It's good to see a return of sorts to the working class journalist. Hopefully you'll remember what society is supposed to keep running for, the working class, because without it, obviously we end up collapsing.


I have American friends who live in the 567 area code, which covers the Toledo area as well.

Why do you hate them so much?

It is disgusting that our courts are ruled by money. Without a lawyer, you get two or three times the penalty as with a lawyer. Without money, you have to do time.

About Jeff Gerritt

I am the deputy editorial-page editor of The Blade. I recently moved to Toledo’s warehouse district, after spending 13 years in Detroit, where I was an editorial writer and columnist for the Detroit Free Press.

I’ve always walked the streets, writing about prisoners, addicts, homeless people, gang members -- and ordinary people with extraordinary stories.

I played drums professionally for three years, and I’ve also been a factory worker, security guard, house painter, janitor, landscaper, and construction worker.

Everyone has a story. I like the ones that haven’t been told.
