Letter to the Editor

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

There was a big hoo-hah because Michael Ocello was running for School Board for the Mehlville School DIstrict. He served from 2006 to 2011. To my knowladge, PT's never made an appearence at a job fair.


The complete text of my comment letter to the editor

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch asked for comments on Michael Ocello President and Chief Operating Officer of VCG Holding Corp. VCG Holding is the parent company of PT's Showclubs. PT's is a chain of strip clubs across the country. They have no clubs in Missouri, but they do have 5 clubs in Illinois, right across the river.

The Post published the first paragraph on my comments in the Sunday, March 5, 2006 paper. Here is the complete text


Get real people. Do you think G-strings are going to be added to the cheerleader uniforms? Think field trips to PT's for career day are on his agenda? Yes, I think you can be a concerned parent and own strip clubs. I think you can pay for college being a stripper.

If I lived in the Mehville district I would be more interested in his opinions on 'No child Left behind', graduation rates, what is included in the science curriculum, and test scores.

There have been several stories about the fact that PT's charitable events have had difficulty finding charities that will accept the money. If the PT's topless car wash pays for the new Astroturf for the football field it is ok with me.

All that being said, I don't think he has a chance. Too many people will never hear what he has to say on issues for him to be elected.
