The story is broken

All of you wondering what the big deal was with my Mel Gibson post, Eric Heyl is the lucky guy brave enough to write about the story that I originally posted, then took down.

Now you all can get in on the scoop.

    I used to wait on Mr. Sunseri at an Italian restaurant in the North Hills that I worked at for a number of years. I am very surprised at his outburst because I did not even know that he could form a complete sentence since any time I waited on him, he had a huge unlit cigar stuck between his lips that he munched on. I never saw him take that nasty thing out of his mouth and I swear that he even ate his dinner without taking it out and I just remember watching his cigar bounce when he was mumbling his dinner order.

    It’s also now on the website of the Jewish Chronicle. I am kind of surprised that more bloggers haven’t picked it up since the story is just all over the place. I guess it’s a pretty sticky subject. But Sunseri has a rep of being a jerk. A friend from a very reputable charity approached him for a food donation for a benefit and he practically shoved her out of the door for bothering him…funny, I bet if she called today she’d get her donation!

    you are thinking of JIMMY Sunseri, Dawn. This guy is their cousin….even less class!

    And I’m Jewish. Let it go, people.

    Hugh, if you need some publicity for yourself (and the community), there are better ways to get it. Sunseri “and his kind” do not perform the mitzvah and should not be embarrassed in the press to do so. Shame on you!

    Now be a good boy and help clean up Homewood and Perry Hilltop.

    I think the whole rally idea was pathetic, too…and most likely an attempt by Mr. Pollock to try to find a way to suggest that something positive come out of this mess. And it is a mess of _David Sunseri’s_ making and he will therefore have to deal with any consequences.

    You say “let it go.” Wha? That’s the kind of attitude that lets people of a like mind to Sunseri think that it’s OK to spew their brand of ignorance. Historically, Jews have failed to rise up against expressions of anti-semitism…we don’t want to rock the boat…which has led to some pretty heinous results.

    Forgive, sure–forget, I don’t think so.

    The fact that I’ve come into contact with two people named Herky is what blows my mind.

    There was a Herky’s Gas Station on Station Road in Erie for quite a while. I think it’s gone now though.

    Yeah,yeah and fat Al Sharpton spews his brand of bile and it ‘s not even in the papers or on the TV news.
    I guess what’s good for some is not good for some others.

    A rally wouldn’t teach him anything. I say that Sunseri should be obligated to go to every Bar/Bat Mitzvah in the Pittsburgh Area for the next year. or two.

    Thanks Jen! I guess that I didn’t read the article that closely. I just saw the name Sunseri and ran with it!

    Woy, it’s still there. Well the gas station is but I don’t know if it’s still named that. I’d pass it while frequenting Wesleyville Beer Distrib.
