The Best Judges Money Can Buy

Welcome to Luzerne County. When the FBI gets finished here, only the courthouse janitor will be found innocent, and everyone in the county will be disheartened enough to keep from voting for their replacements.

One judge we knew was corrupt; another we thought was honest; then there was a trip to Las Vegas for honorable reasons which cost us money the participants should have charged themselves, including (I’m pretty sure about this) a stop at some strip joint.

Then this, then that, then the next thing.

The newspapers made noise, but these people’s defenders came out with their favorite phrase: “Liberal Media.” Once again, the liberal media is destroying our way of life, our judges, our legal system. I’m not all that convinced the media is liberal or, if so, it’s all that bad. It certainly couldn’t be as bad as the judge who sent very minor juveniles up the river for months in juvie without benefit of lawyers or, in some cases, even parents.

In today’s “Inquiring Photographer” newspaper feature, I think three people out of five said, “Clear out the courthouse and start over.” The other two were only slightly less definitive in their views, but not by much.

Can we trust the people who are now running for office? Or will they be just as crooked as those who are going to jail? It’s still Luzerne County.

the media should be neither liberal nor conserative, how about if they at least tried to be objective?

Had Steve Corbett (WILK Radio) on today. The "boys" left town for the "Sunshine State" before they rot in Sheol!
