The lame-duck U.S. attorney in Scranton tried to have it both ways this week, making a huge production of some steroid-dealing arrests but refusing to reveal the names of those arrested. Huh? It was a bush-league stunt that, unfortunately, the feds usually get away with. Not this time. Kimm Montone, James Haggerty and Bob Kalinowski of the Scranton Times-Tribune dug through court records and were able to identify almost all the defendants. Nice work. P.S. The TL has been silent, despite most of the defendants living in Luzerne County -- notably Pete Sepling, who was involved in a high-profile Kingston case a few years ago.
