Rising condo prices aren’t likely to slow anytime soon

  1. Are Federal authorities concerned that di Masi will be getting special treatment if they allow him to return home?
    Cruel, inhumane thought process from the small and ignorant people. Shame on them, truly. Bring di Masi home, for heaven’s sake.

    • Yes, Jamison, I agree ~~There is more empathy for animals than humans ! Something is wrong !!
      Not that animals don’t deserve to be treated well, but Sal Dimasi is NO THREAT to the Community ~~~give him some compassion !

  2. Sal Dimasi was never a threat to the community or anyone else for that matter. He was an elected official who broke the trust of the people who elected him. Accepting asking for and kickbacks is a crime and an accepting something like that as “this is just the way it is” only makes us a third world country. While some are out there fighting and dying to protect our country, polititions need to be more accountable. Besides he is probably getting better care where he is than most veterans get.
