TFP Column: Political Tactical Victims
Congress has returned from its summer vacation, is back in session, and is up to it usual level of shenanigans. It's hard to tell however, which (if any of them) is taking a principled stand and which are merely trying to position themselves for future political office or suck up to those in power in their respective political party to retain their committee appointments and campaign financing.
For that reason alone, I felt obligated to write about how most of how the rest of us are used as little more than political cannon fodder in these mostly pointless and purely political battles. Our collateral damage status however, usually only allows us to make the grade as "Political Tactical Victims" in this current struggle.
Fortunately however, this time of year sees a great deal going on in Northwest Ohio and the Glass City, so those who want to stay in the know will spend a little time this weekend either on the website or wrapped in the pages of Toledo's largest Sunday circulation newspaper, which also happens to be Ohio's best weekly newspaper for the last five years in a row. Of course, I'm talking about none other than the Toledo Freed Press.
