Below is a report on Judge McFalls who
fired three members of his personal staff and intended to hire his son, but
his son turned down his dad's offer. In lieu of hiring his son, who does
the judge decide to hire on his staff? Well, let's see.

Pittsburgh (AP) -- An Allegheny County judge
said he will hire a former Pittsburgh city councilman and convicted felon
as his court crier, after the judge's son turned down the job.
Common Pleas Judge Patrick McFalls said Ben Woods
accepted the position over the weekend. It pays $32.577.
Woods, 59, was forced to resign as president of the
city council in 1989 after being convicted of racketeering, income-tax evasion,
extortion and conspiracy. ....
Authorities said Woods accepted nearly $48,000 in
bribes from contractors who did work with the city. He served three years in minimum-security federal prisons ....
"He's one of the finest public servants I've known in
my life," McFalls said of Woods. ...."
If the "finest public servant" Judge McFalls knows has
been convicted of racketeering, extortion, bribery, and conspiracy, what does
this say for our public servants, -- and for the quality of qualified court
I don't know about you, but perhaps the judge's son
knew more than we think he did, or was smarter than his father when he turned
down the job. Hummm, anyone have any money to bet that bribery will have its way
again, this time in court? What do you think?
Quiz question: What do you do
with unprofitable public servants? You promote them to a more sensitive
position, and give them a raise, of course!
