TFP Column: Saving Money By Spending On Trash

Another weekend, another attempt on my part to provide insight and perspective on the events of the week in the Toledo Free Press. 

Now I'm not the most knowledgeable person where the solid waste department of the city is concerned. Karen Shanahan has done a number of pieces on her blog on the issue, and Jim Harpen has provided some previous insight in an earlier column in the Toledo Free Press. Some of the recent events surrounding the situation caught my attention however, and I decided to put my two cents in (the only inexpensive investment that has been made it appears). 

As you know, I always correctly remind you that there is much more than my limited contribution in the TFP; but this weekend I fear that all reading it will agree with me. Michael Miller has outdone his normally outstanding efforts this week with a special piece that I will not attempt to spoil for you with faint praise. Neither will I specifically mention the many other great articles this week, lest they like I suffer by comparison. 

All of this of course, being the reason that you should take some time this weekend to catch up on what's going on in the Glass City in the Toledo Free Press.

As I occasionally worked on garbage trucks in my former life, I could add some colorful stories about the filthy beasts.

But in keeping with my minimal sense of good taste (and, now that you've jarred my memory), I'll save them for a future post on my blog...
