BERKELEY EAST? Toledo to Marines: Get Out.
UPDATE: Reader Ryan Kelley thinks this is unfair:
There's a huge difference between Berkley giving Code Pink a parking spot in front of a recruiting center and the mayor of a city which has been hosting Marine training since 2004 getting miffed because -he- wasn't informed that they were going to train. The rest of the City was perfectly fine with it.
This is Ohio - not California. That kind of behavior towards our armed forces isn't tolerated. Unfortunately the ignorance by Ohio city leaders on display in Toledo is tolerated.
True, this seems to be more about petty personal pique on the Mayor's part. Several readers also noted that this is a Name That Party scenario, and that, unsurprisingly, the Mayor turns out to be a Democrat.
