...I like a good joke. the words "ranting and raving" in an editorial piece? Seems like... a joke, "jokey journalism." What is funny and apparently worthy of "toasting" "Egocentric 2011, Chairman" David Betras about? Bertram, besides David Betras, I am curious, maybe you would like to let the rest of the people who were born in the Mahoning Valley in on your joke?! Are we having anything good to toast with? some canei? some maltini and rossi aste spumante? molson ice? what? something else besides nonalcoholic, chickory coffee, warm or cold mystery beverage or tap water, are we gonna live a little and have alcoholic lol "non-mahoning county or other county lol mostly non alcoholic, make no mistake...jail drinks?" alcoholic drinks? what kind of toast is it if you are having a toast with non-alcoholic drinks you get in the mahoning county jail? I can tell u first hand mahoning county jail sure as h*ll ain't catered by, you won't be getting any lol anheuser busch superior beverage quality products lol in mahoning county jail! lol at least not the "good stuff'"anyways! lol

probably a case where a jury of mahoning valley citizens will acquit or has a hung jury over deciding these guys. it's like the movie copland if it ever went to trial instead of the classic shootout at the end of the movie. no way they will start putting guys who just win elections doing things they were ordered by judges to do in jail or prison. makes no sense. Mahoning valley is mostly working class, democrat. Strollo, Philomena, Traficant and some of the other cases of "high profile Mahoning Valley corruption?" as if the mahoning valley ever was, is or wil everl be high profile lol anyways?! those guys unfortunately were screwed by the legal system, it's like chinese marbles, yahtzee or... the legal system in the valley past verdicts, some current verdicts, and future verdicts, crazy, hopefully jurors will wake up and acquit or at least have a hung jury dismissal of charges (hung jury is probably the best thing then the agencies and the judge(s) involved-- the burden is more on them when there are hung juries)maybe the judges would be less interested in making citizens life outside of the court hell? some people have never been to court and have no interest in ever going to court, why does law enforcement, certain agencies, drag people into court? is what some jurors are looking for the answer to this... anyways... ridiculous... you don't even need a written marriage license to be legally considered married to somebody in Ohio, there is a time limit, I'm not sure what the "commonlaw" law is but live with somebody for a certain amount of time in the state of Ohio and u can be considered married to that person in the state of Ohio, just look it up online. I know for a fact a written marriage license is not a mandatory requirement for a couple to be considered married in Ohio, outside of that, what the hell does the system lol keep dragging people into court for? again, makes no sense! good question. lol before the jurors will be next to be on trial, instead of the jurors just being jurors. consider that next, is just as plausible. I would, in 2011... there is the internet, the paper, tv, smartphones, I'd watch who I would want to judge too harshly or sometimes even at all, as a citizen, in law enforcement, as an attorney, in any profession ,cause that stuff can come back on you if u choose to judge too harshly... sometimes juries never realize this, sometimes the trial judge fails to explain this or does the standard explanation of what the juror is to do during the trial, but it has happened-- people are selected as jurors then... anything can happen after that... so kind of like... what is the saying? Be careful what you wish for?

I think that there is corruption, what have you done for me lately bartering going on in courtrooms in Bangladesh. what does it have to do with me being tackled by a sarasota florida deputy sherriff, my motorcycle being repo'd, my driver's license being suspended, a felony dui charge? what can prevent the rogue cop from doing this to me again in the future? nevermind what I did wrong, which was nothing. what can prevent the rogue cop from doing this to me again in the future?! Hello?! Thank You.

For clarification: Now I can go back to my regular The Vindicator reading schedule of the only thing I read from The Vindicator is the obituaries.

Sticks and stones may break my bones but words may never hurt me. Now I can go back to my regular schedule of only reading The Vindicator obituaries.

Er, excuse me, correction, The Vindicator, not, the Vindicator. I only read The Vindicator obituaries to see who died.

I am wasting my time reading these Youngstown features, really to anybody who cares... since the Vindicator has articles, editorials... consider this next sentence to be my last comment on vindy.com. I only read the Vindicator to check the obituaries section (to see who died).
