Going Gamboling

Drexel Hill's Gambol's Cafe was recently the scene of a drug bust. The owners, Mike and Carol Gambol, were mortified when Upper Darby Police Superintendent Mike Chitwood was quoted as saying he was going try to get their liquor license pulled.

Almost as mortified as when I showed up to demand a cup of their crab soup.

My print column is up.

You really can't criticize Chitwood. After all, guilt-by-association is a well-known and long-recognized legal precedent.

Look at Penn State. Obviously, Joe Paterno is a criminal, despite his 40 plus years of honor and integrity, just because a former coach,Sandusky, is accused of child abuse.

The media lynch mob is far more important than any person's or any business's reputation.

Jake - I agree with you. To a degree. Putting the cart before the horse can end up with the horse biting your ass. But your defense of Paterno is just as bad. Why comment at all? What is it about us that makes us want to draw conclusions before all of the facts are in? We have to get past this circling the wagon mentality, and take a more wait and see aproach. My biggest problem with the Sandusky case is the fact that he was released on unsecured bail, and without an ankle monitor.

It seems apparent to me that people now tune out Chitwood more and more. He has the cried wolf syndrome, a long history of making a mountain out of a mole hill.

He had no impact on Pat Meehans yes vote on National Reciprocity decision.

Because I love Jake, I will no longer comment on the Penn Sate issue!

Chitwood isn't the issue for me.It has to do with the fact that Gil got dupped @ Gambols.The owners kissed his ass and got him to spin it there way.They knew all about what was going on in there bar restrooms & there payoff poker room.And Gil was soo blinded by Carols fake greif that he didn't notice the sniffling rite in front his face.If Gil was a good reporter,he would put his personal opinion aside and maybe get the real story first before getting conned by a coke junkie.May GOD forgive you Carol,for turnning your back on one of the men who supplied you.GO TO REHAB!!!!!!
