Former Mayor John Rips Johnsville News as Antichrist Mouthpiece

In a recent letter to the editor former Lord Mayor John tears us a new orifice. John thinks The Johnsville News has allied itself with the antichrist. He says:

...And I especially need to distance myself (from The Johnsville News) if you stick in any more propaganda about that lying draft-dodger el-Presidente of ours. Whom, by the way, I seriously suspect of being the antichrist. Lets face it, the antichrist wouldn't SAY he was the antichrist. He would probably even pretend to be a pious man - while covertly working to destabilize civilization, destroy the environment, build religious intolerance, support the money-lenders, and encourage the power brokers to subjugate the meak(sic). He would accomplish all this with bold, blatant tactics that would be hard to disguise, while bold-faced lying about it to sooth the ignorant masses who are eager to slither along the low road with the rest of the unthinking sheep. Yup - the antichrist.

But keep up the good work.

We are seriously confused and hurt by his rant. We have absolutely no clue what John is talking about. The Johnsville News has never intentionally posted a nit of antichrist propaganda nor do we plan to. We are again reminded that former Mayor John periodically goes off his medication and sees the antichrist crawling up his pants. But, it has been pointed out to us that David Hasselhoff may in fact be the antichrist. We do apologize for getting that one very wrong.

Update 6-Feb-04: The Johnsville News is off the hook as an antichrist mouthpiece. Some bad link karma must have zapped us, because John our former Lord Mayor has given us a reprieve. In an email today he says: " terribly sorry to have misjudged you". We are now on double secret probation with John. So we will link the straight and narrow and continue to hew to the "Monarchist" party line.
