Traficant earned his day
I am writing about the cancellation of Traficant night at the Scrappers. If anyone should have an appreciation night for him it is the Scrappers. Jim Traficant was instrumental in getting the Valley a baseball team.
People don’t have any trouble cheering on baseball players in Major League Baseball who have used drugs, steroids, etc. They stand up and cheer when they come out on the field.
The same goes for the football players in the National Football League. They drive drunk, are involved in drugs and illegal activities, and just get a slap on the wrist for their crimes and we cheer them on.
These are far worse offenses then Jim Traficant has ever done. He has served his time. He has done a lot of good for this Valley and people need to remember that.
