Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog

Public Corruption in Chester County, PA

I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

Good journalism lives

"The Soloist" will be on HBO a while longer. You can always get it from the library. 

A minister friend of ours, Dr. John Shetler and his wife had heart breaking experiences with a daughter who struggled with schizophrenia. 

We knew people with the disease, their lives destroyed by it. A pretty young woman who we know was seeing some apparition when she looked at the floor. Meeting a once productive man from West Mt. Airy on the street, a barely recognizable remnant of his former self. 

The healing power of music. 

Sitting 10 rows back from the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Academy of Music. The floor the skin of a drum that sounded a low G resonating through your soul. Transported to a spiritual place. 

I looked forward to reading Steve Lopez' column from back when the Philly Inquirer had a staff. 

Good journalism lives.
