Let me tell you, I'm so glad I went. I grew up listening to CKLW in the 60's and Motown was king in those days.

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.

I know the Port Authority has a positive Toledo video on their website. They should post it on You Tube. The city also should have many positive Toledo videos. Post them too. Image is everything and with the number of people that log onto You Tube, this is a site Toledo should flood with positive images.
