Welcome to Bertram de Souza's hometown of Youngstown, Ohio, possibly the most corrupt city in the United States. Mr. de Souza has been the lead opinion writer for "The Vindicator" for decades now and has written some great opinions over the years in his weekly Sunday column.

"What other area of the country can boast of having a congressman, county

organized crime bosses being hauled off to prison in chains? Not even
Chicago or New York," de Souza writes. .
