According to a juicy little tidbit of gossip I heard in the past hour, Jill M. Waite recently wrote an email to the Star Tribune complaining about how a recent article about suspended attorney Jill Clark was allegedly "unfair" and contained "inaccurate" info. Jill Waite and Jill Clark were thick as thieves, back in the day, but Waite was suspended from practicing law over non-payment of taxes and then Clark, well, we all know about Clark.
(Finger-pointing swirly gesture near the head)
But I could almost find myself in agreement with Waite.
The article WAS inaccurate.
It was inaccurate in the sense that it conveyed a sort of deference and respect upon Jill Clark, calling her "controversial" when, in fact, for the last several years the solid consensus in the community has been Clark is, in fact, chock full of nuts.
Of course, when I say "community," I mean...
...normal and decent people. I don't mean mortgage fraudsters and/or their friends and associates, or slumlords, or Level Three Sex Offenders, or the convicted Chat Line Rapist, or members of religious cults, or people with the last name Yzaguirre, or a member of the Vice Lords who has miraculously survived into his dotage.
No, by "community" I mean the people who are competent to assess reality. Lawyers who aren't suspended. Law abiding home owners. Police. Solid, upstanding citizens whose sexual habits do not cause them to have their own special little portion of the Department of Corrections Offender Locator.
In any case, Jill M. Waite thinks Jill Clark is being treated unfairly by the Star Tribune.
Well, let me see if I have a community based, easily accessible, public health resource handily available to deal with Jill M. Waite's feelings about this issue...
Oh, yes, here it is.
I have it.
Just dial 1-800-WAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!
