TFP Column: Handling Charges Do Apply

I have once again written a piece for the Toledo Free Press for the Memorial Day weekend edition, this week entitled "Handling charges do apply". It touches on the increasing role of government in delivering goods and services to us, and to the charges that we incur as a consequence. It might get you thinking a little bit. 

As you would expect however, there are a number of efforts far better than mine, including Tom Pound's piece on the growing number of candidates stepping up to run for office in Toledo, Michael Miller talks about the results of the "Song of Toledo" contest, and Maggie Thurber does a great piece on the history of Memorial Day. 

There is a lot of great stuff in this weekend's edition, and you've got a three day weekend to enjoy it, so please take the time to do so.
