My 1,000th post

It's hard to believe that this is my 1,000th post on Thurber's Thoughts. Let me thank those of you who've been with me from the beginning!

I'm actually taking this post a bit easy...tonight's Eye on Toledo deconstructed the paper's editorial "Say 'no' to COAST," and I've put my notes up on my Eye On Toledo blog. You can read the notes and then listen to the podcast and phone calls. The podcast should be available shortly.

EEK!

If my current rate is any indicator, it will only take 18 years to get there...LOL!

You're young. You have time. :)

Congratulations, my friend. I continue to learn from you every day.

And who would have ever thought that would happen!?

Congratulations! You're doing a great job.

However - I found this on your Eye On Toledo Blog

Why is the will of the people foolish?

We're only human. We make mistakes.

Why are the politicians any smarter than the collective wisdom of the people?

They feel the need to prove that a broken clock is right twice per day?

They thought the will of the people was brilliant when it came to passing the levies – why would a vote to ban the cameras be any less so?

Not exactly true. The politicos that favored the levies in question thought the will of the people that voted in favor of those tax levies were smart enough to do as they were told. There's a difference.

I'm being a little facetious here, but my last point is somewhat serious. The arrogance displayed by many of Toledo's elected officials is exceeded only by their own greed and self-aggrandizement.
