Stillwater promotes itself as “the birthplace of Minnesota.”
And Minnesota’s Stillwater State Correctional Facility is home to the Prison Mirror, the nation’s oldest, continuously-operated offender newspaper, which “has won many national awards for outstanding penal journalism.” I wonder if former Stillwater mayor Kenneth Frank Harycki will be looking at himself in a prison mirror or penning penal journalism some time soon. Today, we have the news that Harycki’s been charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States.
Seems like only a few weeks ago I was pondering how we seem to have such a lower threshold of morals and scruples when it comes to stealing from the government. It seems that some people view taxes us unamerican and therefore tax evasion is patriotic (seriously).
