    Someone here has to know the connection. I'm not going to type it, but I'm sure someone knows.

    I hope he sues the shit out of the town.

    For what? It's a right-to-firework state. They can fire him because they don't like the color tie that he wore. If he's fired without cause, as he was, then he gets severance. If he'd been fired for cause, he wouldn't have. They don't even have to have a reason to fire him.

    Short of actually violating employment law (firing him because of his race or a disability, for example), there's no grounds for a suit.

    He's getting something like $50,000 in severance. Enough to make more than a dozen films.

    Depends on what judge he gets.

    Yeah, I know. I still hope he at least ties them up in court for a little while.

    I notice in the article that he has three teen-aged children. If one or more is a boy, can you picture the day Dad brought that home as a future Step-Mom.

    That's the script for an entire porn movie.

    "Son, meet Anabela."

    "Dad, I'm pretty sure her name is Jazella..."

    His position can be changed in seconds with a simple vote.

    It's like that with all town managers, and it's part of the job. He won't fight it.

    I don't see the problem.

    The guy went with the candidate for the position who had the most experience.
