Meet Laurence McCall

Last week I wrote a column about how the EEOC is looking to make it easier for ex-cons to sue businesses that decline to consider them for jobs. I think it's a dumb idea.

Ex-con Laurence McCall respectfully disagrees.

McCall has a interesting past. As a teenager he stole more than $300,000 in paintings and other artifacts from the Alfred Deshong Museum. How he managed that is the subject of tomorrow's print column. Stay tuned.

Mr Spencer,
Thank you for publicly telling Mr McCall's story and locating him for those, like myself, who have wondered about him for over 30 years. I am a former classmate of Larry's at Chester High School. I remember him from 10th Grade - "Brilliant." I often wondered what major Corporation would discover Larry's talents or what entrepreneurial venture he would pursue.He was reading the Wall Street Journal in high school when many of us never heard of it until college.
We would sit in class for weeks. Larry would come to class sparingly and ALWAYS know more than all of us that had never missed a day of school.
Larry your brilliance is still within you! Email me if you want to re-connect at Harrland08@sbcglobal.net
