  1. Didn't Ed4Ed get elected on the "stop suing" platform? So isn't he just suing himself?

  2. Yup. Ed4Ed said get rid of all the lawyers. Talk it out. All BS when he ran for BOE. WHY are they trying to get people to donate? Ed and Lucy have lots of money. So do other villagers- in fact the one running the CHC gets paid $600k a year!! Crock or Crap. Ironic Ed didn't put this on the Eye!!!

  3. That is right ED promised to end all lawsuits on the BOE.. typical liberal.. IT's okay for me to sue and do whatever I want, but if YOU do it, well..........

    I am waiting for Stephen H. Devoto to do his next BIG story on the Alexander/Masselli non-profit investigation... Right, although it is wrong for MM to make $600k a year, since they are liberal they are entitled to it.. How many school teachers would that amount employ?

  4. Good morning - Arthur Fonzarelli and your troll friends. I would suggest you hitch up your XXL sweatpants and finish your bag of Dorritos as it is time to leave the safey of Molly's basement and come out into the spring sunshine.

    From your fellow troll.

  5. Put down the beer Ed.
