TFP Column: The Good Samaritan

The concept of 'six degrees of separation' is one that seems to crop up from time to time, allowing us to connect what appear on the surface to be wildly disparate concepts and occurrences. Such was the case for me over the weekend as I tried to put my thoughts together on the recent interest that Chinese investors are showing in Toledo. Let me tell you, it's not easy to draw line from foreign investment in the Glass City to the Bible.

The result of those efforts however "The Good Samaritan", was put up on the Toledo Free Press website today. I hope that it provides a slightly different 'take' on the subject and something worthy of consideration. (Whew! I almost said slant; something that would have undoubtedly been considered a racist remark, and forced me to terminate my position on my own blog.)

With the placement of this piece so early in the week, you have even more reasons to return to the TFP later this week; both for the mid-week "Star" edition and for the original (the largest Sunday circulation newspaper in Toledo).

That is a well-written and well-thought out article. It's refreshing to know that some one sees things straight and does not look at it with a slant (oops).

Mi Amigo, while I always appreciate a compliment, I resent the implications regarding my scribbling and my thought processes (both of which are well known to defy both logic and reason).

No implication on my part; just honest, objective observation.
