Slabbed Daily – August 21

The Daily Journal has a brief story reporting Zach Scruggs “appears” to have been released from federal custody; but, the talented Patsy Brumfield must have been in a hurry as the story “appears” to be thrown together.

David Zachary “Zach” Scruggs, 35, appears to be free from U.S. Bureau of Prisons custody after serving a 14-month sentence for knowing about a felony but failing to report it.

Out of respect for Patsy, I’ll leave the rest of the story for those who want to read he was “reportedly” released from a half-way house transition program in Tupelo on Wednesday or that he has a “degree in accountancy”.

Likewise, out of respect for Judge Biggers, those who want to read the “plead [sic] deal” offered by the government was probation” but he “ordered him imprisoned for 14 months with a fine of $250,000” will need to link to the Journal’s news [sic] story.

Last, and out of respect for Zach, I’ll end without filling this space with platitudes and won’t even repeat the Welcome back! we offered in February.  Instead, I’ll close with this slightly edited version of Sop’s comment.

…if he came back to the coast and wanted to throw back a vodka tonic on a hot summer day chances are we’d join him…Perhaps when he is better able Zach will stop in and say hi. I know we would love to hear from him.

That we would!
