Any publisher, let alone one as seasoned as ‘Ignatius’, would NOT incur the cost of printing a book and creating a cover UNLESS they had a watertight contract signed up all the authors. I know. I have published books with 4 publishers.

A publisher will not spend a dime until they have a contact. That makes sense.

So, the Ex-Pope is LYING. Plain and simple.

That Ed had some health issues is no secret. He, himself, let it be known, in the Press, before taking some time-off.

I was delighted to see him today at the Laconia Multicultural Festival. He was seated on the lawn. He looked good. We spoke. I met him, when we were both in Laconia Rotary nearly 20-years ago. He tells me he is still Mayor for another month. He is not seeking office again, though from what I gather he will win, easily, again.

Well, I happened to take this picture, from afar, and it is SO ‘Ed’ that I wanted to share.

This is from the November 29, 2012 issue of ‘The Baysider’.

I, as ever, could be wrong, but I think this can only really happen in our ‘Live Free or Die‘ New Hampshire, a newspaper editor openly flaunting that he broke the law. Again, I could be wrong, but I think at least in NH, anything above 85 mph is called ‘criminal speeding’. I am not sure what the speeding laws are in Connecticut.

I am not going to comment on Josh’s speeding. My only concern, as is his audacity to brag about it in print. That seems churlish, though those that know Wolfeboro, NH, know that you can quite literally get away with murder in that town — where Mitt Romney goes to church. [This is also the same newspaper group that published an announcement from an Alton artist where she claimed that she was a ‘voyeur’ — a felony in NH.]

There is something that bothers me, quite a bit. In addition to being editor, Josh’s main role in life is that of a sports reporter for high school sports teams. In that role he is well known to thousands of local teenagers, many of whom would have just started driving. So, we now have Josh, supposedly the adult here, stating in writing, that not only is it ‘OK’ to do 90 mph, that speeding lets you cut down on travel time!

Yes, Josh, as an editor and a columnist in 5 (or 6) papers is a local VIP. As such he is above the law and reproach.

That is a shame. Josh interacts with a lot of coaches — folks who are supposed to instill values, discipline and standards into our kids. But I doubt whether any of these coaches will dare even mention this to Josh.

That is New Hampshire.

If this does bother you, try contacting the publisher of the Newspaper.
