The Obama Card

Where is Carty?

Where is Carty. No one knows. The laid off police who are waiting at his office for an audience can't find him. His spokes puppet don't know where he is. Just says hes at a retreat. Chief Navarre doesn't know where he is. Makes one wonder if some catastrophe should strike Toledo today, who is in charge?

Police and Carty

I just received an e-mail about this event. Seems like the police that were laid off are taking matters in their own hands, by demanding that our Maor meeting with him.

HAPPENING NOW--Laid off TPD officers demand meeting with Finkbeiner

Northwest/Delta adding flights/seats at Toledo Express




An increase from 4 daily flights to 6 daily flights, upgrades from turboprop to jet service, and a 48% increase in the number of seats offered daily. Way to go TOL! In today's economy, it's great to see an airline making it easier to get to Toledo. Delta (Northwest) could just as easily end all service here. Lets hope it brings bigger and better things to our airport in the future.

Has College Football violated Anti-trust laws?


The Utah State Attorney General is investigating whether College football is violating anti-trust laws with the Bowl Championship Series.

Personally I believe it has. Utah, the only perfect team this year, wasn't even given a serious look. The "mid-major" conferences have to be perfect to get in while the BCS conferences get in automatically despite inferrior records.

There will be no El Mahico for a while

man oh man Gary

do I really need to share my feelings?


Saying that Gary Groszewski "simply substituted one substance for another," a Lucas County Common Pleas Court judge yesterday sent the former Toledo city employee and repeat drunken driver to a drug treatment center followed by two years and four months in prison

I Love This Guy

I have been hearing about this for the last couple of days. What a tribute to the capitalist system. This guy found a way to make it work for himself and a few people. Anyone have a 401(k) invested with this guy? http://www.forbes.com/finance/2008/12/12/madoff-ponzi-hedge-pf-ii-in_rl_.... Everyone who knows this guy say he is a very nice, sweetheart of a guy.

Good Newsweek stuff
