This week, the Graveyard Rabbit of Sandusky Bay discovered the grave of Arthur Phinney, Sandusky High School principal from 1867-1870, who later became a lawyer.

"'As a lawyer his tastes were quiet and studious; in legal research he was painstaking and accurate, and his conclusions when formed were relied on with tenacity and sincerity.' He was considered by the community, as well as his peers, to be an honest lawyer."

Graveyard Rabbit,

So, are you saying that the only honest lawyer is a dead lawyer?

Get a clue, 4shizzle.

"According to the HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1864: YALE COLLEGE, Arthur Phinney was the son of James and Cynthia (Mosher) Phinney, having been born on March 28, 1837 in Gorham, Maine. He graduated from Yale in 1864. After graduation, Arthur Phinney worked with the Scientific Department of the Sanitary Commission. In 1865, he became the principal of the Chester Academy at Chester, New York. From 1867 to 1870, Arthur Phinney was the principal of the high school for Sandusky City Schools in Sandusky, Ohio. After studying law in Sandusky and the Michigan Law School, Arthur Phinney was admitted to the bar of Ohio in 1872. Mr. Phinney practiced law for many years in Sandusky, Ohio. He and his wife, the former Sara E. Bell, had three daughters. An article in the Sandusky Star of May 23, 1899 stated that "As a lawyer his tastes were quiet and studious; in legal research he was painstaking and accurate, and his conclusions when formed were relied on with tenacity and sincerity." He was considered by the community, as well as his peers, to be an honest lawyer."

It appears to me that the Sandusky Register moderators are allowing the trolls and flamers to take control of the comments section. Many good people have stopped posting comments. One set of guidelines for the trolls and flamers and another set for those who speak the truth or give good opinions.

It appears to me that the Sandusky Register moderators are allowing the paranoid personalities with vengeance to take control of the comments section.

"...in another set for those who speak the truth or give good opinions."

Who would that be? Certainly not you.
