To the editor: Small-minded positions

The Blade’s Feb. 24 editorial, “A small business folds,” suggests that people who didn’t patronize this business because the owner is a Republican Trump supporter are “small-minded”.

EDITORIAL: A small business folds

Does The Blade think that all boycotts are supported only by small-minded people? That seems like a small-minded position to me.

A fix to the pothole problem?

While most roads in and around Toledo are in need of repair, a drive on the Anthony Wayne Trail, both in to and out of downtown, is particularly harrowing; especially in the center lane, as those who make the daily trek can attest.

Instead of accepting the annual appearance of potholes as inevitable, along with any number of “temporary fixes,” why not save that money for a permanent fix? The city should instead install something known as “self-healing” concrete, which has been around for some time now.

At a cost of approximately 25 percent more than traditional road materials, it would be more than worth the expense for something that lasts for decades. This could finally save Toledo from the annual “pothole repair dance.”
