The Humvees were in columns, racing all over downtown. Here they are heading southwest on Superior.
I got stuck at a light behind a Humvee with a large soldier manning a large machine gun.
Don't worry, the Quiznos is still safe for democracy.
While in the past Toledo's downtown has been empty enough to hold these exercises, I doubt this will continue. There is an arena planned for a large part of the area the military uses in these exercises and a number of older buildings are being redeveloped into lofts and apartments, roughly doubling the downtown population in the next two years. Even today the drills caused problems for the thousands of people who attended the annual DIY showcase at the Seagate Center. But the military need not fret, they can always use downtown Flint.
