Quote of the day

madFrom the PNJ: when they asked Commissioner Whitehead about whether County Atty. Janet Lander had committed on his aborted purchase of surplus county property:

“It’s not her position to comment,” Whitehead said. “She’s my attorney, not yours.”

No, Mr. Whitehead, Lander is the attorney for the citizens of Escambia County. You may hire or fire her, but her obligation is more than just covering your butt.
