Pills and Potions
At this point, I'm not sure what was allegedly stolen. The logical side of my brain can understand why the LPD would thread cautiously regarding the alleged shoplifting charges since Jay McGraw was one of the aldermen responsible for the decimation of Lumberton's police protection. McGraw also led the brigade to have a couple of deputy clerks terminated. However, only one was willing to come back and kiss his flask to get her job back. As a matter of fact, the dog and pony show was so effective, the clerk that was fired came back with more hours than an existing clerk that never used profanity towards an elected official. Thanks to Jay McGraw, we have three clerks in one office once again. No wonder he keeps his trusty cup with him all the time.
Now the justice side of me believes no one, even elected officials, is above the law. If McGraw was actually caught on camera shoplifting, he should be charged like any other accused thief. Over a month ago, Margie McGraw lambasted me after I was discussed during an illegal strategy session held during executive session. Margie said my blog has made it difficult for her to walk around the block. I wonder if the fact that her husband has been accused of shoplifting after winning $1,000 make the stroll any easier? I'm not sure what's going to happen. I don't know if the manager will pursue charges but I will keep you updated. In the midst of it all, I'm still grateful. One by one, all of the individuals that were scheduled to testify against me are becoming increasingly questionable witnesses. Usually after posting, I brew a nice, hot cup of tea but in honor of Jay McGraw, I think I'll drink some coffee today with a healthy serving of Kahlua. What the hell! I think I'll just make a White Russian. It's 5 o'clock somewhere.
