More 2011 Fringie® Follies: Scariest Ghost of Fullerton Past
When the sun rose on January 1, 2011, who could have foreseen the strange and disturbing circumstance that would produce a veritable cavalcade of scary ghosts from Fullerton’s olden days.
Sweet Baby Jebus!
And who knew that so many vaporous remnants of Fullerton’s horse and buggy days would be putting in appearances to remind us of the bad old days before talking pictures and x-rays.
1. First we heard the name A.B. “Buck” Catlin, supporter of the anti-recall crew, and inveterate staff stooge/big government RINO when he was on the City Council in the 1880s. Catlin was a proud supporter of every Redevelopment boondoggle in Fullerton’s history; and some that were so hare-brained even his pals wouldn’t support them. How frightful! Good Old Buck was recalled alongside Don Bankhead and Molly McClanahan for promoting a totally unnecessary utility tax. Wow, things don’t change much around here, do they? Shriek!
2. Another scary ghost reappeared to support the Three Dithering Dinosaurs: the hideous spectral phenomenon known as Linda LeQuire. Linda’s image does not appear in mirrors or photographs so you’ll just have to take our word for it. She also popped up to haunt Fullerton two years ago, so I guess we’re just going to have to get used to these biennial visitations! Brrrr!
3. Then there was the horrifying and serial re-appearances of my former, broomstick wielding mistress, Jan Flory. Like her former colleagues she too glady voted to approve an illegal 10% tax on your water bills. Even her offspring are creepy. That’s enough to make you cough up your kibble! EEK!
4. Some purists may quibble that Molly McClanahan can’t possibly be a eerie apparition since she is actually an elected member of the North Orange County Community College District Board of Trustees. But if that isn’t an insubstantial graveyard I don’t know what is. Like Catlin, and Bankhead, McClanahan was recalled in 1994 for backing that shameful utility tax; her eerie manifestation in defense of the indefensible Three Sluggish Sloths says all that need be said about this transparent emanation.
5. And finally, in 2011 we were treated to a horrifying visitation from the Great Beyond in the vacuous form of former city councilwoman Pam Keller. Don’t be fooled by any apparent substance. There’s no there, there.
First she showed up to scream union slogans into a radio show mike; later she appeared at a city council meeting in some sort of cryogenic suit. If that don’t send you shrieking into the night then I don’t know from Milk Bones. Boo!
Feel free to run screaming into the night, yourself.

My money is on Jan Flory for having the balls to give McKinley a Nobel Peace Prize despite all of the havoc and misery he hath wrought on our citizens.
I loved it when she showed up in some black michelin man jacket..whining-I wanted to be mayor! wha wha whaaaaaaaaaaaaa.
I actually felt sorry for her. Looked like she was on the brink of insanity.
If that is the case I sincerely hope she gets treatment.
Insanity is relative when you rake in donations.
Donations are dancing dog heads satan babies push the shopping cart theyre all laughing at me i am sad and angry why are they laughing torment my soul why am i alive we are all of on consciousness the jacket keeps me warm i see with my eyes what my mind wants me to see why are there echos in my head am i controlling my hands or are they controlling me are my thoughts my own or of the consciousness of a superior being the wheels on the bus goes round and round please no daddy please no they touched me they all touched me god told me to do it laptop
In the realm of the distilled spirits in which they all bathe themselves nightly the most delusional forms of thinking and behaviour manifest as a result of the presence of dangerously elevated levels of alcohol dehydrogenase freely flowing through all 40,000 miles of their circulatory system. Next stop, the liver. With their recent introductions of the aspartame and phenylalanine derivatives into the mix we have a freak show on our hands.
No, that’s a special cryogenic suit she had made to preserve her remains.
What a swell walk down memory lane!
What’s funny is how the Old Guard Repuglicans have enlisted the services of the Old Guard Democants. The same losers they screwed over year after year. And the old lady Libs still fall for it!!!
All they can see is barbarians at the gates. The Ackermans see government dollars flying away fast.
Buck Catlin is simply too comical to be frightening. If there ever was a friendly ghost…
Perhaps it was the separate incantations of the Weird Sisters, McClanahan, LeQuire, and Keller that brought forth Hecate to show everyone who could really spread a foul stench among the living.
Flory gets my vote for her deliberate marking of the the living dead. Her cursed gift from the underworld presented to Pat McKinley actually elicited gasps from the horrified crowd of witnesses. Even Dick Jones recognized the seething poison of her words, as he whimpered repeatedly like a frightened villager before the Baba Yaga for her to please stop her incantation so they could all shiver themselves back to sleep.
“Flory gets my vote for her deliberate marking of the the living dead.”
Lol. For the win!
“Linda’s image does not appear in mirrors or photographs so you’ll just have to take our word for it.”
Yikers! Now, that’s scary!
Kelly’s Army should feel proud…….
Time magazine just announced ‘The Protester’ as their person of the year for 2011……….
Way to go guys, , shows you make a difference in the world!………..
After reviewing the impromtu debate between Chris and Pam and seeing that the category is for the scariest, I have to give the nod to Pam Keller. Watching her move in and out of Chris Thompson’s personal space to attempt to drown out Chris’s perspective, was down right scary when you consider that Pam Keller is a Teacher whose job is to be considerate of, and to encourage civil discussions of opposing viewpoints.
Jan Flory just reminds me of a proverbial apple polisher, which last time I checked, were pretty harmless in my book, due to the transparency of their intentions.
“Apple polisher”, you mean like this one?:
Is that the Pam Keller screeching at John Kobylt of KFI at some union protest about the poor teachers?
hahahahah, she met her match that day. Wrong person to F with about that subject.
Gadz, he called this moron out for days-replaying and commenting on the incident.
I remember thinking she sounded like a total psycho hag trying desparately and unsucessfully to defend teachers to John.
And who took that picture of Flory demonstrating that magic carpets work as well as planes? that’s a great moment in history
When shes not protesting at union meetings and wishing upon a star, she was mayor of fullerton, by the looks of the sunglasses shes wearing, is enthusiastic Pam, a welder on the side?
That Pam Keller’s mouth repulses me!
Just like when she got up and spewed at the council meeting last week. She has that same forced ‘shit-eatin’ grin that’s disgusting.
“What’s up with the name calling” and “you goon’s”
That’s pretty good trolling for an illiterate hypocrite.
You can’t be Pam Keller unless Pam Keller is completlely off of her nut.
I don’t know any school teachers with that poor puntuation as was in your comment above.
And your attempt at being philisophical was so weak, you come across as one who has been skipping her meds and missing her therapist appointments.
We can help you.
Lesson 1: First off, notice how the rest of us use periods capital letters or commas so that our comments read like we’re saying them.
Lesson 2: Don’t try to be philisophical.
Lesson 3: Stop wishing you would have been Mayor. Your time is up.
Fullerton 3 put down your crackpipe you useful idiot!
…after chastising the bloggers for personal attacks, the new troll steps in his own caca.
1. a stupid or deliberately foolish person
@ the true blogosphere wanna be trolls.
A bully or thug, esp. one hired to terrorize or do away with opposition.
What exactly this blog is, I wonder who funds and backs these shenanigans and who here is making money and attracting attention off of the beating of a homeless man. Two wrongs don’t make a right. You people and the Unions make me sick. Quit watching Faux News and get to class you thugs.
Goon? Nobody on this site beat up and intentionally arrested innocent people; nobody here beat a helpless man to death; nobody here covered up these crimes and proudly boasts the support of the FPD culprits.
“Half of you’s would be sitting around picnicking like in the 1700′s while somebody was hanging to death.”
Congratulations. Or as you would say “congradulations.” I believe you submitted the most illiterate comment ever posted here.
God save the Queen!!
Well then F3, if that is indeed Webster’s definition of Goon, FFFF and us commenters are not a good example of Goon.
FPD is a much better example of the definition of Goon, as well as Jones, McKinley and Bankhead.
You see, no one hired Tony or anyone at FFFF to exploit all the wrong-doings of Fullerton’s city leaders and PD. A more proper term for Tony and FFFF would be ‘Snitch’, and many of us are so greatful that they did ‘Snitch’ about the corruption brought forth by the real Goons I mentioned earlier.
I prefer to refer to Tony as a ‘Crusader’. Look up that definition so I don’t have to type further.
Those officers are American Citizens and still deserve due diligence under the law. Innocent until proven guilty is a Constitutional Right. There is enough support garnered here and enough media attention to weigh a fair trail. The FBI is involved etc… If you are mad because they are still employed rightfully so but uphold the same principles you are claiming to fight for.
Geeze Laweeze Fullerton Harpoon, It means that even though these officers might be paid murderers of the government, they have a right to the processes of the legal system like everyone else. It’s their constitutional right to remain silent in order that they not self incriminate themselves and the same goes for the rest of the members involved. Of course though they are not going to fire these officers, then that would presume guilt on the governing body of Fullerton. It could be promising that the Feds are involved, however these same Feds are the party responsible for writing the book on the training received by these officers. It seems to me that feds think more in line with thoughts like collateral damage and preventing the “apocalypse” as some of you say. Regardless, since 9/11 Bush and the Department of Homeland Security have militarized our local police departments through out the country and that’s who I blame this stuff on.
Wrong. You don’t have to be guilty to be fired. They violated FPD policy and ended up killing a man, regardless of what the courts ultimately determine.
Cops have many more protections that those afforded the rest of us. I’m not losing any sleep worrying about those goons’ rights.
Yes, the cops will be fired long before the court case is over. What happens at trial isn’t really that relevant to the city from a discipline perspective.
“Regardless, since 9/11 Bush and the Department of Homeland Security have militarized our local police departments through out the country”
While completely true, that doesn’t exonerate those weilding the tasers.
No, Chief McKinley says they are aliens. Aliens are not citizens. Hell, they aren’t even human.
Kelly Thomas had due diligence rights as well, you think for one moment those criminal cool thought about that before they murdered him, you’re nuts! Lay off the damned crackpipe you crack hoe!
Wow, when did it ever mean shit to attend CSUF? You’re entire college system is ran by union goons, union goons in training, attacking their fellow union’s. Comedy and Amateur hour all in the same blog.
You might want to actually read some of the posts here before you attack this blog as being any kind of friend of public unions. Am I missing something?
So, now Fullerton 3 is Fullerton 4.
Sounds like even YOU don’t believe in yourself.
In response to your comment above, “Those officers are American Citizens and still deserve due diligence under the law.”
What they deserve prior to their ‘special treatment due diligence’ is the people (US) raising hell at the council meetings like we’ve been doing as well as those proven productive protests on Saturdays in front of the police department.
Thanks to those actions, the DA (who never wants to prosecute his bad boys in blue) brought forth on at least two of those ‘Entitlement Expecting Badged Goons’ that were responsible for murdering an innocent citizen.
These ‘Wheels of Justice’ have seemingly moved slower than normal since the criminal/murderers in this case are police officers.
^ my above comment should have read “the DA brought forth charges”
I must say I enjoyed this today…thanks for making me laugh about an already sad situation…
It’s obvious that “our” entire college system is a foreign to you.
Must be from South Philly with the you’se guys reference?
Tony Florentine is that you’se?
Fullerton Lover, “your” Fullerton foolish. Good job on the continued pressure being put on local CC. You people are killing me with laughter. Get off the misspellings already, you people are making it to easy to troll. I’m bored and out, later.
Dat Pam Keller sho nuff gots a big mouf.
THAT’S what turns me off about her and Julia Roberts for that matter.
And Carly Simon!
She got awsome legs though.
And Black Ladies.
That’s for sure.
And Carly Simon!
That’s for sure.
Merijoe, Wrong Guy, The Moron,
Fedup and I would still like to get together with all of you. If you have some extra time, please let us know. Sunday would probably be best. Merijoe, I am fine thanks..How are you and the others doing?
Slidebar Cafe Helps Homeless After Owner Previously Slammed Kelly Thomas
Too little too late. There’s blood on them there hands.
Yeah, is he trying to make himself look good now?? PLEASE SPARE ME!!!!!
From: freetibetbooks.wordpress.com: I feel for disabled people, all of my community are on disability, of one sort or another. The problem is that being on SSI is a lifestyle; ‘how to milk it’ spreads like wildfire, from one disabled con artist to the next. A lot of what people say about the homeless being leeches is true, but, what are their options in life? Certainly they are not in a position to make a productive contribution to society, or even a living; or they would not be on disability. Their participation must be counter culture, and that means joining the underground of subversives and racketeers. SSI pays just enough to get into a cheep room, or to eat: it does not pay for both. So, naturally disabled people have to have more money, and are all about getting it. They are good at draining dry any resource who happens by. I have a policy that worked for Jesus, “Neither a borrower, nor, a lender be.” I try not to have any financial transactions with homeless people. Not because I don’t understand how much they need the money, but rather because I understand that once you open the door they will never stop knocking on it. That is their career, what choice do they have? So, I never give and I never receive from anyone in the homeless community, including the Charities. O.K., so I brake my own rules occasionally, but I have a fall back rule; if I brake Rule Number One; No Giving, my punishment is that I have to stay away from the person who I gave to for one month. It’s inconvenient but I deserve to be inconvenienced, and it is the only way to break the ‘gimmy game,’ habit before the giver becomes a total target for exploitation, by the receiver. The biggest tight-wad on the planet was Milton Friedman, figures. He had a house next to my lawyer’s house up north. He chased me for years, I thought of him as a creepy old guy who embarrassed everyone with his stinginess. However, I highly recommend stinginess toward the disenfranchised, or you too will soon be the disenfranchised. Homeless people know all of the rules of being mean, for example, there is a homeless guy sitting across from me, at Starbucks, right now, he came up to me with a gift of a tea bag, (which does not seem mean to the casual observer, but), he tells me that with a little hot water and cream I’ll have a delicious free treat. Here is what he knows (that he thinks I do not know): If the Starbucks staffers see you ‘bring your own,’ they then have the police find a reason to make sure that you leave and never come back. To my diabolical homeless ‘friend’s’ way of thinking, he has put a tea bag on my table; cuing the barista who eventually glances in my direction, that I am an undesirable who brings her own. My homeless ‘friend’ will come back with a cup of hot water, bummed for me, from the barista; who then politely pits herself against me; empathizing with the homeless guy who intimated to her that I made him fetch the hot water for me. Mr. Diabolical will then tell me to try the tea with cream, (knowing that) when I go to the condiments bar for cream the baristas will put me on the Starbucks deadbeat list, and kick me out. The police all come to Starbucks for coffee (because the baristas are cute) those cops will be informed about me and my eviction for leeching. The homeless guy and his friends will laugh about putting a nail in my coffin; toward an arrest. Never turn your back on the ocean; never let your guard down around a homeless person: screwing you is his career. -Carolyn (None of my homeless ‘friends’ know where I live: I live with them, on the street, and have for 20 years, as far as they are concerned. I always throw the tea bag away, and order the most expensive coffee on the menu; the very second that Mr. Diabolical, or any number of his friends, pull that trick on me, which is why it has never worked. It does work on all of their acquaintances who stupidly indulge homeless people, by graciously accommodating their seemingly innocent attempts to be fawning and nice. Homeless people are not humble, or kind: they are mean, as are all people who are mistreated as a class. By the same token people who think that the maid doesn’t spit in the tea that she serves, are dead wrong. I gave the bank account information for the book ‘The Jabberwocky,’ to several homeless people, as recipients of the proceeds from the sale of the book on blurb.com: this is what I know; they will figure out that the bank account stays empty until they learn to market the book: A better career than panhandling. They are fast, they are smart, they are diabolical; success is a given: I can afford to be ‘outsmarted,’ we all can, if it means a better society to live in (in the long run), a society with fewer homeless people. Anyone who is depicted in The Jabberwocky (available at blurb.com) is welcome to be a signer on that bank account.)

For your edification, translated to Japanese via google languages and then back to English. If you read brief excerpts it forms a sort of Zen/Dada poetry:
“Say that homeless people on leech Many of the drums, their options in life, but what is true,,?”
“they certainly social, not in a position to contribute to a productive life, or disability or they will be . their participation, unless counter-culture, it means that you join the underground racketeer and subversives.”
“tightest on the planet – WAD is Milton Friedman, was a figure. He told me of the North had a lawyer’s house next door. I chased him for years, I think of him as a creepy old guy at the meanness of his embarrassment to everyone.”
“the rules mean that all homeless people, for example, at Starbucks on my way you know that there is a homeless man sitting in now, he is (do not think the average, casual observers came to me with the gift of a tea bag), he was a little hot water and cream tells me that I would have a delicious free treats. where (he thinks I do not know) is that he knows: the staff of Starbucks, if the display the “have their own,” they are then the police can come back and leave you will have to find a reason to ensure that no. homeless diabolical in my thinking “friends” on the road, He put the tea bag on the table for me, I am finally on my way to bring her own undesirable people look varistors, cuing.”
“My homeless “friends” from the barista, for me disappointed, you will come back with a cup of hot water, I let myself fight against me politely then I sympathize with the homeless guy hint to her that I get the water for him.”
“The devil said, I put me to the list of dead beat Starbucks barista bar when you go for cream seasoning, and I would drive out. (you know) and try a cup of tea with cream Police tell me you will be notified of eviction and me for I am reaching the cops all these (so cute barista) come to Starbucks for coffee.”
“Please do not turn their backs to the sea. vigilant around homeless people: and screw you, and his career.”
“Carolyn ( homeless I live in my “No on knows a friend: I’m on the streets, living together for 20 years and, as far as I’m concerned that they throw the tea bag away from usual that, and ordered the most expensive. coffees on the menu, his diabolical, or any number of his friends is the reason why it never worked, but the moment I pull the trick graceful, silly.”
“As all the people are receiving unfair treatment, such as serving tea in her person the same token we do not spit it into a maid, I’m completely wrong”
“ATT: listening to children. Paragraphs are considered offensive blog entry (we have not been submitted, we are comments): One is rude and snappy liner also reversed, as is FLAMES.

Your Japanese translation is really funny. If you went to my website and read my book, The Jabberwocky, you saw that I write, a lot, in Japanese. It is really hard to translate into English, because it’s all pictures that are culture specific, there is only one letter in the entire language, it’s actually two letters combined, the symbol for the word ‘of.’ Chinese and Japanese are the same written language with the absence of ‘of.’
On Starbucks Rage, From: Freetibetbooks.wordpress.com
I’m not saying that having an Apple Air makes you stupid, but it does put you in a class with screaming baristas, so wired up on caffeine that they don’t know where they are, much less that they are not the center of the universe. Clueless, they blithely squawk on, and on, and on, as if anyone among their captives is attempting to listen. And there you sit, with your peers, scrolling though the ‘touch pad pond,’ head in ‘the cloud,’ as if anything out there isn’t gooey glamour, and gutless glitz. It’s an illusion; a magic show; an act for fools swimming in swill; dimwits who think that because it smells good it must not be excrement: “It’s effortless, it feels right: it must be meant to be! To thyne own self be true,” they exclaim to the heavens, adopting an eternally sophomoric epistemology. A tip for the capricious, and the easily led along, on a lark: Disruptive enough to hold the floor? It won’t make you important. The screechy shrieking moron making coffee, is probably supplementing a disability check, perhaps from a head injury sustained in an uninsured hit and run accident which failed to eliminate her entirely. Her’s is a busy agenda of annoying people while accomplishing nothing; idiosyncratic, in the eyes of all. If your job is to serve coffee, with a smile: Don’t make the job a stage play, starring you. -Carolyn
That made me LOL!!!
right when I think…were da crazies at…..bam she posts again….
