Seven molasses-coated Lemmon Drops to nibble on while waiting for the Indianapolis Colts to stumble:
The neo-Nazi group's Oct. 15 appearance in Toledo sparked a riot that cost taxpayers an estimated $336,000.
The NSM's Oregon state chapter, which spreads its message of hate through the Web, is using that figure to recruit bigots for Saturday's return to Toledo. For more than a week, a "help wanted" ad has been prominently displayed on the Web site.
Toledo rally #1 and the [ensuing] riot cost the city $336,000!
How much will the Toledo rally #2 cost? Join us and find out!
Then, after giving contact information for those interested in making the trip to Toledo, it provocatively asks if the hoped-for rioters will "succeed in burning down the town."
Apparently, anything short of anarchy will be a disappointment for these white supremacists.
It seems so surreal, doesn't it?
We see Toledo as a great place to raise a family. The neo-Nazis see Toledo as a place that is receptive to its divide-and-conquer strategy.
They travel to a faraway city, try to stir up trouble, then head home leaving others to pick up the tab. Thus, the apparent giddiness over costing us $336,000.
But his second ad hit me like a blast of cold air. He went the polarization route, talking about his views on abortion and same-sex marriage.
Next thing we know he'll be telling us that he's a uniter, not a divider.
On Tuesday, a TARTA bus crashed into the building that was once home to the Country Palace. For years, the space has been occupied by Caesar's Showbar.
Obviously, I didn't know the history of 725 Jefferson Ave. when I asked Gary Shores, co-host of the WKKO-FM (99.9) morning show, if Caesar's which features female impersonators was the setting for Lucille.
"No," he said, "otherwise the name of the song would have been Larry."
