people to leave Toledo.
