A very unwelcome idea

A very unwelcome idea


After seven years of incarceration, our former Congressman Jim Traficant was going to be honored by the Mahoning Valley Scrappers. The “Welcome Home, Jimbo” celebration was to include a slide presentation of his illustrious career.If the Scrappers wish to showcase someone of real importance, why not choose someone actually worthy? Some possibilities: local members of the military or our safety forces, an outstanding teacher — role models for our children.

I liked Jim Traficant at one point, but he is now an ex-convict. Period.
