I rush home from work and run for this weeks Suburbanite, the highlight of my week. Almost like reading the Star magazine at the supermarket checkout.
In it we find the regular ranting of Ron Schwartz, this time in some silly sarcastic letter about donations from non-profits, as well as the regular weekly bash on either Gussen or Rudulph. Ever Since Rudolph got a quarter million for a handicapped playground they've laid off him.
So Prosnitz (did he work for the Sun or Star?) decides its Gussen's turn. He rips into him for his diversity comment which appeared in the Record (another winner of a paper) last week. He then want on to quote two township citizens using them as models to help his bash. Gussen can cure cancer and those two would still have a reason to be upset at him.
Prosnitz then said that Gussen claims the Record "terribly misquoted" him. Prosnitz goes a step further and then claims that Gussen makes the same statements about the Suburbanite. Prosnitz even points out an editorial that the Suburbanite wrote (10/11)about misquotes (you may have missed the editorial- its the first relevant one in years- most are about apple pie or the best way to hang a shingle on your shed).
So what's new??
I do not speak Hebrew other then a few token words, so I thought it was time to go to sleep. I get an email sent to me (email@example.com) advising me to re-read the entire letter to the editor about Monica Honis and her nasty parking habits. It appears that Ms. Honis consistently blocks her sidewalk with the car, forcing people to walk (aka jaywalk) on the street. I do not doubt the letter writer's facts whatsoever, because it was very well documented, down to the type of cars in the driveway.
HOWEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The letter was signed by " Ani Iparon". Who is that you might ask? Ani is Hebrew for " I am" and Iparon is Hebrew for "pencil".
Basically, this paper, which appears in our driveway every week, publishes a letter to the editor bashing a councilwoman (regardless if she was right or wrong that's not the point) and doesn't even bother to verify the existence of the write. Worst off it publishes it using as prank name!
Yet it defends its accuracy on all other issues............... Can we get this crap off our lawns now???
