"Econ, do you live in the city of Toledo?"
From one of the Blade's creepy, stalking stories about EconCat88:
So far, the man behind “EconCat88” has refused entreaties from The Blade by way of telephone, email, two visits to his home in and stories seeking an interview with him.
From one of the Blade's 10 articles that mention EconCat88:
Nancy Ankney of Sylvania Township wrote that: “Toledo does not need this negativity. Because the critic exists and has made videos, that doesn’t rationalize the high exposure that you have given him.”
A ruffled EconCat88 accused the critic of contributing to Toledo’s decay by moving to the suburbs.
“There was some lady from Sylvania Township that had plenty to say about the negativity of my videos, and I find it somewhat ironic that somebody from Sylvania Township would have anything to say about Toledo, because frankly, all you folks that have ran to the suburbs over the last 30-40 years, you’re actually as responsible for these problems as anybody,” EconCat88 said as he drove along.
He challenges her, “Why don’t you come down here, buy one of these dumpy houses, refurbish it, move into it, and put Toledo back on the path to whatever your version of recovery is?”
Why do so many TPS employees and city employees live outside Toledo? I don't give a damn where they live, but why not live within Toledo?
Why has Toledo's population declined so significantly over the past few decades while the population has increased in places like western Lucas County, northern Wood County, eastern Fulton County, western Ottawa County, and southern Monroe County? Why haven't those people moved back to Toledo?
Could it be said that living in an outlying community is magnitudes more negative about Toledo than EconCat88's videos? Those silent "outsiders" are bigger critics of Toledo than EconCat88.
Simple question. Why live outside Toledo?
