According to today's [Toledo] Blade, Mayor Carty Finkbeiner told a company of Marine Corps Reservists they could not conduct their planned urban patrol exercises in downtown Toledo.
"The mayor asked them to leave because they frighten people," said Brian Schwartz, the mayor's spokesman.
This is the most insane thing I've ever heard of. Marines don't frighten me! They give me comfort and confidence that our nation is so well-protected by such dedicated individuals. Perhaps it's only Carty who is frightened. (source).
