Those watching the Toledo mayor's race may wonder, "Is this the best we can do?"

  • A woman who says God wants her to build Six Flags over Summit Street?
  • An auditor who thinks the current mayor can be blamed for sinkholes?
  • Two councilmen who seem as driven by disdain for the current mayor as for a real desire to lead?
  • Two or three more, so indistinguishable, I have nothing smart-aleck to say about them?

We media types are often complaining not enough people step up to lead, but we're seeking quality, not quantity.

Still, we owe those who step up a thank you, so…Thanks?
