Donovan: Yellow. Mellow? Not so much anymore ...

UpDate: We call him Yellow Mellow, "quite rightly."

Here's why ...

------------

Readers, FYI, we had a status conference in front of Judge Reibman this morning regarding our civil litigation vs. O'Hare.

Guess who was there, cowering and glowering in the back row (and w/ smoke billowing from his nostrils) in support of lawsuit defendant (and Blogging Idol) and Nazareth/NorCo resident O'Hare?

Guess ...

Yep. Allentown City Council Vice President (for now) and Nutty (ethics) Professor Michael Donovan, pictured above rehearsing ways to avoid taking The "Pooley Pledge."

Yesterday, formerly Mellow Donovan was spotted at a South Whitehall Township blog, "Mike's Memory Lane" calling Allentown commenters "jerks" and "assholes." How uncivil (and unhinged) and definitely not mutually respectful. Oh well.

Subject Heading: 2nd "Valley Blogosphere" Blogger Comes Under Fire

Q. Why isn't The Morning Call reporting on the fact that Allentown City Council Vice President, ethics professor, and Morning Call "Valley Blogosphere" blogger Michael Donovan is being investigated by the
Board of Ethics of the City of Allentown?

Allentown voters are entitled to know about this, and a newspaper has a responsibility to inform the electorate.

As regular readers of this blog (we see
Morning Call staffers on our SiteMeter(R) dozens of times every day), you know that Mr. Donovan has published sadistically cruel, false, and clearly libelous comments at his Morning Call-published blog that claim I ...

* engage in necrophilia w/ my deceased daughter

* have made "terroristic threats" against Lehigh County DA Jim Martin

* have "threatened to kill" employees of The Morning Call

These and hundreds of other comments that amount to criminal harassment and libel at Donovan's
Morning Call-published blog are all false.
