Vanity Fair went to Hazleton recently to report for the magazine's big profile of Rudy Giuliani's wife, Judith -- who, a lifetime ago, was Judi Stish of Hazleton's Nannygoat Hill section. It's not a flattering profile. Hazleton is apparently off-limits to campaign reporters -- "I'm hearing bad reports about you. Bad reports. You interviewed Mrs. Giuliani's father, in Hazleton!" a flack tells the reporter. Judi's mom tells the reporter -- who got to dad first -- that they're not allowed to talk to the press. Good stuff. Hazleton, as usual, is portrayed as the shithole it is.
