  •  we also do not know the date the quote (0+ / 0-)

    The governor's spokeswoman, Nicole Corcoran, said both parents "are very proud of their son John's creativity and talent."

    was made .. that could be from years ago.

    It's a poorly written piece of trash, and typical for the traditional media. It's a given the intent is to stir up something, and people here take the bait without getting all the facts.

    Same.as.it.ever.was.

      found many references to the story dating back as far as Jan. 22nd.  It appears that the spokesperson was responding directly to questions about "Don't Drop the Soap."

      It is possible that the spokesperson made it up or was quoting them from earlier statements. I have no direct knowledge, only what can be found online.

        We have no knowledge, but that's OK .. there's a narrative to be told, and without facts you have told it, made your point and it has wide acceptance here.

        I don't fault you personally for it.

        It's just an observation.
