Good old Harry Jones. That boy is something else. Anybody ever wonder why Bill James is so strangely silent when it comes to Harry? Conservative darling Bill James is as gutless a fink when it comes to Harry as the rest of them.

As much as it pains me to say this, Harry Jones would have been gone LONG ago if he were not African American.

We really haven't come far enough when someone who is so grossly incompetent is not fired BECAUSE of his ethnicity.

As someone said, he would have to be standing over a dead body with a smoking gun in his hand!

I mean, come on, how many more times can he be caught out and out lying?

Is he really "teflon"? Nothing sticks, but no one really believes his "spin".

So why isn't he gone, I'm afraid the race card is the only one that makes any kind of sense.

Orr the idiot, Jones and his funny money and kick backs, Monroe and his lies, and Walton telling City Council all is well.... priceless~

My take on the entire mess: There is something inherently wrong with city and county managers who answer to no one.

As the public looks in all we can see is a business that operates unsupervised and without any fiscal restraint. A business that looks more like Enron or Bernie Madoff's ponzi scheme every day. An operation were lies and double books are the status quo and judgement has been thrown completely out the window. But the common dominator of these four is their belief that they are untouchable and the absolute contempt they have for the taxpayers.

The solution is simple, Orr at 70 is past mandatory retirement age, Jones is out under the three strikes rule, Giving Tree, BoA email caper and now DSS, Monroe doesn't have the required college degree and has made no attempt to rectify the situation, and Curt Walton has failed to properly vet Monroe and supervise Orr.

Charlotte deserves better.

But as usual those who oppose them are called racists....

And here we sit all of us doing nothing.....WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT US?

Jerry Orr is 70? Cedar are you sure? I'd guess that might have a little something to do with his I don't give a crap attitude.

I think Cedar has it right, fire all four of them, 2 white guys 2 black guys and that should stop the racist talk.

Let's move on this ASAP.

I'm thinking that Harry Jones and his DSS paid something like 4 million to Crown cab in 2009, with no back up paperwork to account for the fares.

Just saying...
