A court reporter saisd she believes she saw Roy Beene in a small town in Mexico when she was on the train that goes through Mexico.The man disappered when she saw him. There was rumor that Mr Beene had faked his death because of some problems he was having at the time. He supposedly died in Acapulco after falling down some stairs.The body was immediately cremated and no investigation done by Mexican police.

Why couldn't that have happened to Pat Lykos?

Lykos is gone.Why not move on to the current problems at 1201?

11:59-
Most of the current problems at 1201 are a direct result of Lykos' mismanagement of the budget and he abhorrent hiring practices. We are all trying to move on even though her problems are like a ship trying to sail with the anchor still stuck in the muck.

Don't be an idiot. Unless you just can't help yourself . . .

C'mon Mr. Newman,

5:48 was just making light of how you all acted when Lykos took office. I find it interesting you personally would call someone out when your past actions were the same.

you have become nothing but a revolving door of thoughts. Wake the F up and take life long stand on matters. Quit being a hormonal politician who changes direction with the breeze.

Anon 5:48 is telling it like it is. It is not any better based on the way decisions have been made.

Anon 5:48, 6:32 and 7:14 are all full of shit. Things are so much better now than they have been in four years, despite Lykos and her crew of doo doo who could fuck up a wet dream. I assume that all of the above listed posters are the same person. If not, maybe you can reach out to each other and have a circle jerk.

Can someone advise how and when John V. O'Sullivan died? Interesting story about Roy Beene...I never saw him try anything.

I agree with 8:18. The complainers need to step up and be specific about what they feel Mike has done that makes him equal to Lykos . I'm guessing the complainer is someone who got fired, demoted, or wasn't promoted.
