  1. Would’ve loved to have been a fly on the wall at that meeting at WHAS when stories were handed out. ‘And you, you get the drugs in the vagina story!’

  2. Headline needs correction: There’s MORE crime and MORE hype that there isn’t as much crime!!! You can add to the ‘crime’ the fact that the local media is completely ignoring the ‘big stuff’ and is wearin’ out that ole City Councilwoman. My goodness she took $30k or something, meanwhile Happy Jerry gave a downtown city block away to Cordish — FOR A SHOPPING MALL!!!!! How’s that ‘shopping mall’ doin’ for ya?
