The LuLac Edition #1007, Nov. 14th, 2009



The recent hearings on PCN TV, the newspaper coverage of the Judicial scandal and the charges against a former county official prompted this discussion with an out of town transplant. This time I answered the questions.
Q: Do you know when these indictments are going to stop?

A: I don’t know. This thing is so pervasive it is going to last a while.
Q: How did these people get an office that their father had? I mean that’s like a bloodline in England, it’s like a kid, a dumb kid, an undeserving kid getting a oh I can’t think of the term but it, it……
A: Legacy, I think the word you’re looking for is legacy.
Q: Yeah, yeah, do people just accept that certain families control everything?
A: In a way but let’s not forget that there are sons of former politicians who have done good jobs. ]
Q: I’ll buy that but it just seems like there’s more of it here. These Judges, Ciavarella and Conahan, when they were young, did they get in trouble? Were they bad kids?
A: No, they were exemplary students, hard workers, came from good families.
Q: What happened?
A: Power happened. The way things played out, I think the corruption was so accepted, even at the lower levels that it became a way of life. And then when the individuals got caught, they were stunned. And apologized.
Q: Do you think they apologized for doing bad stuff or getting caught?
A: I’d like to think it was because they realized it was bad but I’m sure it’s because they got caught.

I like the formula of the Lulac Letter and look forward to the regular features. I think you do a great job and deserve a lot of credit for the time, effort and local knowledge you put into the work. However, the Interview feature consistently fails to inform or entertain. Without more interesting subjects I think you
should consider bagging this feature. Just a thought. Maybe Yonks on sports or tall redheads
would be a couple ideas for a new
Saturday feature.

Okay true story. One day I'm with Yonki and he starts asking this cafeteria lady about how much jello she dispenses in a school lunch line, what percentage of the red jello she sold, what percentage of the type of jello the kids asked for, what sold most on any given day, how many boxes they used, wwere they industrial size, etc. It was freaking exhausting. I think the interview feature should be renamed "people I've annoyed this week with my inane questions".

the Jello Q and A sounds more interesting than most interviews
posted so far. usually i just take saturdays off and so should this blogger. most of the other special sections are very good. '68 was very interesting. '64 not so much. wonder what year Yonki will attack next?

Maybe the moderator should accept reader interviews, screen them and print the most interested.

How about a Saturday "The Promiscuous Posting".

The editor could interview promiscuous people he encounters or has encountered.

I'm sure you agree that promiscuity is not limited to sex and that Yonk would bring his style to the interview staying well above the Stern-line.
