Toledo Talk

Uh Oh

No word yet on whether any OSU band members were involved http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2014/08/01/fitzgerald-cancels-campaign-events-calls-press-conference.html Democratic gubernatorial nominee Ed FitzGerald has canceled two campaign events for today and called a press conference for 2:30 this afternoon, likely to discuss a suburban Cleveland police record from two years ago that said police happened upon him and another person in a car in an otherwise a vacant parking lot at about 4:30 a.m.

"A caller who reported the car to police said that it had been parked in the lot for about a half hour."

Man... who is that person? Who is so mad at the world that they see a car parked in a parking lot with people in it in the middle of the night, and says "I better get the cops involved!"

It's called block watch in some areas. Car with two people at 4:30a in a place where cars aren't usually seen.

Block watches are great when it's 4:30am and there's a group of kids in the neighbor's hard that look like they're up to something. A car in an empty parking lot? Who cares?

well it appears that someone did hence the late night call. not knowing anything about the area if it is a more affluent area maybe the caller was worried about break ins, a less affluent area maybe drugs or something else. the caller has retained a lawyer to avoid the annoying press inquisition

This has been suggested for years, and my answer has been the same: No.

The edit function exists for the post that starts a thread, but I will not enable the edit function for comments because its misuse could foul a thread.

The best edit feature for comments is proofreading and being careful with autocorrect.

10 years with no driver's license? That I don't get.

Not wanting a date with Joanne Grehan to end, I understand.
