Morning Call columnist, blogger, Christmas lights critic, epicure and general bon vivant Bill White claims he knew it all along. "The timing was just wrong," he says about Patti Grube's five-day stint as a member of Northampton County Council. But Bill is dubious that even the "best choice" among remaining candidates will make "much headway with this group."
Au contraire. While Angle is off somewhere searing ants with his magnifying glass and laughing, I've come up with the perfect replacement all by myself - John Acerra. Like so many of his colleagues on council, John is an educator by training and has suddenly become available. This former middle school principal and meth dealer would fit right in, and probably has some innovative ideas for improving the county's cash flow. I know one thing. He'll make sure the county is never caught with its pants down.
