And if you people in Toledo DON'T pass the 3/4% income "temporary" income tax....the end of the world will take place. The city will shut down, police and fire will be closed, cats will sleep with dogs, it'll be worse than Ghostbusters! Just goes to show...if you give politicians any money for any length of time, they feel they're entitled to it FOREVER! Wake up Toledo! Make them do WITHOUT for a while. It won't be the end of the world.
