Judge Ziegler Molested by JT Editorialists

I have not followed the Annette Zeigler saga with any particular zeal, and I am sure that I will be corrected if mistaken, but Zeigler has not been accused of or convicted of a crime. That bit of information might come as a surprise to anyone who read the Journal Times editorial this morning. Read it here for yourself: http://www.journaltimes.com/articles/2008/01/16/opinion/doc478d47c13070c861078884.txt

From the editorial: "It is true that Ziegler did not commit a major crime..." and "While not a violent crime..." and "Fifteen days' suspension would be innapropriate because her crime was not violent." Gee, might the reader conclude that Judge Ziegler has committed a crime?

Now it is true that the molestation of Zeigler by the Journal Times was not a major crime, and while the molestation was not of a sexual nature, I believe that the Journal Times should nonetheless discontinue the practice of molesting women.

Who's writing the editorials down there now that Steve Lovejoy has been promoted to Editor? Is it Chris (Glad U Asked) Bennett?

Someone should ask him if he has ever made a mistake! And did he volunteer to take 5 days off without pay to atone for his actions?

Geeeeeesh!

cforc, I asked a JT reporter that very question. If I remember correctly, he said that several people take turns.

How balanced...like the pork and earmarks in Congress...let Ziegler rule in court on family matters...

Huh? Wha...? Your use of ellipsis...makes about as much sense...as your comments.

I think...the perfect account name for you...would be "ellipsis"...
