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. He writes on issues nobody else will tackle and is a sentinel in a town filled with yellow journalism. This Sunday, he writes about three Youngstown officials, including the city's mayor, who received probation rather than prison time by a Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge last week for serious crimes involving public trust. "What other area of the country can boast of having a congressman, county prosecutor, county sheriff, judges, other elected officials and organized crime bosses being hauled off to prison in chains? Not even Chicago or New York," de Souza  writes. .
