Readers sound off on Jane Scott, and more


Prosecutorial Misconduct

It's about time somebody came out with the truth about Stephanie Tubbs Jones and Bill Mason, both asleep at the switch and more concerned about guaranteeing their political future than anything remotely concerned with leadership. ["Silent Enforcer," May 25, 2011]. If it weren't for the likes of political deadbeats C. Ellen Connally and Frank Jackson, their political legacy could claim no successors.


Remembering a Legend

I met Jane Scott at a Genesis concert at the Richfield Coliseum in the mid-'80s ["RIP Jane Scott," at the Scene & Heard blog]. As the crowd kept cheering for more encores, she asked my opinion of the show. I replied that the ecstatic crowd had spoken for the show itself. She quickly jotted down the quote and proceeded with her notes on the show with much fervor.

It turned out to be a glowing and accurate review the next day. Of course, I had to tell my buddies that I had met the famed Jane Scott and what an honor it was. Rock fans will miss you, Jane! Hope you get into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame someday. You're truly an original!

Strange Bedfellows

Scratch the surface of a family-values conservative and underneath you will find a sinful, out-of-control sexual hedonist ["Ohio Rep Arrested for DUI With Young Woman Who's Not His Wife in Car," at the Scene & Heard blog]. The best that can be said was at least she was legal and not a boy.

I don't know why Republicans fall for this kind of phony baloney from these holier-than-thou people, but they do it time after time after time after time. You would think they'd learn.

Rimshot, Please

The worst part about this arrest is that it isn't even shocking anymore. It has seemingly become the norm. Look, I love a night out of drinking with a stripper behind my wife's back just as much as the next guy ... but I'm no politician.
