Cognizant - you are so correct. Ask all the members of the task force (with the exception of the two that work for FPD) how it was left when he left. Ask them why he left... the heat got really hot on him. They tried to give ... More ›

It's the same old story of politics. After years of mismanagement at the national and local level, find a scapegoat and blame all the past misdeeds on that poor goat. Sorta like blaming Obama for the national debt when ... More ›
