Anita Lopez may have found a winning strategy in portraying herself as a working, single mother. A lot of Toledoans can identify with her financial situation.
Divorce is usually the quickest way to make two people broke.
What struck me is Ms. Lopez made nearly $80,000 in 2011 and on top of that, she got $7,000 in alimony.
Alimony? Who gets alimony these days?
I want her lawyer for mayor
Yeah. let's get that guy's name and get him on the ballot. He's probably got a great credit rating and actually makes his car payments.
On a totally unrelated matter:
Should we be worried that Vladimir Putin has endorsed current U.S. national security state policies?
He said, in effect, Edward Snowden should stop picking on our good friends in the U.S.A. Who is he talking about the USA? The NSA?
Putin is our friend and defender? What does that say about what we are becoming?
Putin has never has a nice thing to say about this country. Now that we are adopting a few KGB tactics, the old KGB thug hears music.
Speaking of divorce lawyers, how would you like to be Mrs. Putin's divorce attorney? You'd have to walk a fine line between serving your client well, but not so well you end up in a gulag.
I pity Edward Snowden. You know you've got a problem when you consider Vladimir Putin as your savior.
He may end up in Venezuela. I can see Welcome Wagon giving him a free roll of toilet paper and telling him: "Make it last, you'll only get one a year."
Maybe we could send him a CARE package with a 24-pack of Charmin. I think that would qualify as a humanitarian gesture.
THE LAST WORD: In a better world a man like Baldemar Velasquez -- a moral and a political leader, would be running for mayor. At age 66 he is getting arrested for civil disobedience in North Carolina. The man lives his values. And he probably doesn't have an $800-a-month car payment.
