New version of Toledo Talk

Topics with comments by "McCaskey"

That's a wrap on Toledo Talk v1.0 - Commenting will be allowed on existing topics here for another week. This app served its purpose for 4.5 years, but I think a little more functionality is needed now, and the new version of Toledo Talk will provide that. I've been using the new version for quite a while. Some aspects of the new version may be confusing for some because of the wiki capabilities, but in other ways, it may be simpler to use.

Northworst Airlines? DTW to LAS - Hubby & I are celebrating another blessed wedding anniversary with a return to Vegas from Sun., 12/9 to Wed., 12/12. We're driving up DTW and flying on Northwest, but are VERY concerned with the increasing flight cancellations. Some have said that it's the end of the month where one is in danger of such a cancellation, but I do not understand why dates would make a difference. Would someone "school" me on this, please? - More>>

Michigan following Ohio to a state-wide smoking ban. - I'm curious as to how Lucas County bar and restaurant owners feel about the possibility. Will it help business? Or does the nanny state syndrome make it worthy to appose smoking bans everywhere?

Old Line Republican warns America, police state - 2nd republican in 3 days to "Paul Revere" to us that the neocons are going to allow or create a terrorist attack. Keep in mind these are the folks that believe they should make biblical prophecy come true, the battle to end all battles, the return of Jesus, the end of 99.999999999999% of mankind. War with Iran, and using the constitution, referred to as a "g-damned piece of paper" as toitee paper. Of course they have a 150 "graduates" of Pat Robertsons "law school" to help pave the way.
These are the guards at Jonestown, who gave the choice of a bullet, or a nice drink of Kool Aid.


Old-line Republican warns 'something's in the works' to trigger a police state Muriel Kane

Generation Chickenhawk: the Unauthorized College Republican Convention Tour - On July 13, 2007, I visited Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery, where the bodies of American soldiers killed in Iraq were freshly interred. Afterwards, I headed across the street to the Sheraton National Hotel, owned by right-wing Korean cult leader Sun Myung-Moon, to meet some of the war's most fervent supporters at the College Republican National Convention. - More>>

Strippers at local political fund-raiser - "A golf outing for the Lucas County Democratic Party landed in the rough after outraged elected officials saw strippers liberally volunteering at the party's annual fund-raiser. Domenic Montalto, the executive director, initially pleaded ignorance. But after learning of Mr. Kemp's comments about the strip clubs' participation, Mr. Montalto changed his answer to "No comment."

It's all about who you know, or who you're taking the fall for... - Not that this comes as much of a surprise, but I had hoped that, just once, justice would rest on nothing more than the law. My mistake.

News coverage of tonight's storm - The storm(s) that rolled through around dinnertime tonight produced some thunder, lightning and somewhat heavy rain. At 6:30, Channel 11 was still on the air with special coverage. I turned to Channel 13 and they weren't covering it, the national news was on. I don't know how long 11 was on with the coverage because I turned it off. Now come on - this was your typical storm that pops up during the summer in muggy weather. Now I suppose WTOL will be on the air with commercials tomorrow saying how they were the only channel to provide special coverage. I am getting so tired of it! Anybody else with me?

Sweet Paris gets out in a few hours - Well, the mystery celeb (so called because it's a mystery why she's a celebrity) gets out in a matter of hours. ;^) Does anyone care? It probably doesn't matter, you'll be saturated with stories about her anyway.

Loud Harleys!!! - I love motorcycles and enjoy bikers but at 5:30 AM my neighbor fires up his Harley and I can hear him drive away for blocks. Iím talking about some seriously loud and unnecessary noise. Iím not for restrictions but dang, arenít they liable for the same noise restrictions as car stereos?

Bassett Market Closes - Business is business, and if a business needs to close for economic reasons, that's understandable. BUT, when an employing business is so insensitive that it does not give employees adequate notice so that they may transition with some preparation and instead thinks nothing of disrupting the lives of families, I say never shop at any business that the owners of that business may otherwise have in other locations or may open in the future.
