Why are we not surprised, II?

Or, "George, George, George..." redux. From 27East:

State Parole Board Again Denies Former Lawmaker's Bid For Early Release

"Freedom has once again eluded former Suffolk County Legislator George Guldi, who, earlier this month, was denied parole for the second time since being incar­cer­ated at an upstate prison five years ago for his role in a multimillion-dollar mortgage fraud scheme."

Freedom isn't the only thing which eluded my one-time neighbor George... how 'bout "remorse" or "contrition?"

The tale of the scorpion and the frog is instructive here; neither act is within George's nature.

While I didn't attend this second parole hearing, there's little doubt in my mind that what sank George's chances for success was less his inability to express remorse or contrition, then his insistance on lecturing the Board on the portions of the law that trial Judge James F.X. Doyle got wrong when sentencing him.

OtBB will revisit this again 1½ years from now.

...three hots and a cot – what's not to like, I guess?

Range of motion, I would imagine.
