Words of Wisdon on South Tampa

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Busy Writing FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III: W...":

The old South Tampa crowd is a bunch of hillbillies who think they own the world. They don't dare go anywhere outside Tampa to live or work, because they would be uncovered as the fools they are. This county and district is full of people who could never make it anywhere, but they make it in Tampa, because they have lived here forever and made friends with everyone. It is the Good Ol' Boy system in the worst sense of the phrase. We need the FBI to come in and shake things up!

Lee's comment: The writer above has told the God's truth about South Tampa. Remember what a fool and liar Jennifer Falliero made of herself sneaking into South Tampa out of her district, then caught by the press, then lying about the move, then coming clean when even she realized she couldn't get away with the scam and be the board member from her district?

Ignorant, unsophisticated people live in South Tampa. How do I know? I lived there for nineteen years when my husband's company opened an office in Tampa. We didn't know we were living on Holy Ground in South Tampa. We just wanted a house close to my old man's office, close to HCC, and close to the schools.

This toilet-paper comment summarizes the level of culture that resides in South Tampa: one of the society matrons that dominate Tampa's social life went to Europe. I heard her say when she got back, "Hon, you should have seen the toilet paper over there. You wouldn't believe it." She didn't mention going to the Louvre.

Here's some ST gossip. Tom Gonzalez lives there. One of the first things he tells you when you first meet him is that his ancestors are Castilian and come from that part of Spain where all the people's blood has gold dust in it; he wants it known that his folks have nothing at all to do with those tacky old Y-bow City mongrel Hispanics.

My grandma had some Castilian chickens. I swear there's a breed called that. I asked Grandma if they were special chickens. She said, "They are supposed to be. But I wouldn't buy any of that breed of biddies again." "Why?" I asked. "Because they don't lay worth a darn," grandma said.

I am still working on my FBI thesis. I want to get all the words spelled right and the commas in the right places. I think the head guy now went to Yale. Or maybe it was Harvard. Or Saskatchewan Agricultural College and Beauty School, where Linda Kipley got her home-ec degree. You have to be careful with such elevated people. They can get snotty over the least little thing.

The reason they never hire a Superintendent from outside the county is that the Super would uncover all the good ol' boy favors and slaps on the back. The criminality of the board members would be exposed. You are totally right when you repeat that the $35K nationwide search for a new superintendent was a sham. They like to act like you are crazy, because they have to in order to make a show to the public that they are above board. In reality they are nothing but a bunch of gutless criminals.

South Tampa is known (to outsiders) as the PLASTIC SURGERY capital of America. I swear to god. I read that in a trusted publication. Can't remember where. Why bother with plastic surgery? Too much wrong that no miracle doctor could fix.

I'm certain that corrupt school officials' willing minions have informed their masters about your intention to contact FBI.
FBI most likely needs an insider to gain access to inner chamber of corruption that is rife in Tampa's public sector. Lee, you stopped HCC administrators from using public assets for personal gain. You managed to get local newspapers on that particular trail. I hope you can have some school district insiders to forward you info.

Hopefully, a bunch of disgruntled school district employees who work in ROSSAC will spill the beans to the FBI and maybe the FBI will clean house for us.
