This was a great piece. I didn't know Sims and don't have as rosy a view of 80s Wilkes-Barr as Connor does. But I appreciate the nice piece for a local.

It's just scary to think that someone went into the TL to take this picture of Connor's plaque.

Doesn't Connor realize that you can't get advertising revenue from dead people? His "I'll write a nice puffery column if you'll continue to advertise with the TL" approach is sickening. And for God's sake will someone please tell Soprano to stop putting that enormous picture of Connor on the Web site.

Oh, there's news alright, just not enough people willing to take out an ad to get their news in the paper. Why run a good news story when you can hear this old, insane cowboy rant on and on about sh/t no one cares about.
