How awful! Got a note from an ICT reader. He/she wrote: “Thought you might be interested in this. Dear God!”
Attached to the note was an ad, an ad for Paul Giorgio – Massachusetts’ newest Justice of the Peace. Justice of the Peace!? You’ve got to be joking!
This time it was my turn! “My God!” I screamed. Why would anyone want Paul Giorgio, an alleged pedophile, to marry them, to say the words that make two people one, to help consecrate such a special day?
I’ll go one step furthur: why would anyone want Giorgio at their wedding – period?
The newspapers, including InCity Times, covered the Giorgio case: In a 2003 civil suit, Marcos Arroyo claimed that Giorgio twice had sex with Arroyo in 1986 when Arroyo was under the age of 16. Continue reading Alleged pedophile is now a Justice of the Peace for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts →

First let me say this: I loved (still do) The Jackson Five. On our WCCA TV 13 show “Straight Talk” (which airs Mon. 11:30 p.m, Thurs. 7:30 p.m. and Fri. 11:30 A.M.) I talked of how, when I was a little kid, I used to cut out the Jackson Five 45’s that adorned certain cereal boxes. It was so much fun to get the Alphabits cereal and have my mom pour out the stuff into a big mixing bowl to give me the now empty cereal box. I would then run for my scissors and cut that “record” out – no bigger than a saucer, really. Then I would slap it on my Close and Play portable record player and dance all over the house!
