Scardale's version of the November 2010 Elections.

Not Quite.

More like this.

If you want further details go to this link and do search in the Scarsdale Patch.

During these harsh economic times, even Scarsdale has been taken a beating. But apparently some people did not get the memo. This includes the geniuses who wanted an indoor pool/community center courtesy of the taxpayers. And outrage over larger class sizes. It was probably a little disheartening when a certain middle school principle told a group of parents that when he was worried about it, they should be worried about it.

Despite having sky high property taxes, Scarsdale is hemorrhaging money and is looking for other ways to raise it.

So a bunch of "Scarsdalians" (Yes. They call themselves that.) got together and formed a coalition to take over the Village.

2011 is going to be, wait for it,

Justice for Annie

We have closure and justice for Annie.

Raymond Clark Pleads Guilty to Murder of Yale Grad Student Annie Le

There were certain details that were revealed about the crime that are even more sickening. But somehow it gets even more twisted.

Outside the courtroom today, Clark's father Raymond Clark Jr., said, "It is a heavy heart that I stand here before you today. We will live out our life knowing that he is behind bars. But we are proud of Ray for taking responsibility for his actions and pleading guilty. I want you to know that Ray has expressed extreme remorse from the very beginning. I can't tell you how many times he sobbed uncontrollably, telling me how sorry he is; telling me how his heart is tortured by the reality the he caused the death of Annie."

You're proud of him? Are you f**king kidding me? No wonder your kid grew up to be a sociopath. You probably encouraged this type of behavior. If you had any sense of decency, you would have done the right thing the moment your son admitted to you the truth.

The best thing you can do for your son is send him a couple of dresses. The crimes he has committed puts him on the lower end of the prison hierarchy. And with the publicity surrounding this piece of trash, there is going to be a line out his cell for inmates to establish "relations". Maybe the plea deal was a bad idea. A trial would have delayed the inevitable and he might have ended up with the death penalty. Which sucks but it might have kept him away from general population.

The Times They Are A-Changin

Let's take a moment. A moment to breathe. A moment to remember those who have been lost. A moment to figure out where we are.

Yes. The times are changing. And we should change with them. But before we make those changes we should make the effort to see where we stand, where we have been and where we are going.
