Damn you, Toledo, why must you torment us with your cosmopolitan ways?
Larry P. Vellequette of The Toledo Blade reports:
Metro Toledo ranked third from the bottom, ahead of only Detroit and Flint, in an annual survey that measures the economic vitality of the nation's 200 largest cities.
No metropolitan area in Ohio or Michigan scored among the top 100 in the annual Milken Institute's list of Best Performing Cities, but some grabbed spots among the bottom 20. Toledo's 198th rank was worse than its prior year's finish of 194th.
