Seven molasses-coated Lemmon Drops to nibble on while waiting for Tom DeLay to show a little humility:
No, I haven't given up. It's that the Oscar-nominated documentary, set in Toledo, is going to be shown at the University of Toledo later this month. For three days, Oct. 21-23.
"This is a real victory for the film," said producer Eddie Schmidt. " we're really glad that there are people in Toledo who have proven that they want Tony Comes' story told."
It's also a huge symbolic victory, Eddie. The leadership of the Toledo Catholic diocese had to be happy with the community's de facto suppression of the film.

Carty Finkbeiner? That's a made-up name if I ever heard of one.

That's why I say, couple a dynamic first name like "Carty" with a distinctive last name like "Finkbeiner" which the Web site ranks as No. 14,072 among 88,799 last names and you have political gold.
How about Toledo's current mayor, you ask? "Jack" is the 53rd most-popular first name for males in the U.S., and "Ford" is No. 102 among last names.
