Soundbyte from Ohio

My hotel in Streetsboro, Ohio dropped a copy of The Plain Dealer, which appears to be a local newspaper. I felt compelled to share a small soundbyte to my neo-liberal friends: Along the headline "Tiny Ohio town holds clue to casinos' future", there's a soundbyte from Phil Burress, head of Citizens for Community Values: "Sex, drugs, and gambling. If you've got one, you've got the other two. They are heading down the Sin City road." After all, if we have private citizens having sex in the privacy of their own homes, we're already on the road to ruin.

Everyone I'm sure, knows that when something goes wrong somewhere,
anywhere, anytime it is automatically SCOTT'S FAULT. Your dog ran away?
SCOTT'S FAULT. Your car won't start? SCOTT'S FAULT. Your power got
shut off because you forgot to mail the check? Yep, once again, SCOTT'S
FAULT. It is very similar to the "six degrees of separation" theory.
Somehow everything can be tied back to Scott.
