A group of men with muckrakes, combing through the sludge of misinformation and cover-up, bring to light the truths that scoundrels, cheats and other unseemly characters would rather not discuss.

It's the Banks, Stupid!
Someone has been holding up the banks! Quick, police! Description: white males, clean-shaven, mid 40's, well-dressed, business suits, seen driving BMW's.
Funny stuff, eh? Lots of laughs. Here in northwest Ohio, the bank robberies are on the up-tick. Those fuzzy in-bank cameras snap the photos: poorly dressed guy, half-shaven who flees on a bicycle or in a '95 red pickup. The cops usually get their man.
Not on Wall Street, however. Few suspects ever caught. Rather than getting away with a stack of 20's and some red dye, these bandits get millions, or is that billions. No dye. Often a handshake and a smile.
The press doesn't much care either; they'd rather write about the homegrown bandit- the one who the cops catch an hour later. Makes us all feel so 'safe.'
Meanwhile, those well-dressed, titled bank robbers continue to dig deep, filling bag after bag with the loot. We ought not be too concerned, though: after all, they are upright members of society, and they are so smartly-dressed, too!
Been riding my tricycle around the block quite a few years. Got lots of scars. I don't take much crap, so don't go there.
Dislike bigots and Jesus-pimpers most of all and freely give them dope slaps at every opportunity.
