"Good--Not Good"

Posted May 12th, 2014 @ 3:18pm

Hey,'s me.  Read Shepherd.  The afternoon guy who talks around Sean Hannity.  A few years ago, I tried out a blog on this web site we called "Good--Not Good."  If you don't remember it, don't worry.  You aren't alone. It was not, by any means, the most popular destination on the WGY site, but, for the most part, I enjoyed it, and liked offering up my interpretation of some of the news stories we were covering.  At one ever hopped on and said I was a total moron.  In any case, with 12 1/2 years under my belt now in the WGY newsroom, the powers-that-be and I have decided to give it another try under this "Unfiltered" newsroom blog that Mike Patrick and John Craig have taken charge of so well.  So, with that in mind....

NOT GOOD:  I'm sorry, but this farce of a trial involving former Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno is just, in my view, a waste of time.  If he took any kind of bribe from Jared Abbruzese, I'm hard-pressed to see how the Loudonville (now Fla) businessman benefitted from it.  Except he got what maybe he wanted most....a human face for his business ventures.  J-A, by his own admission on the stand, is not a "people person." I can relate to that.  He, like me, hates to go to parties and probably loathes "mingling." Uncle Joe, on the other hand, like him or not, was born for that.  Abbruzese got credibility with their relationship.  "Doors opened," he said on the stand.  Don't see the fraud part of this, and I doubt the jury will, either.  Bring it to an end......
