Dear Ray,

The time has come for you to cut Richburg and Odom loose, and cop a plea. The first one to deal is going to get the best deal. Based on the Miami Herald story, the latest from Richburg’s files pretty much makes conviction a foregone conclusion, and they are in a lot better position than you to weather what’s coming.

If you jump in quick enough you might avoid prison, but I have to be honest, if the State’s Attorney has a political bone in his body, he has to see this case as the basis for a run at Attorney General. Saving the state $6 million in hard times and battling corruption look really good on a resume, and your political “friends” have already deserted you.

Cutting the deal can be your first step towards redemption, and you have to know either one of the others wouldn’t hesitate to sell you down the river.

The time has come to tell the truth.

More Quality Local Construction

The Local Puppy Trainer covers that quality in Walton County: New $4.6 million beach access lot needs repairs

MIRAMAR BEACH – Less than two weeks after a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the reopening of the Miramar Regional Beach Access, a crew already is at work repairing damage to the parking deck.

What caused the crack in the pavement is not clear, but those involved with the project suspect it was caused by an overweight UPS truck that drove into the lot on Tuesday or Wednesday, said Sonny Mares, executive director of the Beaches of South Walton Tourist Development Council.

The TDC helped fund the $4.6 million project, which took about eight months to complete.

A UPS truck? This sucker broke because a UPS truck drove on it?

This is what you get with low bid. I sure didn’t see any rebar in the picture.

Cyber Security Tsar?

CNN reports on the latest silliness: Obama creates position to guard online security

WASHINGTON (CNN) — President Obama announced Friday he is creating the post of cyber security coordinator to oversee “a new comprehensive approach to securing America’s digital infrastructure.”

The president said he will personally select the person who takes on that post.

“I’ll depend on this official in all matters relating to cyber security, and this official will have my full support and regular access to me as we confront these challenges,” he said.

The economic crisis cannot be tackled without ensuring the safety of the nation’s online activities, Obama said. “America’s economic prosperity in the 21st century will depend on cyber security,” he said.
