The PARD website hasn't been updated in 6 months. Yesterday afternoon at 3;38 PM, the "Contacts" page was edited to remove the names of Nella Van Dyke, Cynthia Hosick, Chistopher Lupke, Tina Vona-Pergola, Bob Grunewald, Dorothy Swanson, and Jose Alamillo. The current version of the page is here. The Google cached version is here.
Okay, Vona-Pergola has been gone for a couple of years and Alamillo is on sabbatical. But diehards like Lu Laoshi, Citizen Hosick, and Bob "Ass End of Wal-Mart" Grunewald quitting PARD? Seems hard to believe. But who knows? The end is in sight and maybe the rats are jumping off the ship. After all, PARD is going to be financially liable for the city and Wal-Mart's legal expenses when this appeal boondoggle is all said and done.
Or maybe it's the fact that I revealed Shuxin Lupke's identity at 12:35 PM yesterday and PARD is scrambling to cover it up. C'mon. Lupke's name has been associated with PARD in the media for the last three years, not to mention Google caches and the Wayback Machine . It's way too late to put that horse back in the barn.
