A reliable source has explained that Larson did not actually go into the water to save his betrothed. He had one of his minions do it for him. We should have known that there is not one ounce of chivalry in that napoleonic, vicious, little man.
We will all see Dr. Larson on crutches when we congregate next week for his bi-annual "I am the Emporer of Ocean County" speech. Dr. Larson, we have been told, was in a car accident and broke his ankle.
There is contradictory news coming out of the administration building regarding Dr. Larson's fracture. It is alleged that the President of the Adjunct Association invited Dr. Larson and his wife to go out on his boat. The boat, as boats sometimes do, separated from the dock and Mrs. Larson fell into the water prompting Dr. Larson to follow her. This may have been the chivalrous action to take, however the plunge resulted in the ankle fracture. Many things may be said about Presidents Larson's competency as a boss and leader, however, he must be applauded for coming to the aid of his wife.
The bigger question regarding this affair is why is the President of the Adjuncts Union "begging" King Jon to go out on his boat? It is alleged that the Adjunct President had been petitioning Larson for years to go out on his vessel. Could the Adjunct President be ingratiating himself with Larson in an effort to secure favor from him for himself and, perhaps, the adjuncts?
We "Pigs at the Trough" would like to know why the President of the Adjuncts union is cozying up to the president of the college? Does Dr. Larson typically accept invitations from his minions to socialize? Was a quid pro quo scenario involved? Have the two Presidents socialized prior to this maritime outing? Exactly why was the President of the Adjuncts union so desperate to have President Larson on his boat?
Ocean County politics has been rocked by Ritacco's admission of funneling funds to himself from his various business interests. Big cheeses in Toms River have continued to fall this summer with related incidences. Why would King Jon risk the appearance of impropriety to go on a three hour tour with the President of the Adjuncts union?
The Pigs are watching you, Mikey. The SS Sycophant launched much more like the Titanic and, hopefully, those back room deals that you were attempting to secure went down with the ship. The Pigs will keep watching you, Mikey, so keep kissing King Jon's ass and anyone else who can advance you in the tiny world of OCC. We Pigs do like to line up at the trough, but at least our lips are clean when we lift our heads. Can the same be said of you?
