Helene Jarvis does it again: Cuts through all the nonsense at The Palm Beach Post

Helene Jarvis has another 'Letter to the Editor' published in the Post (Sunday, 5/16) smacking down the political monkeywrenching in that satirically-challenged article by Frank Cerabino. Excerpts from that letter are below. Use this link to read Jarvis' letter to the Post about Commissioner McVoy's silliness concerning Mayor Pam Triolo's baked ziti and false allegations of Sunshine Law violations. McVoy has since gone completely silent about this nonsense.

Funny how effective really good satire can be, isn't it? Anyhow, below are two excerpts from Jarvis' latest satirical effort:

"I have read all of Frank Cerabino’s wonderfully funny books. I stopped reading his columns when he decided to become a political pundit who lost his sense of humor toward anyone not in agreement with his political views.[emphasis added]
     His column on Tuesday, 'Lake Worth’s classical-music offensive is winning wrong fans,' caught my eye because I am a resident of Lake Worth. He took the city to task for their use of classical music in our town square — done to annoy anyone using the square as 'home.' "

[and. . .]

     "I am still laughing hours after reading his advice, and am hoping our mayor and city commissioners consider his suggestion of 'It’s a Small World' playing morning, noon and night.
     Anyone subjected to that might just consider a fast walk to the other side of the street. Problem solved. Thanks, Frank."

Very well done, Helene, and Thank You for taking the time and effort pointing out all this nonsense.
