There are a few of you guys that date back with me all the way to Yahoo Finance that read this including occasional commenters Steve and Russell, who also now runs his own blog plus many more that have been with me here on Slabbed for a bit over 3 years. Post by post and comment by comment we’ve built the very case that Jim Letten’s office did not want laid at its doorstep via relentless search for the truth. People with ties to this area have discovered us in the aftermath of the meltdown at Team Letten and are now relentlessly searching for that truth for themselves on these pages. I like that because I think we’ve laid out a compelling case on many levels and that does not count the human drama that accompanied the events, also told on these pages. As Incroyable has noted, in respects it is better than a John Grisham novel because the community here is watching and experiencing it first hand.
As moderator I get a view of these events at a differing level. Tom, for instance is crawling my post archives on one of the major subplots in the ongoing retaliation against those commenting on the scandal. Get with ‘Gate Tom, because he has the rest of the story and how it fits with the Mark Titus saga. Others have a broader interest in the whole US Attorney commenting scandal such as Muspench, who left an insightful comment on Manuel Torres excellent piece yesterday on the Titus prosecution and forfeiture. Manuel lays it all out including this:
The government sees Fazzio as a key to making a case against River Birch landfill co-owners Fred Heebe and Jim Ward, who have not been charged and have denied wrongdoing.
Why is Big D so important? I know the answer but am sworn to secrecy. I think Manuel and Krewe at NOLA know the answer and they aren’t saying either. The answer is key to understanding how the prosecution is trying to build its case against Heebe for presentation in the courtroom.
Back to Tom and commenter retaliation. I’ll lay down a time stamp and say that I know the cyber identity of the International House commenter with 99% certainty and am 90% certain I know the guy’s real name. Same is true for NolaCat, one of the 11 names subpoenaed by DOJ OIG from the Times Picayune/NOLA Media Group. I am not saying a word because I believe both to be private citizens.
But that isn’t stopping informed readers from speculating and engaging me with that speculation. And the communiques that I think advance the search for the truth need to be shared with everyone. I have a series coming courtesy of a reader that I’ll simply call RICO. Slabbed has high quality readers so in this post I will introduce the person, well actually I’ll introduce the life experience behind the person before I begin rolling out the material: Continue reading “There is an unmistakable buzz in the air……”
