    Just goes to show that those awards are completely worthless.

    It's a great day for people who fabricate columns and never get fired. Congratulations you worthless piece of shit.

    Was Walzer on the awards panel?

    Filler used to go to Walzer's house and cook for her.

    Never met Lane Filler, but I know the T-L lets things get in print now that wouldn't have made it pre-Connor. Today's business section has a story about the 25 year old Wyoming Valley Mall built in 1971.
    It's no typo because the reporter later writes "quarter century."

    2007 - 1971 = 36

    2007 - 1971 DOES NOT = 25

    (It's called subtraction.)

    Never mind that the mall story was a hanndjob of the first order. Business stories are now assigned by the retail advertising manager.

    That stupid mall story was written by that Ron Bartizek. He's awful. But they're stuck with him. He's one of the great McHugh-Walzer hires.

    I have been having my own little battle with Lane on one of his web post sites about his assertion that Americans owe no more allegiance to one another than to the rest of the world...of course, he's advocating for mass immigration under the auspices of humanitarianism.
