Larry Hohol - Judicial Corruption Blog

Larry Hohol, author of "The Luzerne County Railroad" - a book that is not about locomotive-based transportation systems, but rather about getting railroaded by the corrupt judicial system in Luzerne County - has a blog that is timely and relevant as Mark Ciavarella, the main figure in the "Kids For Cash" judicial corruption scandal, is finally sentenced for his crimes - at least, those crimes for which he was convicted.

Northeastern Pennsylvania has a well-known and well-deserved reputation for corruption and criminality. It's not nice, it's not pretty, but it's not something that's going to go away by pretending it's not there. Perhaps in the short term, rooting out the corruption will give NEPA an even worse image. But maybe, with enough effort and enough support from law enforcement agencies at the highest levels, NEPA will be able to excise the corruption that has choked it and held it back for so much of its history, and will finally live up to its full potential.

That would be Mark Ciavarella, not Frank. (I don't want you to get in any liable trouble).

Thanks! And here I was, patting myself on the back for spelling "Ciavarella" right! (I also managed to misspell "Corruption" in the name of the blog link.)

Hi D.B.
Sorry, I didn't know you responded a second time. Sure, you can link me up! We are: clamco is basically a personal blog. It doesn't provide any kind of service or promote anything. I mainly write about Ebay stuff, my running (if you can call it that), my family's travels and experiences, our pets, etc. I try and keep it light and upbeat. "Be positive" is my motto (as well as my blood type!)
Thanks for inviting me!
