RUBY TUESDAY: Our Reporter Takes A Few Shots Of Whiskey And Covers A City Commission Meeting…

HARLINGEN, Texas – The words bounced through the crowd like tractor-sized boulders. “Did she say she was going to kick Lefty’s ass?” whispered a blue-haired elderly woman dressed in wrinkled Republican clothing. Receiving the strange question, one rarely heard in council chambers, a man in a Lyndon Baines Johnson Stetson hat said this in return, “Nope, think Kori just told Robert to go stick it up his ass.” It was only the beginning of what became the rolling monologue of last night’s Harlingen City Commission meeting, Chapter 12, Verse 23.

Special message to Jerry Deal, Kori Marra, Juan Ortega and company

Special message to Harlingen city commissioner Kori Marra and Jerry Deal

The reason I respond to your requests and only the Valley Morning Star requests is due to the fact that you both have never taken what I have written nor my responses and changed them to what suits your beliefs. With your blog, you do not delete ideas and thoughts (within reason) that do not reflect your personal opinion. I know that at least on your site, people will be allowed to disagree and AGREE with me equally. Without fear that their writing will be deleted. Other sites do this for a fact. For those that believe you somehow favor me…that is a shallow excuse from those to try and discredit you because, once again, you are being fair. I encourage you to not engage them.


In what has become a “meltdown” watch, Kori is living up to the billing. In tonite’s EDC-City commission meeting, Kori made a comment about extended meetings. Jerry P then retorted, “what are you talking about, you haven’t been to the last 3 meetings.”

I propose we have a collection for kori. Did you notice how smooth the last city meeting went? I mean there was no cackling, threats, gunshots, etc…and all because kori was gone. It was nice not hearing how unfair she was being treated, or whining about this or that. Gosh, it was almost heavenly.
